We have been using routing for 10+ years now in plant design. In my opinion this is an add-on that SW started and has flat-ined in advancements. What are everyone elses thoughts?

When you mirror a component in an assembly, is there any way to have the features before the mirror stay linked to the parent, but the features created on the parent after the mirror be unique? For example (brace yourself), if I have part1 with 3 features, and I mirror that to create part2, can I create a unique 4th feature on part1 and have it not appear on part2 while still propagating changes to the first 3 features? ,mirror_components

As per the picture except instead of choosing a predetermined configuration, a fillable field(s) that is used to dimension the part. For example: For this part, a field that specifies hole diameter instead of choosing one from the list.

Issues with graphics when mating? Hey everyone, I took a look through the existing articles, but couldn't see anyone who had experienced this problem. It's not actually me, but a coworker of mine.

I'm trying to complete a weldment sketch but when I try to pull a dimension on the construction line at the bottom, it gives me this error message and won't let me change it. How does this happen ? Anybody have the answer ?

Im putting together an assembly and for some reason one of my plates wont hold its position once it's vertically mated. What happens is I add two mates to hold a plates position left to right and front to back, but as soon as I go to add a vertical mate to fully define the plate it nudges itself up, no error or anything. When I hit rebuild or try to move that part down back into position it will either drop down to where I want it and throw an error or keep its position and throw an error.

i have a design question regarding the height of embossed logo in plastic part. I have never done that so I am looking for some guidelines or shared experience on the height of the feature. Also, do I fillet the any of the edges? The overall dimensions of the wordmark logo are 35mm by 5.5mm.

We have a problem and we cant figure it out. It did work correct in SW 2017 and previous versions, but is doesnt in SW2018. We have a cut list property which evaluates to the length of the profile.

I have just created a section of a machine frame as a weldment.This frame will be bolted to a mirror versionof itself. (ie. Themain frame consists of two welded frames which are boltedtogether.)I created an assembly inserted the "rear frame"then I mirrored the "rear frame" from the assemblyenvironmentand specified the "front frame" as a new partwith its own part number / file name.My problem arises when itcomes to creating a drawing of the "front frame". I amunable to insert a weldmentcut list

I am attempting to make an extruded cut within an assembly. I used the same process as I used the previous hundred times: sketch on plane, select direction and components to cut. The preview looks fine and there are no errors. The cut simply does not happen.

I want to use a surface in context of my assembly to cut a face on a part; that much I can do if I edit the part in context of the assembly and knit or use 0 offset method to catch the surface (then split using the surface). I find if I lock it, then break all external references it seems to hold ok if I switch configs back and forth in my main asm (even if I turn off the part that was used to generate the surface). However, if I edit the part and back up before the surface-cut feature was added

Hi, I'm trying to mate a half bended circular rod to the edge of a frame made of two angle bars. I like to mate the rod right on the edge of the top bar with the bottom end of the rod to another frame bar at a distance from the base. Each time I mate them, it'll be stuck at an odd angle and seems to be locked to the parts.

I'm trying to source a macro that will locate the centre of mass/gravity of all components within an assembly relative to a specific point (i.e. the assembly origin) and export this information to an excel file. I realise this has been brought up on several other forums but as yet there doesn't seem to be a solution. Effectively I'm trying to incorporate the parametric capabilities of solidworks to iteratively optimise the structural configuration of a concentric shaft/bearing arrangement.
