Click to view contentI found this when working on a drawing using SW2017 SP5.  The problem can be easily duplicated.  Below is an image of a drawing of a simple disk with four rectangular extruded cuts.  The rectangular faces are hatched using  the AEC Sand, AEC Stone, Concrete and Dots patterns respectively.  The red rectangle is sketch geometry in the drawing view. … (Show more)

Is it possible to make a weldment cutlist wich quickly shows if the profiles contains hole's and/or angles?   I would like to know if it's possible to make a cutlist with a column "hole" and a column "angle" wich will result "yes" if they are present in that profile, Is it possible for solidworks to reconize if there is a cut-extrude present.… (Show more)

Good evening everyone,   I am glad to be back on the solidworks train as I have been on Creo and Inventor the last two years struggling hard with bad interface and occluding items!   Anyway the reason I am writing this is because when I am creating a title block and saving the sheet as a .drwdot I can open and close it and save it but when I go… (Show more)

We just updated our drawing borders and drawing templates. When we create new content they work great. The question is on legacy drawings. If we open an old drawing, when can change to a new sheet and we see the new border. The problem lies in the document properties. They do not change at that point because we are changing the sheet and not the… (Show more)

Click to view contentI don't know how balloons work in SW. Like, I mean how exactly they figure out what text they're supposed to contain.   I do know that I've never been able to find any way to "get to" the same data that a balloon has, as far as always matching the BOM.   No matter what you do, subassemblies, whatever, as long as a view is linked to the BOM,… (Show more)

Hi,   In an assembly drawing, there are a few broken section views that I made a detail view of. In one of the detail views the hatch colour (black) doesn't match the layer colour (blue), though the rest of the detail views do.   When I try to change the colour manually to blue, it changes to the chosen colour, but it reverts back to black in a… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello there, I want to use two styles at the same time on the drawing page. Is this possible? The text and arrows will be adjusted to the desired scale. it's not just text. Is it possible to change the dimensions by simply changing the style? I add two styles, no problem. But only the text dimensions are changing, the arrows remain the same.… (Show more)

I have a sketch with lines, annotations and hatches. If I select all objects and try to change layer, the changes will be done on all objects except hatches. I have to select the hatches only to make the layer change to be effective on hatches. It looks like hatches don't want to be mixed with other objects. Does anyone have the same behaviour?… (Show more)

Our production office has asked for us to save all drawings as PDF as edrawings is consistently not reflecting the drawings to the point it cannot now be trusted.   Is there a macro that will simultaneously save the solidworks drawing and a pdf copy at the same time? I worry that if I make a revision but don't update the pdf due to distractions… (Show more)
