  • 1. new part in assembly: top down
    I'm trying to make a new part within an assembly. Insert/component/new part produces a cube pointer. I can make the sketch but can't extrude it. How should I do it? TIA, Mac

  • 3. API: Switch from dialog to SW to select entities
    Hi, I hope I'm not bothering too much... But I got stuck again writing this little macro in VB. I'm using a VB form (kind of dialogue box) which is running but I can't figure out howto go to the SW app to 'pick' entities & then return to this dialogue box with the information herefrom. Could anyone tell me which commands/instructions/methods I should study to achieve this? Thanks in advance, Best, JM
  • 4. What hardware should I buy?
    I am currently running SW2004 SP1 on a workstation built by our system guys. It is a 2.4ghz P4, 1048KB ram, Nvidea GEforce 4, Windows 2000. It runs SW OK for machine design, but there is too much time spent waiting for commands to execute. We also are about to add a couple more designers to SW and are looking at starting up with PDM works and a new server for our workgroup. My first question is what have others recently tried out for workstations? I'm leaning towards a 3.2ghz P4, 2 or 3 MB ram, Nvidea Quadro FX1000 or FX2000, Windows XP Pro. I guess I'm just wondering if I should spend more on ram over video, processor over ram, OS, etc. Also, how much does the workstation builder matter in the finished product? From reading reviews they sometimes make mention of how very similar systems sometimes have speed differences based on who built it and what little "tweeks" they have put into the system. If we buy one I am leaning towards a Dell or Xi, but our systems guys may want to build it unless I have a good reason why they shouldn't. Any advice or links to good reviews would be appreciated.

Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell are just awesome musicians. jon

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.
