If I were to do a multi-document structure, and wanted to export step files of all the results. That would be painful
SW still has the advantage there with task scheduler...
Amazing to see that traditional CAD software is also moving to the cloud..... but see for yourself:
In the description of the video is the link to the cloud viewer.
Right now ofcourse. Email link saved me dowload/upload celular data. Nice. Now if only it could send multiple links in one email.
Well, looks like you can't obtain a lic over VPN guess I'll have to remember to check out a lic every weekend... lame
Makes you really miss the any-time any-where login...
Suddenly everything I always hated with installed software came back to me - dozen error messages telling me I'm missing something. Nope it's definitely not me who is missing this stuff
Half an hour trying to find out why SolidWorks crashes after making some improvements in the code of our Addin ... It broke when I opened the file I was using to do the tests without any reason.
That sample file had been corrupted!!!

Just for shits, I put a new hole callout dimension and behold, it is metric.
F'ing SometimesWorks! this half arse'd crap is what makes me look like an idiot in the shop and cost us when they make a bunch of bad parts! What is the point of parametric detailing if you still have to check every f'ing dimension!
I see the (-) symbol in front of the guard window. (EXTREMELY USEFUL)
But it is odd, I had it mated yesterday..
One of the rotational mates just is gone, but the real dumb thing is: The concentric mate is there, but it is being ignored.. No red or yellow indication, or any sign of being broken.. SW just chose to ignore it, only fix was to delete and re-make the same mate...
Then people wonder why I call it SometimesWorks...
F'ing great, Haven't touched this project in a week. So naturally it destroyed itself... Sigh.. This project I almost convinced my boss to do in Onshape... So close...
SW decided it no longer likes my M6 Holes here.
Sketch is good, but it says it has dangling references. Not sure how, I have it coincident to the origin and a horizontal construction line.
Digging in, it all checks out, as fully defined without any yellow dangling references..
GIF cuts out early, but the fix was to delete everything in the sketch and start over. Typical SW... Makes you do everything at least twice.
Just shoot me...
We JUST went through this a couple days ago!
- "Oh yes mr. customer, we absolutely use SolidWorks!"
> "Oh boy! I've heard of that brand before! your company must really go all out for the best tools to make our equipment!"
- "We also use Onshape"
> "Huh? What's that?"
- "It's a stable, faster, cheaper, secure, and more accessible platform that does exactly the same thing."
> "What do you mean more accessible?"
- "It's on the cloud"
> "Oh! I've head that name before. Cloud scares me. Use solidworks"
- ..... [Smacks Head] ....
meanwhile, I'm walking up-hill backwards trying to get this damn thing to work consistently for more than 3 days in a row.
I made a concentric mate, but the mate decided it wanted to be a tangent instead...
SW credo: If it's worth doing once, than it's worth doing over...d
which says a lot about how frequent these issues arise, and why I'm so sour about SW.
I wish I had my camera today in the WebEx design review this morning...
4 guys standing around a big screen tv (just in our conference room) with their hands on their hips, (I hear finger drumming over the conference phone on the customer end) and all we are staring at is a white screen and this familiar image
It took a while, but it finialy finished crunching.. then it crashed to desktop.. Should have figured..
It happened yet again... SW just caused us to throw away 84 feet of stainless steel because it doesn't identify ALL broken dimensions or references anymore.. So you miss the 1 sheet that had bad information... and of coarse to compound that mistake with the shop only reading the dimension off 1 of the sheets, he just so happened to read the bad one... FML Death to SW!
I just spent an hour downloading and cleaning up file reference errors (due to everyone working on their own hard drives at home)
just to get a message seconds after I finished.
Apparently he decided not to update his portion before finishing work (as was the plan). So much for getting up an hour before everyone and updating my main layouts...
managing CAD remotely is stupid without a cloud!
