AHHHHH! Why is it every time I (or with your help) work one problem out, another problem occurs? I have followed the advice referring to the TOOLBOX, but still have a problem! At work, I have the toolbox installed onto the C: drive with the default file location. At Home I also have the toolbox installed on the C: drive with the default file location. I have checked the toolbox ini files and they are the same. I am using a standard Ansi metric 8x90mm socket head bolt from the toolbox, at work. I them brought home a assembly with a block of metal with four of these bolts in. I then went to file ,open and checked the references and they were at the same location. I then opened the assembly and ended up with huge big bolts, not the 8x90 mm ones!! How? what? where? All I want, is it to work, is that really too much to ask?
Another newbie question. (insert heavy sigh here) I am mating 2 parts together. Each part has aligning holes. I open the toolbox dialog box, select one of the holes, and populate all. All holes highlight, but get only one fastener. Am I short 1 setting or a step. Thanks, Joel
sw2004 Sp3.0 First the mates question. Scenario one, If I select a side of a part and select other, click ok, hold the Ctrl key and then select another part, then select the mates icon, the mate that I require works. Scenario two, If I have the mates selection box open, select a side of a part and select other, click ok, the selection changes from "other" to the side I first selected !! I have tried this in several assemblies and happens all the time. Is this a bug? Toolbox question, I have been playing around with adding my own parts to the toolbox and now I want to delete the test parts. Is there a way? Sheet metal question, 1.2mm mild steel, 100x100mm base flange, 25x25mm centred edge flange, back stop set to 25mm, 90deg bend. Why does the fold go all the way along the flange edge, even if the edge flange is smaller in width than the base flange? Using 0.8mm radius tooling and a 10mm "V", this would never happen in "real life", as the base flange edge would just get lost in the "V"
