Groove Tool - Inserting circlips and Annotations

Question asked by Richard Bettman on Jul 28, 2015

I needed to add circlips to an assembly. I used the addin toolbox groove creator to add a  ANSI B27.8M - 3FM1-6, C Type Retaining Ring. All of which worked perfectly. The problem comes in when I try bring in the ANSI B27.8M - 3FM1-6, Circlip. When I drag the circlip onto the shaft Solidworks complains. See the screen shot.


Also I would like to know whether there is a better way to annotate the groove in a working drawing. I'm currently using the smart dimension tool.
