Treehouse seems to be a useful tool to build an assembly-structure before starting constructing and designing. I want to use it, but I can't find it. Can anybody help me?
Hmmm ... it looks like the Labs site has been labotomised. When did that happen?
I have sent a mail to labsfeedback about this. I hope they'll reply......
It seems that the download link no longer works on the archive page.
Does any one have a copy of the install files?
You may also want to look at Hawkware Treeview. I haven't tried it yet but it sounds very similar (maybe even addresses some of the shortcomings of Treehouse?). http://www.hawkridgesys.com/products/hawkware/standard/
Otherwise, I did upload a copy of the files I have to the Central Virginia SolidWorks User Group page: https://forum.solidworks.com/groups/central-virginia-solidworks-user-group?view=documents
I don't know another way to put files on the forums. I think you have to join the user group on the forums to get to it (can be temporary though). Also, the moderators must approve the file, and that could take more than a day.
these Hawkware tools actually look to have even more functionality than the 3D labs Treeview. I will certainly give it a try.
Again: thanks a lot!!
Thanks a lot Brian,
I have joined your group & hope to see the upload released in the next couple of days.
Tree view is a great viewing package of an existing assembly. I wanted utlalize Tree house's tree creation funtions, even if it greats a set of blank assemblies/parts to then be viewed in Treeview for presentations.
THB I always though the programs fell into a neiche group. But I've now found a use for it as a good way to present to managment groups the planned implementaion of our re-development work. Currenly we have been using AutoCAD for the tree structures as an intrim.
Hi Brian, It seems that the file did not show up.
On the clicking advance edit on your reply allows you to attach files.
However I have found the download at
Hmm, they approved it and it was there for at least a little while. I guess they changed their mind and removed it, that is devious. Sorry about that, glad you found it elsewhere.
I have both now: Labs Treeview and Hawkware treeview and tools. Great!
I like Labs treeview better for building an assembly structure before starting designing in SW. The Hawkware treeview works with SW assemblies, so for that you will need to build the structure in SW first, which isn't as good. The hawkware tools are great for editing properties/colors etc after you have started building the SW files. Also: the bulk exporting feature is very nice!
So: thank you guys, I have all the tools I dreamed of now!
Thw Wayback Machine is very useful for finding old sites & pages.
The latest version of Treehouse (and other stuff) can be downloaded from the archived SolidWorks Labs ...
