I just started a new job and I am taking over a project where the designer used multi-body parts instead of an assembly for a plastic enclosure. In the assembly that includes the multibody enclosure part there is also a routing part. I need to mate the routing part to a different position. I was able to do this using Move components and smart mates however I made a change I couldn't revert so I had to close and lose that information.

My company is going to switch to the CAM package in SW2018, currently we use NX. I've been trying to make a simple flat panel with 12 1" diameter holes. I'm setting up the tool crib w/ a 1/4" 4 flute end mill. When I run the simulation, it seems to work perfectly.

Currently I've been tasked with converting all our solidworks drawings to pdf's so i can hyperlink them to our excel standards index (we're making pdf's so people without solidworks can reference). Should be an easy task for task scheduler to export all dwg's within the folder to pdfs for this purpose. Now this is my first time using task scheduler so i don't know all the nitty gritty details, but it seems like it should be a fairly cut and dry situation. Everytime i run it, though, it shows

This is an issue I have constantly and am looking for ways to fix it. If I use Toolbox parts in an assembly, and then later move the assembly to another folder or use pack-and-go, often the sizes of those parts will magically change, forcing me to remove them all and replace them. I know I can save the toolbox part under a new name somewhere then use sldsetdocprop to remove the toolbox link, but there must be a simpler, quicker way to do this. I don't mind keeping the link to the toolbox, just

I'm having trouble with 2d part overlaps after upgrading to 2018 SP4. My relay symbols are supposed to nest together at the tab, but one will block out part of the next one, see picture. I was able to fix this problem in 2016, but cannot remember how I got these to not cover each other before.
