I wanted to start a new thread where we can collect some of the craziest messages that we get when working with solidworks. Please try to insert the image into the text using the insert image button. Also, try not to post here unless you have an image to contribute, so that there is not too much text in between each image.  Anyone have the chinese one?

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

I send it in to my VAR.

See what they gonna say.

I'm expecting: "It's because you're using non-certified graphic card"

 

2018 SP4.0.  Will try 2019 when I can download it.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

I had to get my IT department to approve the sight that it was trying to send the info to.  Internet security and all that stuff. 

after that I was able to send reports in again.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

I'm thinking it could be network related.  Since I can attach files in forum, I kinda doubt they block upload to SolidWorks.  Then it depends how SW send the files, http, ftp, ssh .....

VAR just told me to turn on 'Help make SOLIDWORKS ....' option which is on all the time.

RX said enough memory but the icon still has a red !.

 

Looking at memory use in task manager, there are used memory, cached and free.

Cached is 8GB, free is 256MB.  Windows consider free as cached + free.  Probably SW didn't consider cached as free.

Add me to the list of TB lovers.  I don't know how/why other people have problems with it.  I suspect they actually haven't tried it and are just relying on hearsay.  We customized TB for our fasteners and that was sooo easy.  The result is we have a list of fasteners to choose from that are only the parts we inventory instead of all possible sizes/lengths to have to surf through.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Dennis I too pared the list down greatly, added custom part numbers, multiple materials, everything works fine. A few years back, I even copied a SHCS to make tri-lobular (Torx) screws, and those worked too, although there was some trial and error involved.

Or just to add to that if I may Dennis,

Perhaps like me initially, the hate for TB comes from a lack of understanding on how it works, how to manipulate parts and the correct methods for customizing it. Like anything in SolidWorks, perhaps trying to learn a bit about a function or feature pays dividends and is more benefitial than just bagging it straight up!

this is extra fun when you have taken the time to fill out the information about what happened before you crashed.

 

NOTE TO SOLIDWORKS:  this seems to happen more often when I have two sessions of SWX running, which I have to do often to keep from one assembly I'm working on interfering with another.

By: Dan Golthing  Fri, 21 Sep 2018 16:15:39 GMT
Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Dan,

I used to always get that error message.  We are behind a firewall.  I don't know if SW changed something or if our IT made a change, but after upgrading to 2018 my error reports are going through.  If you aren't on 2018, it may be another reason to upgrade.

By: Matt Peneguy  Fri, 21 Sep 2018 16:19:04 GMT
Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

as previously stated, This error is usually related to firewall settings, Virus software can also play a role.

if I take my time to fill out all the information, I copy all of it in an email to my Var and attach the log file.

they usually get back with me quickly.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Hi Matt Peneguy, Paul Salvador,

 

I was presenting my Boltments preseantion to the Seattle Area SOLIDWORKS Power Users Group last Thursday and this error occured.

 

I had just exploded my super block and was creating relations to the existing model and the Skelton Sketch when it went into error.  After rebuilding the sketch I found it on top of the Feature Manager.  Prettty funny.  In this scenario it happens about one time in four.

 

Easy to fix though – drag it down to the bottom of the tree.

It's not just Dell that it doesn't recognize

 

Which is funny considering that we choose this system so that it would be certified, and yes the driver is the SW recommended one.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Our PDM setup uses our Windows logon.  That's why I made the guess. I'm sure you were seeing stuff that was locally cached, but when PDM tried to get something over the network, it couldn't and that was the result.  That's all just speculation, but that's why I asked the question.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

When you apply an image file on a surface, SW asks you to save it as a decal (.p2m) file.

If you ignore that and you want to close the menu, than SW asks you to save it as a material !

But there is no "Save Material...." button in the tab "Color/Image" of this menu.

There is a button "Save Appearance..." which is saving your image as an Appearance-file with (.p2m) file-extension which is exactly  the same as a decal.!!

Looks like a circular reference in this menu, and yes there is beer in this image.

By: Henk Bruijn De  Mon, 15 Oct 2018 19:21:43 GMT
Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Not an error message as such, but if you have a file open with a decal in it, and then externally edit the image, when you delete the decal and then add a fresh one, the image preview shows the new version but SolidWorks uses the cache version it already has. I have to completely close SolidWorks down and re-start it for it to loose the cache version and then accept the new one

Can anybody advise on how to reduce the number of instances of a mirrored feature?

 

Well.....you could subtract 1.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

or,..  the error of the mirror is reflected by the distance reduction between the patterned instances?

Why not?

It'll convert to a line.

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Ya got me.  Seems like a bug to me.  But, I believe it's well established that you can't create a line from intersecting planes...You can make an axis, though.

I ran into that exact problem yesterday. And I was selecting lines parallel to the sketch plane, both times I received this message.

I get this a lot.

SW have trouble selecting edge and points.  Move the point a bit and you get the face.

Also I'm used to Projecting Face to get a line in another universe

Re: Your favorite Solidworks error messages

Not sure if anyone posted this error - it happened once a while to me as I have no component is in rollback - I ended up close all files and lost some work because SW didn't let me save other files

 

 

 

all is grey out and force me to kill SW

Christian Yep, it hasn't happened to me in a while, but it has happened a few times in the past. Totally random.
