Click to view contentHello there,    I am relative new to design tables in Solidworks so please excuse my ignorance. I will try to breakdown everything so I can make my question as clear as possible.    Background: We have different configurations that have different part numbers/names and dimensions. So one product would have a 3D model number, 2D drawing number… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi all   Here's the problem.   I have one part with several different configurations. due to this part being a module in a greater modular assembly system. In the drawing of this part, I've made a reference to the configuration name, placed in the title block. I'm trying to accomplish that for every sheet in the drawing, I can have a… (Show more)

Click to view contentIs it possible to have one pipe file with a design table that contains multiple configurations of pipe diameters and lengths and you can easily switch between pipe diameters while keeping the same length?     I was trying to implement this with a design table and I tried to use derived configurations. 1. I initially tried to include each pipe… (Show more)

Excel design table locks up SolidWorks after closing.  Excel closes, but then all menus will not respond.  It does not always happen, but about 75-80% of the time it does.  Thoughts?

I have an assembly with a linear component pattern. It's configured for different types, and for each type I'm using derived configurations for lengths. The instance count of the linear component pattern is different for each length. This assembly is then placed into an assembly at a higher level, and everything is fine until I close the model.… (Show more)

Hello,   I have recently started using design for the first time on my computer. I have successfully been able to set up a design table for a part and create several different configurations. However, once I have exited the design table I am unable to get back into it. I go to the configurations tab, right click on design table, select "Edit… (Show more)

Why does SW always create a first instance when I insert a design table into a part that already has configs?  I've been deleting this instance from my configs, is this a problem?

Click to view contentGood morning everyone! I don't know if anybody has ever seen/ had this kind of problem, so I'm open to any suggestion. I'm used to create multiple configurations for parts on the design table, and whenever I need to detail those dimensions on a drawing, a make a separate table inside the excel, just so it has a better layout, linking the values… (Show more)
