  • 1. Opening read-only items
    I recently changed my settings so that referenced documents are loaded read-only, and it doesn't prompt to save them. In an assembly, if I want to change a component, I can just RMB it and select reload to turn off the read-only flag. So far so good. My problem is with drawings of assemblies. If I open a drawing of a top-level assembly, everything is loaded read-only, but there then seems to be no way of selectively changing components' read-only flags so that they can be edited. Even if you do a "file-open" on an assembly component, it still opens it read-only. The only solution seems to be to close the drawing, open up the assembly for write-access and then open the drawing again. Is there a better way? TIA John H
  • 2. Anyone using "INDENT"
    Is anyone using the indent feature? The help files indicate it can be used with multiple tool bodies. I can select multiple bodies, but it only does a cut for one of the tool bodies. Am I doing something wrong? Bama
  • 3. keyboard
    I'm very impressed with how 2008 has improved work flow by eliminating useless key strokes. No instead of wasting time hitting my delete key or enter key, I can spend speed up the process by right clicking my mouse and shoving it all ovet the place looking for X's and check marks. By SW2009 probably we won't need the keyboard at all - instead of wasting time typing in the numbers for dimensions and names for parts, we can use the mouse for selecting each number and letter on special popup number and keyboard screens with oh-so-cool graphics. Idiots.

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
representation.

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.

Thanks
