So, we have this discussion about impressive SW tricks:

 

What are your most impressive tricks of solidworks, Please spread.

 

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.  Here's a few to get the ball rolling:

 

  1. Create a sketch of sketch points for hole locations and then make a hole wizard hole where the positions sketch is a bunch of points coincident with the sketch you just drew.  See here for details.
  2. View...Hide/Show...Hide All Types.  I have a hot-key for displaying temporary axes.  Hide All Types makes it useless.
  3. Dimensions to hole centers on drawings.  Call me old-school, but the dimensions go to the center marks not the hole center:

 

I have many,many more.  Let's see if we have any in common.

Okay, that works pretty good. I guess all we have our ways of skinning the same cat, so to speak.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Thanks for the explanation. I guess we're still a little old school because we weld nuts on sheet metals instead Perhaps it is because we hadn't heard of these too lol

 

Edit: Tough, if I were to use them, I would probably proceed as Al mentionned, make an assembly to insert the sheet metal part and the fasteners. Perhaps I would concider inserting them at the part level but I'm not too fond of that so I'd keep it at the part level If it was only one fastener on a part that is only laser cut(doesn't require multiple operations on the part)

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Weld nuts are more forgiving since the holes can be over sized and does not matter if you push or pull the fasteners. PEM fasteners needs to have a specific hole for the correct fastener and also need to pull the fastener to the metal. You can push the PEM fastener out. Also PEM fasteners you have to use the correct thickness for the Gage of material.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Yes what works for you might not work for another company. I have not found the perfect way for all that makes since to all but this seems to work for us here so far. It does make it hard to explain to new hires to understand the process but I have been with the company here for ten years and see how the process flow thru the shop. I have found that the more drawings on the floor for one part the more likely that they will miss steps.

I know it might sound weird but for our company would have the PEM assembly for both the sheet metal and the hardware all as one drawing and the sheet metal part would have the same number as the assembly but for the name after the part number would be no drawing that way they would know there was PEM fasteners for that part. In the past everything had a drawing but the PEM fasteners would get missed so we started to make this the standard and now there is less mistakes on missing the PEM fasteners.

Doesn't sound weird at all, that is pretty much how we do it!

Three files in the folder - sheet metal part, assembly with PEMs, drawing of assembly with BOM listing PEM hardware and a flat pattern view of the part.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

While we used separate part numbers for the base sheet metal part and the sheet metal assy, they were on the same drawing, so that kept the number of drawings on the shop floor to a minimum. You're absolutely right, keep it simple, and you'll have fewer mistakes.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Will complain that their large assembly is slow but refuse to use any of the following:

 

Lightweight

Large Assembly Mode

Display States

Configurations (for simplification)

etc.

If we did a separate drawing for the sheet metal part and the assembly with the PEMs, our internal ERP system would require closing out the work order for the sheet metal part, and moving it to inventory before we could start the work order to insert the PEMs.

Sound like we are all talking about the same way to get the same result in some manner. I know this is not the best drawing to show but here is one of our drawings.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

I'm an avid hater or lightweight and large assembly mode. They cause more problems then they tend to save actual time.

 

Display states and configurations tough on the other hand are things I love and use. I've been using more and more display states to try and get my drawings to be lighter. I've noticed that when you hide stuff manually in a drawing it makes it heavier for the drawing.

 

It's as if SolidWorks loaded the assembly, the configs, the display states, the drawing and then the drawing view properties. So a view on a drawing will load everything it would require for it's display state and then actually hide the stuff because of the setting in the view properties telling it to.

By: Alex Lachance  Wed, 11 Jul 2018 13:24:07 GMT
Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Thats exactly what i thought as well, it loads a "full" assembly then subtracts whatever you've told it to.  I've tried it both ways and the file with hidden properties was much larger.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Getting back to the original topic about co-workers making blood boil, there was a guy that worked here when I was initially making the transition from the construction crew.  He had been hired for drafting and inventory control, and was told to teach me both so I could fill in when he was out.  His filing system for the inventory paperwork was a pile of papers on his desk.  I didn't think that was adequate.  And though I wasn't qualified to judge at the time, his drafting skills were at a similar level.

 

Then he tried to appropriate a better workspace than he had been assigned, and as part of his process he implied to someone that I agreed he needed to move when we hadn't even discussed it.  I found out later that I'd have been moved permanently earlier than I was, but when my boss on the construction crew was discussing the move with my current supervisor he told her: "You better get rid of J*** first, or Glenn will kill him" (I'm happy to report that they did).

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Make a design table to control a length driven part and load everything into the design table.   Every dimension, sketch, feature, etc.  Just to drive a single dimension.

