This is an assembly file with no assembly in graphic area . Is it possible to make appear New Part file in the FM Design Tree (without using any origin plane) when assembly file is empty? I think you'll need a plane or face to attach it to.

Once I have created my model then apply the material, my model briefly shows the color and texture of the material chosen but then reverts to white (default) and even though in the apprearance manager for the attached part it shows satin finish stainless steel, it still shows white. There must be a setting somewhere that I haven't found yet and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. How do I get rid of the white and have the part take on the material appearance?

Is there a way to keep the relations when using hole wizard? When I place the holes and use the dotted line which is visible for Hor & Vert relations they are not set. I have to go back and manually set them. I do have the box ticked in settings but it does not seem to work with hole wizard.

Ok, reference the pictures below and the SW 2017 SP5 part that is attached. I am trying to move the face (offset) 0.2mm outward and it doesn't include all the geometry. But at 0.25mm, the geometry is included. In fact, I have found the sweet spot to be somewhere between 0.21mm and 0.22mm, as at 0.21mm, the geometry is skipped, but at 0.22mm, it is included again.

How to model a convex shaped cone in sheet metal? SWX cannot flatten this. You might be able to get some kind of lofted bend, but those types of features in sheet metal do not necessarily give you an accurate flat pattern.

Ok, I've been an idiot. I've not noticed the difference betweenFORMtools andFORMINGtools. I'm familiar with FORMING tools. It appears there is something else called a FORM tool, which doesn't seem to be documented very well, as it applied to the differences/similarities or why they have two things that have such similar names.

Hi! I've got an assembly I'm working on that started crashing my SW2016 a couple days ago whenever I tried to open it. I'd had an issue where most of the references got updated somehow, in this assembly and a sister one that shares many of the same part files, and I had to go back through and redirect each part reference to come from our server instead of the folder on my desktop I had it in. The assemblies are all set now, fully defined and everything, but whenever I try to open either of these

I'm modelling up a play unit and need to pattern a lug along a piece of steel work. It's curved and shaped and I'd like the lug to follow the sketch, but remain tangent to it. The lug is remaining in it's original position though and not sweeping along with the curve around the model.

In a assembly is one sketch with to circles. The circles are referenced to the holes in the part (solid body with only one volume imported). After moving the two holes in the part (move surfaces) the sketch in the assemby didn't get this change.
