I am getting tired of having to create an assembly with my flat head screws in order to iteratively design the width of the countersink on the hole. You would think that Solidworks would be smart enough to know what size to make the countersink so that the screw does not protrude from the part! I'm sure there have been thousands of SPR's about this, can we get something done?

I am trying to insert a slotted hole into two bodies. However I want the hole to be slotted, and become non-slotted when it reaches the second body. However when I try to do that, I do not see an option to do so.

I saved a part, then when I next opened it, it was rolled back to an early state with no rollback bar and a lot of suppressed features. I unsuppressed them, got errors, deleted everything that had errors, and started working again. So now the part is working ok, but I still have no rollback bar. What gives?

Re: Do you have any suggestions on how to model this cylindrical handle? There are some problems with your sketch not matching the pdf. I opened it, deleted some dimensions, added a horizontal construction line tangent with the arc, used the "Offset Entities" feature to add some lines to dimension to, and then added dimensions to fully define the sketch so the result would match the pdf.

I work in the automation department of a global company and I was recently called up by one of our maintenance guys (at some distant plant) to see if I could find a supplier for this part: The part is a globoidal cam. A sort of worm gear that causes the cog with bearings below it to turn 120 degrees when the cam turns 180 above it, then dwell for while the cam turns the other 180 degrees. (or at least I assume, I don't have the part yet).

Exploded View Issues When I make an exploded view and I have to modify positions later sometimes the parts will "bounce back" to their original position after modifying other stuff. If I edit an exploded step to add/remove features, other exploded steps move back to a previous position.

How to change the existing part model template (Default solidworks template) to the new template (customer provided environmental files) for already created model. If a customer has provided you with a native SolidWorks model file then this would have been created by using that customers template. Now, if you wanted to create a copy of that template but without the model, just delete everything in the feature tree and then save the file as a template and NOT as a part or assembly.

Does anybody already have a sketch setup to to generate a 4 arc ellipse from a the major and minor diameter? That looks like an actual ellipse. I think we're looking for a fake ellipse that would be a pain in the butt to create in SW:

I'm looking into the possibility of inserting a general table into a part document, and linking the cells to specific Custom Properties and/or Global Variables. I want the user to be able to change the values in this table and the linked variables/properties to update accordingly, without them having to go into the Equations manager or Custom Property window directly. I have linked the values for height, width and thickness to custom properties.

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.

I regularly use configurations when modeling through the RMB -> configure dimension command. My issue is the number of decimal places in the value field. The field currently shows only two decimal places and will round my values off.

Was going to give the new Structure System a test, and none of the weldment profiles show up. The "standard" list populates as should, but "type" and "size" doesn't pull anything from the folders. Working just fine in weldments.

You can't drive those directly because they are not really parameters as in the context of parametric modeling. That's a bad label in the user interface. Those numbers are driven by constraints and dimensions. Adding dimensions, dragging, etc. can move them all over the place.

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/
