The company I work for is new to Solidworks so when I started
in April I found that the only templates they had were imported
from autocad and didn't link to custom properties. So at that time
I went about creating templates and sheet formats along with a
number of blocks for diffrent types of manufacturing processes such
as stamping with sheet thickness, material type, and inspection
standard number then one for plastics with material, nominal wall
thickness, color ect.
Well now 9 months later and I have learned more about what
information we need in the blocks so I am trying to update them. I
think it should be a simple process of insert the block, edit it
and resave either as the same or new file name. What happens though
is I edit the block, and rebuilt. While in the edit block command
everything looks fine, when I rebuild however edits to notes have
happened but if I moved a note it moves.
I thought this was an easy glitch to overcome by exploding the
block and remaking it so I did that. I bring in a block, explode
it, edit, recreate the block, save it over the old file and close
the drawing. Open a new drawing and insert the block. It turns out
that the block I just inserted is the original block again reborn.
Has anyone else had this trouble? If so have you managed to fix
I can tell you what I would do to solve your root problem. Create
sheet formats for what you want your title block/etc to look like.
Then, you can right click on "Sheet 1" select properties..., and
you can swap out all your sheet formats on the fly.
