When i save a SW drawing to dwg format i get the title block and drawing borders on to Autocad model space. As you know, this is leads to scale problems if the model views in SW are not in 1:1 scale. Ideally i would like to save my SW drawing in .dwg format and then get the model in AC's model space and title blovk and border in AC Layout along… (Show more)

This may not really be a Solidworks issue, but I'm having zero luck finding an answer from the Adobe forums.   I've some 3d pdf files.  Smaller ones of only a few kb open fine.  Larger ones, in this case about 1.7Mb crash upon opening.    I've reloaded the Adobe software, and made some changes to its configuration settings, but at the moment I… (Show more)

Assemble parts in automated tool. 3. Save Assemblies from tool as STEP files. 4. Convert Assemblies back to SLDASM from STEP. 5. Insert Converted Assemblies into template… (Show more)

If I click ok it then creates the file, but with a missing surface(s). Basically I am designing a wind turbine blade and it is to be analysed so for that, I need it in IGES form. But the whole airfoil part seems to be… (Show more)

Click to view contentGood morning all,   Have been using #TASK for a while now and its helped me massively, however I'm running into an issue with only 1 of my models (with numerous configurations) in which I cant export 3D PDF's... The program Creates 3 or 4 and then comes up with this error message;     I have sued the exact same process for 6 other models… (Show more)
