Click to view contentHello,   I have imported an assembly and it does not give me the option to float the assembly when I right click on it. I went to the customization menu to check if the option was unselected and the option in customization didn't show up for it either.   These problem solving methods work for all my other components. Just not the imported… (Show more)

The best enhancement in SOLIDWORKS 2020 is the one that require no training or reading. You simply upgrade the software and your life changes. This is what users of large assemblies will experience once they upgrade to SOLIDWORKS 2020.   You know who else would be extremely happy? Their CAD Administrator! And this is why:… (Show more)

Such as if the curve increases, 'X' maintains a minimum distance of say 10mm from the curve, and 'Y' increases in increments of say 5mm to be as close to the curve as possible within the… (Show more)

Click to view contentI've been working on this assembly file. I recently realized that the instruction I was following has me adding the sheet metal portion while in the Assembly mode. The sheet metal is not a separate file it seems. Don't see any way to mate them later ? So my questions are: 1. how is this an assembly file and how with one be able to remove or… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello all, I am editing a sub-assembly in a main assembly and for some reason SW selects the edges through the faces of the objects I am trying to move. I am unable to select the faces of objects I want to move. None of the parts in the sub assembly are transparent. Below you will find a picture about what I am talking about.     Please help… (Show more)

Click to view contentSolidworks 2016 SP5 on Win10 64 Bit   Has anyone experienced a instance of a derived component pattern changing itself to a different config other than the seed component on its own?   I and other users here have seen this multiple times lately.  In my screenshot below, I know for a fact that I did not change this screw.  I had no reason to at… (Show more)