Absolutely agree. Something loads in light weight or large assembly mode and invaribly the first thing I need to do  is select parts to resolve so I can do something with it.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

All it takes is a double-click on a part to resolve it.  The speed increase is worth the double click.   And there is almost nothing you can't do with a lightweight part that is different from when the part is resolved.  

 

The only thing I can think of where lightweight causes issues are with equations. 

By: Ken Maren  Wed, 11 Jul 2018 13:57:11 GMT
Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

I've never had a noticeable speed change from working with lightweight mode. On the other hand, I have had countless times the wrong things being displayed because of lightweight mode. Try working with skeletons and a bunch of configurations, it gets messy pretty quickly.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

We've had some posts about annoying coworkers, even when the annoying behavior wasn't related to SW (or any software package), so here's one more:

 

I was working on a team of 60 or 80 people in a good-sized facility. I worked in a room with maybe 6 other people, and if a given person was out of the room, there were any number of places s/he could be.

 

One day I needed to get hold of Rebecca, who worked in the same room. I looked around, and Linda, who worked a couple of cubes away from me, was the only other person in the room, so I addressed her:

 

"Linda, do you know where Rebecca is?"

 

"She's there." (No indication of where "there" was.)

 

"Where's `there'?"

 

"Where would she be?" (If I knew where she "would be," I wouldn't have been asking where she was!)

 

So we sparred back and forth. Maybe a minute and 8 or 9 questions later, she vaguely pointed toward a door off the room we were in and said, "She's in that office."

 

"Do you mean she's in Bill Smith's office?"

 

"Yes."

 

I had to suppress the urge to say, "So why the bloody hell didn't you just say, `She's in Bill Smith's office' the first time I asked?" It wasn't even a rude/personal/inappropriate question, and she knew the answer all along.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Honestly, maybe it has to do with me working on a server but while SolidWorks is processing a rebuild, it will sometimes freeze or stop responding and a few clicks to get the ''Program is not responding'' message usually helps it get through. Perhaps you could notify him of that..?

My claim to fame, at my first engineering job we had a project to design a trailer chassis with a mast that would stand vertical and attach to a 40' tall 8' diameter storage container. It would then lift the container, lay it down and position it o the chassis for transport. the idea was to be able to fill the container at the point of origin and not need to transfer it again until the usage point of the product. Our chassis worked well but we only manufactured 3. The last I knew, the only company using the containers was.......the makers of Shiner Bock to transport the hops from Sheboygan Falls Wisconsin to Shiner Texas. Apparently hops is an easily damaged product and the fewer times it is handled the better beer it makes.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

I hate being asked/imposed to do overtime. I do overtime pretty much every week and I do it when I want and for how long I want to do it so when they come and ask me to do overtime it is pretty much imposed. I've done my fair share of overtime when I was young, and I'm speaking 65-70 hours a week, so I'd rather go at my own pace for overtime.

 

I hate hearing ''Take your time'' from my bosses when they'll be the first to ask us to hurry up to meet schedules.

 

I hate when co workers hum songs. I can understand a song comes on and you enjoy it and you start to hum it a little bit, but do you really need to hum the whole album?

 

I hate when people ask you a question out of context and expect you to somehow know the context when it's not intended.

 

I hate when people click every single ''Do not show again'' box and then complain because SolidWorks did something without them noticing or without their ''consent''.

 

I hate it when people modify the Windows Registry to change zoom speed, scroll speed and other stuff like that, trouble shooting becomes a real pain in the ass.

Ok, I may have had a beer or two in my day.  When I was growing up in Independence, WI we had a population of 1200 people and 15 bars.  I can still name them all so you just brought some good memories for me Steve Calvert

Wisconsin makes great hops, and then they put them into New Glarus!

Why Fat Squirrel isn't in their regular rotation is beyond me.

Betty Baker wait, 1200 people and 15 bars.  That's a pretty good ratio and I didn't even bring out my calculator...

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

Ok Steve Calvert Wisconsin may have a drinking problem because the town 10 miles away from where I grew up had 13 bars, all of which I can still name too.  So 28 bars in 10 miles might have been a little excessive.

On that trend.....here's this:

My personal favorite is the Librewery.....Part of the Library Pub in Houghton, MI.  I grew up eating at the Library, of course....it wasn't a brewery when I was growing up....that cam after it burned down and got rebuilt.

About the same along with the number of "cricks" we have.

Re: What do your co-workers do with SOLIDWORKS that makes your blood boil?

80 regulars per bar is not to bad.  I like a variety of customers in the bars, some your happy when they come by some your happy when they leave.  Running a bar is one job that is better thought of on the side lines, as there is no joy more over rated than that of owning your own business especially if it is a bar.
