  • 2. Underdefined sketch
    I am trying to get a sketch fully defined. I presently have the <-> sign in front of the sketch. For the life of me I cannot see why it is underdefined, (the sketchs are in blue). I have tried Fixed, but then I get over defined. Are there any tools that would screen this sketch and tell me what I am missing? I am working in 2006 SW.
  • 3. "Copy settings" between major releases
    I've been using the Copy Settings wizard to transfer my SWX settings either between computers and (more commonly) to restore them after installing a major new release (i.e. one of the annual ones). My VAR told me yesterday that they don't advise doing this for major releases, and that I should manually recreate all the settings. This could then be saved and used on other pc's after they have been upgraded. Is this really "necessary"? It seems astounding to me that I should be advised to go through an error prone manual procedure to change file locations (the most important aspect for me) along with a host of other tweaks. The conversation took place because my VAR was trying to chase down a problem/bug I'm currently experiencing. What does everyone else do? John H
  • 4. embedding excel sheet
    Hi all - I'm trying to write a macro that will let me edit properties on a bunch of files at once, using an Excel table. Is there a way to use an embedded Excel sheet, a la design tables, instead of launching Excel as a separate app and having to work around a way to trigger data retrieval by SW? I have all the other code - select a folder, step through the files of the selected type gathering their properties and drop it all into a worksheet. Now I just need the right way to access Excel. I've got a workaround in mind (use a dedicated workbook for this purpose, clear it out every time, and add a button to my form triggering retrieval) but I'm hoping for something more direct. Thanks in advance, -Mark [x-posted to SolidMentor]
  • 5. replace component and mate problem
    I have replaced a component and have checked "re attach mates", but I still have numberous triangles and exclamation marks. Is there any easier way than to go into every mate and re-mate manually?

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.
