Hi All, Stumped on this one.  Seems like a simple enough move but I'm getting 2 different resutls.  I added a simple BOM to my assembly drawing the other day which showed the bolts correctly with the size (attachment OLD BOM).  I lost the drawing for some reason so made a new drawing and everything appears the same except the hardware now shows… (Show more)

It's very… (Show more)

On our drawing we have a series of drawing blocks, which include 3rd angle projection, revision history and multiple more.

Click to view contentI am trying to either Boundary Cut or Loft Cut two surfaces; a somewhat tapered cylinder, into a curved edge.  I have tried both Lofted and Boundary Cut without any success.  It is the triangular portions on both sides (see below) that I am trying to blend all together.   Can someone guide me as to how to get the expected result?  Thanks.

I use Solidworks to do custom wood cabinets and some furniture. Each piece is unique and we don't have any cookie cutter type cabinetry. I need a good way to get a cut list from a drawing. So far, we are drawing our cabinets as a multi-body part, then using a bounding box with a weldment cut list to get our shop cut list. This works ok, but there… (Show more)

I have assembly which has about 10 different drawings of the assembly itself & some for sub assemblies. I can not make single drawing. Now I want to pack & go with all parts, assemblies & drawings, but I can't do this. I have to open each drawing & do the PnG individually which is time consuming. Is there a way to do this in single PnG command?
