I am trying to add gravity in a static simulation for an assembly. After I select the reference plane and click okay, a "Select Entity" window appears. Has this problem happened to anyone else? Is there a work around?
We use gravity on assemblies all the time and I don't see this behavior. What ver/SP are you using? Pro, premium?
I am using 2015-2016. De-Selecting "Show Preview", solved my issue!
I am still seeing the same behavior in 2017 sp3. Glad I saw your post though.
The symptoms described are similar to the following known issue:
SPR 724407 - "*model specific* Cannot select reference for gravity or centrifugal load when preview symbol is shown. Showing existing gravity load invalidates it"Note: Model specific. Works OK if gravity symbol is disabled. Behavior OK if component external references are locked
This issue appears to be quite rare, and is model specific - likely related to certain external references on the CAD side. Please contact your SOLIDWORKS Value Added Reseller (VAR) to have the issue reported to SOLIDWORKS Technical Support for investigation. This way, we can make sure that the SOLIDWORKS R&D team can correct the issue in future releases.
can you share us the error image, so that we can help you out.
