  • 1. macro sample?
    Hi all, I have a macro that I wish to expand on. I need to embed the existing code in a loop that will create a selection set of part files in a specified folder, then execute the macro on each file. I was hoping to find an existing macro sample that demonstrates parsing a folder, creating a selection set and sequentially opening each part in solidworks and executing the existing code that I have. I've searched the solidworks site sample code and my own macros but no existing macros demonstrate this ability. If you've come across this before - I'd appreciate it! Thanks, Zander
  • 2. SWks 2006 Won't Read .x_t files from 2007?
    Damn, Now I've been forced to get 2007 before SP4! A moldmaker updated every one of about a hundred files on a new mold to 2007. (He must not have enough to do to keep himself busy.) So I asked him to send the mold base/inserts in Parasolid so I could open them in 2006 as dumb solids. But...2006 will not open the x_t files. Any other time I have opened x_t files (maybe dozens of situations), they have worked just fine, so I never thought about this issue. Any clue as to why Swks 2006 will not open these when sent from Swks 2007? Thanks - Bo
  • 3. Another PDMW question
    When I use the bulk check-in to check in a top level assembly it finds all the parts and assemblies required but it does not find the drawings? My project directory structure is typically three folders, Assemblies, Drawings, Parts and my library parts are on my server.The bulk check in will find all the sub components but not the drawings.

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.
