Is there a way to add a saved table template to the insert -> table menu?  I'd like to avoid having to browse and select the table everytime I want to add the table (which I do quite often).  Any help is greatly appreciated!

Good morning all, I know this question has been asked previously, but it has been 7 years, surely something has changed. Essentially what I am trying to do is to take a assembly, and convert it to a 3D DXF file. My end goal, is to take an assembly and convert it to 3D DXF, with only centerlines on the parts of the model, then take that centerline… (Show more)

Hi I find it difficult to identity drawing errors after I create a part.  I often get an warning that something is wrong with a part and the warning says that I can identify the error because the line that has the error is dashed and in some color value that makes it stand out. I never see any dashed or colored lines.

Hello All,   I've just upgraded from 2017SP5 to 2018SP5 and I've been tasked with re-mastering our Part, Assembly, Drawing and a few specialty templates to avoid Jim Sculley's Crusty Old Template File Gotcha . Fun Times.   At any rate I've modified several Drawing Templates in the past but I've never had to scratch build one from SW's Anemic… (Show more)

Hi Guys. I have an occasional issue with my drawings, causing a little strife on the shop floor. I have a drawing detailing several items from the same part, one item shows the hidden line font as dashed, but in another item the hidden line font APPEARS as the stitch font, even though the line style is set to dashed. Any help would be much… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi,  In SolidWorks, if we hide the solid body and made any surface body visible then the MBD Dimensions toolbar gets disable as shown in given fig.  If anyone knows, please tell me how to attach the GD&T label (like feature control frame, linear dimensions, etc.) to this surface body?   Thanks and Regards,  Mahadev

Why locking the angle dimension won't work - - I need dimension to change with each configuration - The dim value isn't changing during the flips.  If its value is 60 degrees before flip, the part visually goes around center point exactly 60 degrees.  After flip the dimension still says 60 degrees (so I believe lock won't work), but it's like… (Show more)

Hi, When I detail parts I always want to see the drawing in fractions of an inch, or in three decimals places.  Now I have to constantly go to Options, Document Properties and make the changes I want for each drawing.  Is there a way to customize Solidworks so I am always in the Option environment I want instead of constantly opening up… (Show more)

I am bringing in a larger assembly to a drawing, and I need to export it as a .dxf to send to RISA3D. When I auto add centerlines, some show up properly, others show up along the sides of my parts, and not the center. What can I do to fix this? Thanks.
