I have a model assembly with approximately 10 sub-assemblies that each contain simple parts with extrusion lengths that are variable. When I say the part lengths are variable, they can be either top assembly ( Multiple configurations) or sub-assembly configurations dependent OR top level custom property input (via Property Tab Builder menu).

Hello, I have an issue that I can't find any forum topics on. The situation: I have an assembly open, and I want to insert a part. I launch the "Insert Part" dialog box and choose the part to insert, then hover my cursor where I want to part to roughly be dropped. The problem is that I cannot figure out how to just drop the part without it automatically mating where I click the cursor.

We have 3 Seats of SW 2008 and we are all experiencing the same problem when zooming. If the centre mouse wheel is depressed, either deliberately or inadvertently, causing the assembly to rotate as it is zoomed, ocassionally this causes the entire assembly model to fly off the screen.

My question is as follows. Is it recommendable the use of Global Variables and the use of Master Sketches at the same time? I've got an assembly which I control with the use of Global Variables and Configurations, which change the overall dimensions of a 3D Master Sketch. Some of the features of the parts (like the overall size) are driven by this 3D Master sketch and other 2D Master Sketches in the assembly and the rest of the features (like thickness) are driven by the global variables in the

I'm trying to figure out how to be able to toggle between display states that I have set up with a part from within the assembly (which has the particular part in it). For example, I have a part setup with one config but two different display states. In an assembly, I have this part along with two other parts. But within the assembly, all the colors appear with the first display state assignments.

Blocks group sketch entities and dimensions together so that they move as one in a sketch. Together with a layout sketch, you can go directly from an assembly sketch to the full assembly. Create, edit and save blocks. Create a layout sketch of an assembly using blocks. Build assembly components based on the existing blocks.

When I picked a part in the graphics window, it use to jump to the part in the feature tree... now it only jumps to the assembly the part is in. I think I changed a setting but now I can't find the setting to change it back. Can anyone help me out?

In an assembly, I open a part, modify it, save is as a copy with a different name, and when I click close, it naturally asks me if I want to save the changes to the original part, I click no, but when it takes me back to the assembly, the part is modified... I believe this was an issue long ago, and it was fixed few years ago... Or am I losing my mind here? SP1.0 hasn't fixed it.

Pretty much anything I do, results in that window. The window itself is not the problem, but the time wasted while SW is processing a function. I am well aware that some commands takes longer than other, and I often work with some quite large assemblies - but it also happens on parts, drawings and smaller assemblies.

I am using 2018 SP4. I have been working in an assembly adding components in different configurations and such and this morning after several days of working I see a new icon show up in the configuration list. Everything seems to be working fine and I have saved the model both with the configuration active and not active but the icon is still there. I did not find a reference to it inJim Wilkinson's stickied FAQ either.

Has anyone experienced a instance of a derived component pattern changing itself to a different config other than the seed component on its own? I and other users here have seen this multiple times lately. In my screenshot below, I know for a fact that I did not change this screw.

I have been having a few problems with adding chamfers to components within assemblies, when dealing with a chamfer on a part at for example 30 degrees you have a 50:50 chance of the dimension being in the correct direction, normally this isn’t an issue as you can click the little pink arrow or use the “Flip direction” checkbox under “Chamfer Parameters” but every so often that doesn’t have any influence over the direction of the angle that the chamfer cuts into the part. The preview updates

Am I thinking of one of the other CADD packages I have worked on??? I thought we (SolidWorks pilots) use to be able to change the color of just selected faces of a component when in an assembly.

Currently, it appears that when you drag and drop the first part into an assembly, it is always fixed in position. Is there an option to leaving this assembly component floating by default? Around here we always float this component, then add a coincident mate with align axies checked to align the first part to the assembly origin. This lets all of the parts in the feature manager tree of the assembly have the first numbers of their part number in-line.

I was wondering if there were a way to save my display states when saving to 3D PDF. As far as I can tell there doesn't seem to be an option for this when saving and in the 3D PDF there also doesn't seem to be an option to switch display states. Which leads me to believe that the SW just saves whichever display state/configuration you have selected at the time of saving to the 3D PDF. Am I missing something?

I am struggling with a problem for quite a long time. I have a system in which there is a Double Hydraulic Cylinder and my goal is to have stems A and B entering their respective cylinder at the same time when I rotate my body (not present in the image for simplicity) around point 1. Could you please give me a hint on how to conjugate these two mates?

mirror component Thank you for your answer but the problem is if i will increase the instances from the component pattern feature ,the mirror does not create the new component , and must to rebuilt the mirror component feature, but if i will to decrease the instances from the component pattern feature there is not any problem ,the problem is only when i make increase.
