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.

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 changed a diameter and lost part of my revolve. Is there anyway to re-revolve the part? Please attach the file (or at least an example of what you are talking about).

I would like the Rev table in a drawing to be driven from the rev and notes in workgroup PDM. I have enabled the revision table property in VaultAdmin, read help, still no luck.

I want to have a link to the short verison of SW-LastSavedDate in the upper row of the BOM. When I link to property I choose SW-LastSavedDate and then set for short format with no time. The datum looks fine at first, but then when I close the "Link to property" window it jumps to Long format with time.

Send the file to your VAR Yes, the part resides in our PDM vault and the drawing is attached to the model as well. Hope this helps.

I have just recently discovered that if you add a hyperlink to a Solidworks drawing it does maintain the link when the drawing is saved as a PDF. This could be very useful in linking the drawing to other associated documents, like specifications. What I would like to do is add the hyperlink to a small portion of the drawing notes which lists the related specification number.

I am trying to print to pdf, an 8.5 x 11 portrait drawing, with front view 1:1 in upper right corner and front view 8:1 in middle of page. I cannot get the two views to print consistently, and very rarely itdoesprint correctly (about 1 in 50 times), so it cannot be relied upon.

Does anyone know how to link the weight of the 3D model to appear on its drawing? Open the Part and go to File > Properties. That will open a table similar to the one shown below.

Hello, I am creating a view in a drawing and I am having trouble with the leaders not attaching in the correct locations. They appear to be floating. FWIW I created the view orientation in the model myself.

I'm trying to position tables close to the sheet edge, but i don't want it to snap to it. There seems to be a fairly big snap zone given to tables in drawings and this is causing a problem. When I get even moderately close to any edge, it snaps instead of staying where i want it. I can't find a setting to disable table snapping.

I am trying to make a drawing of a new part, while referencing an already made drawing of an old part. I know there is a way to use SolidWorks Explorer and use the references but I don't know how to do that. Basically I am asking how to make a new drawing of a new part while referencing an already made drawing of a similar part, but the new drawing will automatically be made using the old drawing references of similar dimensions and such using SolidWorks File Explorer.

OK - I have recently started using weldments. I can create the weldment and add in non-library items..like plates. However, the plate will not be called out correctly in the cut list.
