  • 1. Find the registration code?
    Hi all! We use SolidWorks 2004 here at my job, and I've just recently had it installed on my machine. We have other installations on other machines, but mine is the most recent. We've gone through a few IT guys since the last install, and it seems that the documentation regarding the Registration Code has been lost. The current IT guy is looking into it, but his attempts to contact SolidWorks support have lead to them asking for a $1500 support renewal first. Does anyone know of a way to read the Registration Code from an installation on one of our other machines? Maybe it's in the registry or some other location? I'm not trying to use the software illegally, I just want to avoid the unreasonable (in my opinion) $1500 fee for a number we've misplaced.
  • 2. Please end my confusion
    Being that most of my experience has been in fabricating and molding plastics, I have to admit a serious gap in knowlege regarding "temper" of a flat brass metal strip that has to be inserted into one of our molded plastic parts. I was always led to believe that it was as a result of heat imposed on metal to make it softer. Now i am asked to find the brass strip material with a "temper". If someone would be kind enough to give me a quick synopsis on it, I am beholding to you. David

    Envelopes in assemblies won't pick lightweight components. If you are in a large assembly and trying to select using envelopes, then make sure everything is resolved first or you can over look things. TOP

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.
