  • 1. Converting SolidWorks VBA Forms to Visual Basic.NET Forms
    Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has had some experience with this that they may be able to share. I have moved VBA forms into VB6 before without any problems, but VB.NET does not seem to recognise the frm or the frx files. I am a novice at VB.NET so I'm hoping that I may be missing something. I'm using SolidWorks 2003 & VB.NET Standard 2003. TIA. Shane
  • 2. What good is VRML in SolidWorks !?
    I'm looking for a model of an ATV (four wheeler), and came across a pretty good one at 3dcafe.com, but it was a 3d studio mesh that I converted to vrml with crossroads 3d and brought it into SolidWorks. It looks faceted, but would have worked for my application, had it been 3d data of some sort. Really, what is the value of being able to open a vrml file in SolidWorks if you cannot manipulate or even touch off of data? On a side note, If anyone knows of a model of an ATV, I'd be grateful! --Matt Schroeder
  • 3. How important is it for SW to be compatabel with an MRP system
    We are currently in the process of looking for an MRP/ERP system. How important is it to be able to have the two to communicate/Linked to each other. Why is it important to have them linked? what are the pros and cons? Any information you can give me would help allot! Thanks Nathan
  • 4. Tips on Custom Properties, should/shouldnt do
    I started messing with custom properties, and added "Part Type" to about 150 parts. I wanted this to show up in the BOM, under a new column. After playing around with it and reading the Help file, I found out I should have put "Part_Type", and that spaces arent allowed. My question, is there anything else I should make sure I do or dont do? I know have to go back and change all those parts to Part_Type. Suggestions/comments welcome. Thanks.
  • 5. OT: HPnw8000 & Realview
    OK heres my little dilemma... I have HP nw8000 laptop with FireGL T2 display adapter. HP only offers drivers v 7.96 whre as ATI has to offer 7.98 (needed for Realview). For my understanding, I cannot install those ATI drivers, cause it's for "stand-alone" cards, not for mobility cards? right? any way to modify those ATI's to "fit" to my HP.... or do I just have to wait that HP/Compaq people get their asses off the chair and code those newer drivers?

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.
