So, we have this discussion about impressive SW tricks: Let's make another thread to capture the little things your co-workers/clients/customers do with SOLIDWORKS that bring thoughts of violence. Extra points if there's nothing technically wrong (see item 2 below) with what they've done but if you were in charge of the universe it would earn them a one-way trip into another dimension.

Ordinate Dimensions incorrect sometimes? Since I was using positional tolerances for a lot of features I wanted to use ordinate dimensions to make the drawing less cumbersome.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

I am trying to run SW17 on my new surface pro. It has Intel Iris Plus 640 GPU. I have been having issues with the OpenGL. I saw in a few forums where people would go in and change the regedit for solidworks hardware.

I know this question has been asked before, but I've got a slightly different slant on it. I've dusted off our ancient Epson Stylus Pro 7600 . It don't get used very often and I've measured the results.

I'm currently on CAD duty, and I've got a ton of .SLDDRW drawings to convert to .DWG. Most of these SLDDRW files have multiple sheets, so I'm looking to export each sheet into a single DWG file where possible. Most of the SLDDRW files have a common scale throughout them, though some have scale changes; I know that I'll have to save these separately.

I have one data card set up for all my files (sldprt, slddrw, step, pdf, dxf). When I run a covert task (sldprt ->dxf) I want the data card variables to get transfered to dxf file. I managed to do this by converting slddrw->pdf and sldprt->step, but can't seem to get it work with sldprt->dxf convert task. I did add all my variables in the Task window under File Card (see image).

This is an assembly file with no assembly in graphic area . Is it possible to make appear New Part file in the FM Design Tree (without using any origin plane) when assembly file is empty? I think you'll need a plane or face to attach it to.

I am really excited about this macro I have been working on, it is traversing the assembly and compiling a BOM with Raw material numbers (custom property) or part numbers based on a few conditions, and for quantity either pulling cutlist total length in feet or a number of times the component is used in the assembly. A few things left to do with this, adding all like raw materials up instead of writing new lines and telling it to save as a comma delimited CSV for our inventory management

Once I have created my model then apply the material, my model briefly shows the color and texture of the material chosen but then reverts to white (default) and even though in the apprearance manager for the attached part it shows satin finish stainless steel, it still shows white. There must be a setting somewhere that I haven't found yet and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. How do I get rid of the white and have the part take on the material appearance?
