Hey everyone, I took a look through the existing articles, but couldn't see anyone who had experienced this problem. It's not actually me, but a coworker of mine.   When attempting to mate, his graphics blur horribly and it becomes extremely difficult to see where the face ends/starts, etc. His graphics card is better than the one that's on my… (Show more)

Convincing a company to invest in better and newer technology is always a challenge for designers.   Is there any way I can record the loading times and non-productive times (i.e. when SW is switching configurations, opening files, rebuilding...etc.) in SW?   I can use this data to show management that it is worth investing in better systems.… (Show more)

Ok, I've been an idiot. I've not noticed the difference between FORM tools and FORMING tools. I'm familiar with FORMING tools. It appears there is something else called a FORM tool, which doesn't seem to be documented very well, as it applied to the differences/similarities or why they have two things that have such similar names. Is this a case… (Show more)

I'm having problems shelling this model. I keep getting the shown error message. I'm not sure where exactly the problem is coming from. I'm sure someone here will be able to figure it out. Thank you . Frank

I designed the first hit tooling in Solidworks and generally on a part like this, I take the initial hit tooling and carve out a section of the tool to modify, in order to produce the second tooling.   In the attached example, the first stamping will produce a LH and RH part, these are cut apart and then moved to a secondary operation. (I will… (Show more)

With SW2016, I opened a STEP file assembly from an enclosure manufacturer, and one of the included parts has a couple of Check Entity warnings.  The part has no features, it was just imported as a single entity.  https://www.okwenclosures.com/en/media/sec/static/models-3d/00016107.step?psku=B6505229 (You need to register with them to download.)  [… (Show more)

I'm curious what everyone does to get their handrail cut lists to be accurate. I found the most accurate way to get your lengths is to have your sketch lines off center of the pipe it's being coped to. I personally use 5/8" off center for 1 1/2" pipe for a 5/16" cope on hand rail. I've played around with just using the weld gap feature and found… (Show more)

I know I can configure the dims for hole locations using Hole Wizard, but can I configure the number of holes?  Similar to how you can turn on and off different sketch entities if I were using the simple extrude cut feature.

Hi, I'm new to SolidWorks. Just started my training yesterday. I'm a mobile phone designer, usually using Rhino, Catia V5, or AliasStudioTools to generate 3D files. I'm trying to replicate the technique I learned in Catia to build an iphone8-like smartphone. I'm trying to use the Stitch command to join/combine separate adjacent surfaces into a… (Show more)
