As a many year designer of food processing equipment we are planning to start eliminating all lock washers and most flat washers from our designs. This is to improve sanitation of our machines, as well as customer requests. There are also studies that demonstrate that lock washers actually cause fasteners to loosen more easily. What has… Show more

Currently using PDM Pro 2017. Can't get pictures to open in Photos to allow easier scrolling/ viewing they want to open in Paint. Checked all my Windows settings they are defaulted to Photos. From my understanding this is a known issue. Has this issue been resolved in 2019?
Hello My Lenovo P51 with Solidworks 2019 suddenly died a week ago and on-site warranty has been terrible experience. Sent someone without much experience and he ordered new SSD after changing motherboard failed to solve the problem but not sure it can be fixed in coming days.

Hi I have got a model of the lumen of an artery, so the faces are many and in many shapes. Does anyone have any good idea of how i create the vessel walls around it? It is only supposed to be a solid, yet hollow solid, that surrounds the artery lumen, and the thickness should be 2 mm. The idea is that the model that i have got is supposed to… Show more
I would like a macro that I can assign to a hotkey that allows me to select components in multiple drawing views and have them changed to a pre-specified line weight (for only those views). Basically 1. Select component(s). 2. Right click and hit COMPONENT LINE FONT. 3. Pick FROM SELECTION. 4. Pick a line font. The above steps would be in… Show more
We have a few thaousands of drawings in which all descriptions have been generated by calling out a PRP in the "value/text Expression" colume in order to get the final text in the "evaluated value" column eg: typing $PRP:"SW-File Name", $PRPSHEET:"Material" in the Value text expression column results in : 1000001, ASTM A36 Steel in the… Show more

We are, sadly, using PDM Standard, not PDM Pro. In our workflow, when a drawing is released, a PDF is automatically created, named with the Rev in its filename and placed in a 'PDF' folder, where procurement can see it. When a drawing is changed, its revision changes, and on release, another PDF is created, with the new rev in the filename. So… Show more
John, if I understand well the issue is that you not always can move the PDF file to another folder, yes? If you note some announcemenet like "you do not have permission", take a look if you don't have active preview tab while you select the PDF file? If it is, let's change it to other, like version tab. In the preview tab file is loaded in…
I have heard that it is possible to set up a dedicated task host that can process file conversions or file printing "invisibly". Meaning that the application runs at a sub level on the machine and does not require graphics processing. This lets the task run more efficiently. We would like to setup a virtual machine on our network as a dedicated… Show more
Yes Fabio, many of our custorem are using only virutal machines as task hosts and it works fine. Including conversion of their very heavy projects or more complex custom tasks. I suggest to create a virtual machine before you start to looking for dedicated machine with certified datacard. Let's test it for some of you projects and the you can…

I am needing to find all drawings that contain a NULL value for the property Part Number. This does not seem to work: And It seems to ignore the variable criteria. BTW, Part Number is a text field. I could also use the Revision property, which is an integer, but there is still not a way to find just the BLANK values. Thank you.
