  • 1. font color went nuts !!!!!!
    the other day I loaded sw2004sp0 on both my laptop (quadro700) and my desktop (quadro980XGL - 41.04) looked through sw2004 what's new, loaded samples, etc.on the desktop and shut it down. Then, back to sw2003sp4 on the desktop, i started a new drawing of an assembly model that was all MDT imported components. i was having trouble with disappearing notes, dims, and even lines, but i was thinking it had something to do with the data. then i closed this stuff and brought up some older drawings and found that my notes disappear on everything, even a freshly made drawing & model. Turns out that the notes are being applied with a white font, so you can't see them unless you make the viewport offcolor. The notes print black like normal, though. This effect is the case now on both sw2003 and sw2004, but not on an old sw2001+ installation (on the desktop). The laptop does not have this problem at all yet, but I haven't really used it or saved any files since installing sw2004. I don't know that the sw2004 install caused this, but I do know that I worked on drawings the day before (sw2003) without problems. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see any way to affect font color. I don't use layers and there aren't any defined in this or any other drawing on my machine. has anyone else seen something like this? thanks bill
  • 2. Dimension add, substract, multiplication and division
    Hi, In the sketch mode in SW2003 SP4, when I create new dimensions and I enter in the modify box, an addition like "20+1" I get an error message. "Enter a number between 0.1 and 1000000" In previous versions of SW I was able to enter an addition, substraction, multiplication and divisions. Right now, only the division is working, the other 3 I get a message error. Can you guys check if you get the same error? Thanks. Remove 213
  • 3. Newbie - Mold Cavity for this part?
    Hi Everyone, I have utilized SW for die design for 3 years now, but a customer has now asked me to create a die for drawing stainless steel pockets. This is testing my limited experience with the more advanced options in SW. The part is similar to a pocket found on a locker door. To create the die section I thought utlilizing the mold tools would be the best method. I can get the cavity created... but how do I remove the material from inside the pocket? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

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.
