So I've been playing around with the denoiser this morning and either I'm not using it correctly, my machine isn't powerful enough to notice a difference or it doesn't do what it's supposed to be doing for me. I have a Dell Precision 7710, 16GB RAM w/ Nvidia Quadro M3000M (4gb DDR5 VRAM). I've tested with the denoiser on and off both in the… Show more
I have an assembly consisting of 5 components, two of which are subassemblies. I have set the assembly to "large assembly mode" as well as resolving some of the components within the assembly to lightweight. When I go to "pattern driven component pattern" a tube part and link it to a punched hole pattern in sheet metal, SolidWorks crashes out… Show more

I am trying to do an extruded feature with an inward draft on a part I am modelling. but instead of the draft being at an angle I want it to be at a 65 degree radius. Is this possible or is there another tool which does something similar?
Good morning, I'm trying to adjust the number of decimal places in the "Measure" tool, but when I click on the "Units/Precision" button, the top part of the box gets cleared out, and I can't do anything else. I have to close the command and restart it to do anything. I have the units in the document properties set for 3 decimal places, but… Show more

What are your most impressive tricks of solidworks, Please spread this question to more people. It is better to list 5~10 tricks for others, we will accumulated more and more in future.
Hi Glenn That's a technique that I use also. I don't know if you noticed but I posted a question up yesterday about making a surface box. It works exactly the same way but I think the advantage comes in the multibody environment, where you don't have to care about merging or cutting features, as they blissfully ignore surfaces.
I found this article and peaked my curiosity. What's your go-to music while you work? Do you use a streaming service? What Do Engineers Listen to While They Work? | Design News
