This year was an unusual one for me on many fronts. Due to a number of concurrent events in my professional life my focus was quite different this year from the previous three. My focus this year was more on my own career and skillset, along with supporting SWUGN, EKGAR, etc. The previous three years I was concerned with absorbing as much… Show more
I downloaded this SketchUp file mars curiosity rover obj | 3D Warehouse and converted it using SketchUp - export function to dwg format. However, when I try to import it in Solidworks 2012, the process is so slow that it is impractical. Solidworks creates an enormous number of files. Finally I abandoned the conversion. I succeed in exporting and… Show more

Why would SW in their infinite wisdom have this as a restriction. I have a large machine that I have drawn a few details off of one of the views. Now I would like to crop that view to fit the paper size. For some stupid reason SW does not allow you to do this. I know there is some sort of work around, but why should there be.
