When I create a shape using DraftSight, I use that shape and then import it into SolidWorks. When I do that, and convert the block of the shape, all the title block lines come in with it. Is there any way to avoid this?
When you import your files into SW, then you've the option to remove the entities you don't need to be imported in.
Also you can create a copy of the file in DS and remove all unwanted entities in DS itself. Then import the file into SW.
I have thought of the Copy and Paste method, but the problem occurs with that is we update shapes constantly and the associativity will be gone with that. I wasnt clear on the first post, sorry about that. When I bring in a shape I bring it in as a block and link it to file, so when the shape changes it will update in SW. So is there any way to get around this without making a copy of the shape or copy and pasting the shape. Sorry on my part.
Instead of Importing you can Copy and Paste from DraftSight into a SolidWorks Drawing or Part/ Sketch drawings
I have a brief explaination on this post (half waydown)
Also similar in this Forum Post
Anytime you create a block (2D sketch) either in DraftSight or SolidWorks (to use in Design Library) it will not automaticly update.
I would have thought that once you brought it into SolidWorks you would have created a model from that. Then generated a SW drawing & used that. You would then modify the model/ create configuration to suit future changes.
