NEWBIE COMPLAINTS I am assuming that SolidWorks is listening here, so as a SWE Newbie, but Oldbie on both Solidworks regular, and AutoCAD regular and Electrical, I have some really day to day basic complaints about this software that seem really easy to fix.

You'll want to use "configurations" to turn options on and off within the assembly. You can assign unique part numbers to each configuration, "100A", "200A", etc... Configs turn things on and off (suppressed or unsuppressed), this applies to parts, features and mates.

I have a project that shows open by a different user than myself but it is not actually open. Is there a "flag"/file that needs to be reset after an ugly exit? I need to archive the project but can't because it thinks it's being used by someone else.

Solidworks Electrical weird routing results I have been testing Solidworks Electrical for a while now and made ~80% of first project - made most of the electrical schematics (2D). Because of setbacks with 3D Electrical which I explained in posthttps://forum.solidworks.com/thread/210094I couldn’t make any progress with 3D.

Are origin/destination arrows used to go only from one sheet to the next, or can they be used to go from a Mixed Scheme System Layout to a Wiring Diagram? Jive Software Version: 2018.7.0.1_jx, revision: 20180814200645.7fbf90c.release_18.7.0-jx

I have been trying to create a Horizontal Terminal Strip drawing in my schematics that would start it's terminal mark numbering from the top - down then left - right. But as of right now, the drawing always shows Circuit 0, Connection 0 at the bottom of the terminal, then Connection 1 at the top. Which has been confusing to our production team as the Terminal Strip Drawings I make through Excel are always top down.

Can I add or show another column in the Cable Manager, Specifically Translatable Data 1 (#COM_TZ_1_L1)? I have some cables that were added at the beginning of the project and some that were assigned in the schematic.. They all use the same cable part number, and all go from the same origin/destinations.

The company I'm at will be switching most of its CAD over to PTC products (i.e. Creo) and I have been looking into our options for electrical CAD. I had not been able to find much info on compatibility between Creo/Windchill and SWE or a suitable alternative in the PTC software suite. However, my manager recently came across elecworks for PTC Creo ... which looks exactly like SWE. After some searching we found out that SWE was originally a white-labeled elecworks.

Customize property field names Example: In the project properties I'd like to use the "Contract number" field because it can be filtered in the project manager. The problem is, I want it to be called "Machine Type" for example.

I assigned a MFG pn to a bunch of cables. Then I changed some of the data in that MFG pn. The new info doesn't reflect in the existing cables. How do I reassign the MFG?

So I still have the problem of random project folders just disappearing (it happened again, with the reconstructed version of the last one it happened to). But now I also have a recent project that didn't disappear, but four of the seven pages in it give an error message when I try to open them: "...Cannot open file. File is probably opened by another application." Then it offers me three choices: Rebuild, Delete and Rebuild, or Do Nothing.

We've got some assemblies that after upgrading to 2018, most of the 3D models of parts in the assembly have disassociated from their components in the component tree. Seemingly no rhyme or reason to why this happened. Only very few assemblies did this data loss occur.

If I have a part with multiple symbols, say a pcb or a connector, and I have associated them together, how do I show where all the fragments of the component are? On my interconnect, I insert "dummy" panel mount connectors (which have no connection points), and I associate them to the panel mount connectors J1 and J5 in their appropriate location boxes. That way I get the tag, signal name and mating part number reference.

So I used the awesome, new Dynamic Connector tool and placed a plug on my schematic. It is a 46 pin plug and I only used one pin, so the dynamic symbol is quite small (very tidy, I like it!) I later realized I need to add another wire/pin to that plug on that schematic. How do I add another wire to this plug?

I would like to know if Solidworks Electrical can create wire loom diagrams? if yes, could someone please send me an example or screenshot. I've got an example of what is needed but would like to know if it is possible to do in the Electrical side of solidworks, and perhaps an example or video on how to create
