Working on a model that involves numerous equations and global variables. Circular structure divided into equal segments. Currently I have a single segment as an assembly and do a circular pattern to give me the full structure. This assembly needs to be easily modified for different diameters, number of sections, etc.

Attached is the assembly I have created with a Pallet on one of the shelves. When the product is placed on top of the pallet, it snaps in the center. I am trying to figure out the best way to support said weight while still being able to load pallets on with a forklift. I would appreciate any suggestions.

This is difficult to explain, but basically, I saw a post about how to make multiple parts with equations determined within an assembly, and I used this to create a modular assembly (call it assembly1) with multiple parts that rely on a global variable within it. Now, I want to put multiple instances of assembly1 inside a larger assembly (let's call it assembly2), but I want the global variable to be different each time. Is there a way to do that without needing to set a bunch of configurations/

This is very odd, It seems Solidworks knows where the parts are but just won't open them. I have to manually open every part before I open the assembly file or it will look like this: After I open all the parts, I open the assembly and all the parts are there.

I am building an assembly in Solidworks 2016 student edition and when I right click a component the menu is blank. I need to be able to use the "Move with Triad" feature.Solidworks_Sucks.PNG ,right_click_menu

First off, I have to thankJohn Stoltzfusfor his help in getting us to our current position. We see the value in the Skeleton Sketch Part Method because inevitably near the end of our projects we are having to make fundamental design changes. So, we need a robust method of handling those changes to our assemblies. I worked with John and tried to map out what I thought would be a good workflow.

So, I cannot drag and drop at all in Solidworks. It is my primary way of adding parts to assemblies and opening parts. I used to be able to but, now I can't. Nothing has changed on my PC just one day I couldn't drage and drop anymore.

I am extremely angry right now. I have been using SW for 5 years and it is impossible to believe that basic mates from reference plane of one part to reference keep flipping all over the place. It is Saturday I have to finish a project that is way behind schedule and here I am watching a simple pipe assembly flip mates all over the place! This is bull**t!

When creating a mounting hole pattern, square or bolt circle, in Creo I would create holes in one part and then create a single hole referencing the seed of the pattern on the other part and then get the same pattern on the second part. Super useful when you need to make changes to the initial pattern. All the holes in the assembly would follow the master pattern.

Exploding radially along circular array I have some small parts that are attached to the sides of a 12-pointed star shaped part. There's a part on each side of every star point.

Are you planning on just a solid model and just have the outside represent a Steeple or are you considering to put it together pc by pc, including all the nails, screws etc???

I have assembly and part files which include prefix in the name: 'AAA'. I have now some development, let's call it 'XXX' request and I want to use 'AAA' Model as a base model. I make a copy of it using Pack&Go and exported 'AAA' to new location but changed the prefix to 'XXX'.

cannot "configure component" This has changed since the installation of SWX2013 sp1.0. I have an assembly that consists of discreet parts.

Hi, I noticed some strange frezzing when doing mates in assemblies. I got roughly 20 mates in assembly and every time I mate something it freezes for 1 second. (Also happens when I try to rotate assembly it freezes for fraction of a second, then runs buttery smootly. however only after I unpress mouse button and then press again to gain control of movement).

While editing an assembly with multiple subassemblies the tangent edges will turn off randomly for only select subassemblies--sometimes one, sometimes all, rarely consistent. Of note, the "display style" is always set to "tangent with edges" and never changes. Jive Software Version: 2018.7.0.1_jx, revision: 20180814200645.7fbf90c.release_18.7.0-jx

In my master scheme I have two sub assemblies and eight bolts (non toolbox parts). If I click on the first sub assembly then >mass properties I get the mass properties of that sub assembly, same with the second sub assembly and same with the bolts. But when I select the top level master scheme I get the following message:

Hello, what is the best method to mate a dynamic energy chain? So the chain moves with the carriage. you need to first create an assembly for drag chain which is flexible (advance mates like distance and angle do not work in higher assemblies, so you have to do it using standard mates)

Move the components within a sub-assembly using flexible sub-assemblies. Modify the component properties of a sub-assembly to change it from rigid to flexible. Drag components of a flexible sub-assembly in the main assembly to observe their motion. Learn about the impact that flexible sub-assemblies have on overall assembly performance.

In 2017 they seem to have changed how mating works in an assembly and it's messing up my models. Before the parts used to slide along one axis but now they move around in the other axes and moving parts around that don't need to. Anyone know if there is a setting to change it back to how it worked in 2016 and older? Here's a quote I found in the whats new section:
