Click to view contentThis is beginning to drive me crazy.  When I switch between named views my model will center in the window as it should.  When I click to start a sketch or created a feature Solidworks is not centering my model in the window.  Solidworks throws it to some random place on the screen.  In this pic I selected a feature and choose edit sketch.  When I… (Show more)

My company makes packaging equipment, and several of our customers are starting to model up their whole production lines in 3D and have started asking us for models of the equipment we provide them.   I'm curious to know how you handle this. Do you just export a step file of the full assembly with all the detail? Do you simplify it first, and… (Show more)

Our company is looking to possibly switch from NX11 to Solidworks.  We primarily use the modeling package and sheetmetal packages as we make commercial restaurant equipment.  So 90% of our designer's time is spent in the sheetmetal world.  NX is very good with sheetmetal but still has corner condition issues but overall we like the software.  It… (Show more)

Is there a way to use selection filters the following way?   I desire to select all the edges in a graphic region, that are co-linear to the X or Y or Z axis.   So say the part is a flat piece of sheet metal. How do I select all of the vertical edges only?

Click to view contentHello everyone - hope you're having a wonderful day.   My co-worker and I are both experiencing issues with lagging when adding text to SW drawings.    I checked out https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/219864 which is similar, but not quite what I'm experiencing. We also have not had issues with our graphics cards.   For example, when I type… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi all.   Back to my RC fuselage.  Thinking of doing a different skin for the outer fuselage.  So I draw outside of the Lofted surface already created previously.  The guide curve is a pain but I managed to move it so that the lofter surface can be seen. Great.  Added the first guide curves on the front and no problem.  As soon as I added the… (Show more)
