The issue I have when creating an assembly drawing is that the bill of material shows each half as a separate item number, each quantity 1. In this particular case just editing the quantities in the BOM, is a reasonable enough workaround.

I created a drawing from the weldment and on a separate sheet create my detail views of the parts that need to be modified before welding. I even created the part separately and inserted that part into my weldment as a body and still when I try to create the detail view it is angled.

I finally figured it out - I remember this from a What's New 2016 and remember it being really tricky and stupid but I dug through some old youtube videos and re-discovered it. This can be very un-intuitive because the pop-up doesn't actually have the subassembly name. It's kinda weird how they are named in the pop.

I don't know what setting has been changed (if any at all) but whenever I insert a centreline or note they are now black in colour (were previously grey). Yes I have the "Set Next Line Color" setting on but I've found that the Default checkbox remains unchecked even after I check it.

When creating a drawing view with the display style 'shaded' I sometimes find the drawing view switching to 'shaded with edges' while only 'shaded' is still active. This mostly happens when rebuilding the drawing or when re-opening the drawing. - switching to 'use software OpenGL' under system options>performance.

To explain, I am sheeting up a template for the way we handle sheetmetal parts. the first sheet is the iso drawing with all the dimensions and whatnot; the second sheet is the bend locations, and the third sheet is the flat pattern to be sent to the cutter. The third sheet doesn't have a border and is nothing that will be seen by my fabricators so having sending two drawings out with 2 or3on the bottom is begging for questions.

I have a logo in my sheet format that appears corrupted every time I open a file again. It does not happen initially with a new drawing though. It happens with both part and assembly drawings, but it is an issue that just started today after weeks of it working fine. I can fix it momentarily by going through properties and reattaching the sheet format, but the next time the file opens, it is corrupted.

Drawing Dimensions keep detaching (Clamp Collar) Ok I have a clamp collar style detail and when I dimension it all is good, except every time I do anything to the model, section line etc, all my dimensions detach from the section view?

I did an assembly and applied constrained angle on rotation on the lever. Now, my problem is. I do not know how to constraint the slotted plate and the Lever. So that, when the lead screw assembly moves forward the other side of the slot on the plate touches the Lever and then will move up to the angle given which is 22.5°.

i looked in the SW help files and online and can't find a reference to this. to create an offset section, you create your section sketch, project it, and all works fine. i guess I figured it out. apparently the vertical lines in my section sketch need to be construction geometry to not show. this seems strange to even be an option as I can't think of a reason why i'd ever want a view that is appearing as I first outlined.

In SolidWorks 2014, the XY dimensions were attached to the center of the foreshortened radius dimension, meaning the XY dimensions and the radius dimension are all foreshortened; However, after I upgraded the software to SolidWorks 2017 and opened the same drawing that was previously saved using SolidWorks 2014, the XY dimensions are referring to the "actual" center location of the radius while the radius dimension is still in a foreshortened display format. How do I change the display format of

Our company is currently looking to streamline our process of making BOMs. Currently after a job is modeled/detailed in excel we manually enter part numbers, titles, quantities, and weights of all the parts in the top level assembly along with what sub assembly a part belongs to if any. We then have a seperate pages to type in all of the fasteners used both assembled in the shop and in the field. And on top of that we have more pages for buyout items, paint specs, total weight pages, and a dwg

there might be another way, but u could measure angle between centremark and that edhe, and then when u click centremark u can type that angle for it. I tried to use something like=RD7*Drawing View4to make it update with the changes in the design, but SW doesn't accept equations for this field.

I recieved a pdf from a vendor but when I open it it tells me: Cannot find or create the font 'Century Gothic', Some characters may not display or print correctly. I know the pdf originated from a Solidworks drawing. any suggestions? Additional information: I can open these same pdf's on a different computer with no issue.
