Do you see any difference between Split Line Intersection and Tool Intersection Curve?

Every once in a while, a question comes up on the forum or through other paths about the orientation of the global coordinate system and related view triad in SolidWorks. Users wonder why the Y-axis is pointing up and X-Z represents the top plane or table top when looking down from the top, while in some other CAD or CAM systems they may have… (Show more)

I just had my work computer completely rebuilt and now I'm seeing a weird behavior in Solidworks that I can't figure out how to fix. I've googled quite a bit and I'm at a loss.   Formerly, clicking on "Move/Rotate Component" in an Assembly would automatically surface the menu for that function to the top on the left of the screen. After… (Show more)

I can't seem to get the viewport to lock the rotation around the vertical axis. I often use the hot keys to quickly rotate the model scene around in a locked axis but can never seem to get this valuable function to work at all for the vertical "Rotate about scene floor". Probably user error but don't know what i'm doing wrong.   Thanks! - JD

When editing the dimension of a part in sketch mode I see delays which I do not see when editing dimension of the same part not in sketch mode. It often takes time of 1 second or more before the dimension edit box pops up   I also see  a clear delay before the dimension edit box pops up while adding dimensions in sketching.   I use a Nvidia… (Show more)

Hi. I'm a relatively novice SW Pro 2018 user.   I'm trying to find a way to configure a relatively new - supposedly high-performance laptop to render screens as quickly as a desktop PC we have which is about five years old. The laptop's sluggishness appears to be much more pronounced when rotating the front plane so it's parallel with the screen,… (Show more)

There are many different ways to manipulate the model view in SolidWorks. This blog post will attempt to put most (all?) of the methods into one document for reference and describe a bit of history as to why some commands work as they do. Maybe you will discover some methods you didn't know existed before.   Mouse Manipulation This is perhaps… (Show more)

Hello,   Today, when I started solidworks and opened a part, something new came up. A small simbol in the center of the canvas (check the attachment), and the part kept slowly dropping by itself. It´s possible to work on it (adding features, or mates if your in an assembly, where you also verify this problem), but the model keeps dropping.   Can… (Show more)
