  • 1. Opening Unigraphics Files
    Anyone else having problems opening large (280 meg) UG files in SolidWorks? We've got one of the best Dell machines with 2 Gig of ram. It seems to really bog down when doing the translating. Once it's in everything seems O.K..We deal with a lot of automotive customers who generally supply large files with tons of extra info. we don't need in the models. We have to work with what we're given. SW vendor has suggested going up to 4 Gig. Comments appreciated. Thanks, Mike
  • 2. How to change Default Page Setup settings? Please help
    Hi everyone I need to change the default Page Setup setting, in "Resolution an Scale", so that it would select "Same as Window" (instead of defaul "Scale to 100%). I tried to change some settings in regedit, but n luck. What exactly do I need to change? I'm actually usin SolidWorks 2005 Viewer, which has shared regedit page setup value like standard SolidWorks I need this to automate printing of over 500 files (with a seperat printing utility) Thank you in advance for any suggestions
  • 3. Property transfer macro
    Hi all, those anyone has a macro that would transfer custom properties from a certain config to the common custom properties? I am not a programmer and I have a lot of file to modify? Thanks. DB
  • 4. RomanS font???
    Hi, I would like to know if someone experienced problems with the RomanS font. People here, all ACAD users, doesn't like the Century Gothic default font because it's to compact when scaled to fit from A1 to A3. The RomanS font doesn't come out well when printed on an A1 sheet: it prints like an old dactylo machine lacking of ink. What could be the problem? Is there other recommanded fonts? And what about the diameter sign, it comes out in thin lines almost not visible no matter what font I use? Thanks JC
  • 5. Cut with two or more surfaces. Possible? e.g. A pyramid from a cube
    Is it possible to cut with two or more surfaces at the same time? E.g. If you have a cube you could cut a pyramid shaped hole in it. Three surfaces could be defined to intersect at a point within the cube. Then if you could cut to the three surfaces, the pyramid would be removed. Is there an easy way to do something like this? Thanks

Has most Solidworks models for direct download.

Very detailed and great for running COSMOS prior to construction.

I clicked on at least 20 assorted items and no models.  Do you have a 
specific example?

We had the McMaster boys in on 4-13-05 and they were asking about
suggestions, changes and how we used their website.  The first thing which
popped into my mind was to make their 3D models more accessible.

Instead of searching and searching down through all their items, then
entering given specifications, then showing if there was an available
models, just get me to the parts.  If something is exactly as I require,
great, they are number one on the vendor list.  If not, let me modify an
available model/solid for my requirements and I'll search for vendors later,
but I'll get my work done.

They could be a great source for part data and part dimensional

Give me your thoughts, I'm sure they are still open for suggestions and I'm
positive they don't watch this group.

I just thought it would be nice to see what everyone else thought.

1.IMPORT: McMaster Carr parts

Just had a user come to me with a problem. He stated that a pipe
fitting he had downloaded from McMaster had zero weight. I looked into
it and the part was scaled down by 25.4 in the STEP file he had
gotten. Has anybody else run into this?

There were two possible fixes. One was to import with template units
and use mm. The other was to scale the part.

One cause I thought of was that whoever created the STEP didn't write
units into the file since SW by default looks for units in STEP files.

2.Charted drawings - Models warped but flat drawing charted

Ok fellas,
    I will do my best to explain what we do and hopefully it isn't as
difficult as it seems.

We have a sidewall on a body that has a large curve to it.  The model of the
sidewall is modeled curved as that's how it fits into the weldment.  However
the sheet is cut flat and not bent but warped during manufacturing and
welded in place.  What I have then is a model of a curved sheet that really
needs a drawing showing just the flat.  The problem is I want to chart these
with other flats of the same material.  Is there a way to do this.  Cutting
just cuts a flat sheet out of 11 ga material and any other 11 ga could be
charted on this drawing.

If this isn't clear let me know and I'll try to explain better.
