     I am having a bit of trouble with using the equations in solidworks. The way that I know to use equations is to create a global variable, and then assigning that variable to something like the length of a line. Lets say I have created the variable "B" and assigned the value to be 40mm. Then I smart dimension a line and try to add the… (Show more)

How do you get Dassault to address the 4k UI issues?   There are a few posts about issues with the scaling and it seems that they won't be fixed until 2017 SPxx. It all seems fascial when the reason given for UI re-hash was to cater for 4k monitors. Posts have been put about to try and solve the issues but most fall short. The problem with the… (Show more)

    We also have Autodesk Inventor professional and mouse milage is lower than in SW. Solidworks forces you to go in the tree where IV allows more actions close to the mouse cursor.

These are custom materials created in an earlier version of SolidWorks. If I edit an existing SolidWorks 2018 appearance & save as a custom appearance then the icon appears correct. Is… (Show more)

Why don't they put tabs on the bottom of SolidWorks to make switching between files easier. I know you can use Cascade or Tile windows to switch between files. But they take up too much space on the desktop. If there were tabs on the bottom, you could see all the files you have open instead of having highlight File then move over to Window and… (Show more)

my ctrl+z and my ctrl+y doesn't work on solidworks 2016 edition but works on everything else, the z key works and the y key works and the ctrl key works, just not together. I can undo an redo manually by going to the edit tab and clicking it but that's annoying when i have to undo thirty things so i was wondering if someone had a fix for this?
