    I didn’t realize you had any new posts since this post went up, because this one has been sticky on top. I thought, “would be nice if he had new posts to subscribe too”. 🙂

    How are you Deepak Sir? I am Solidworks v2010 user.
    I am getting an error while saving macros. Saving macros in *.swp file gives no error but when I want to save a macro in *.vbproj & *.csproj, the macro is not saved at all. I have tried the same after installing visual studio 2010 professional. Please look into the matter and comment.

        I asked this on behalf of Devi Prasad Samal. He’s my colleague :). We are still not able to troubleshoot the problem.

            Hello Deepak,

            I have tried in all machines where solidworks have been installed, but every where i am getting the same problem. I have checked that my system have Visual studio tools for application & .net frame work. but the issue remains.

            I have asked one of our reseller about this. but they replied that u can’t save macro only in *vbproj. as I dont have viusal studio not installed on my system.

            So my question is: to save a macro in *.vbproj do we really need to install visual studio? because depending upon that i can ask question him further.

    Hi Mr Gupta, I’m from Colombia and i need some help. Do you know a way to put a text on a drawing depending of the life cycle status, i mean, if the drawing in in approved status then in the drawing appear a text that say “approved”, or something like that, something that changes automatic with the life cycle. Hope you can help me. THanks.

    1. Deepak Gupta Post author

      You might create a property in the drawing File properties and link that to the life cycle which should get updated while you check in the drawing into PDM. And then create a note on the drawing which is linked to this property.

    2. Deepak Gupta Post author

      You can also add a column in Revision table that have the property that say “approved”, or something like that which can be filled while checking in the file into PDM.

    Hi Deepak,
    I don’t know whether to post this here or not, I had a question please help me out.

    I just started SolidWorks and its customization (using C#) last week. I had a question which i posted in the forums but no one had replied for that.

    I need to invoke SolidWorks from C# and can be done by
    SldWorks swApp = new SldWorks();

    but what if i had different versions of solidWorks installed in my system and i need to invoke particular version of SolidWorks (Assume i had full file paths for the different versions). Please help me in this regard.Sorry if this is not the right place.

    Thanks in Advance
    Venkata Ramesh V

    Hello all, Well my name is Joseph and I am Brazilian.

    I created a blog called http://solid3d.blogspot.com/, and would like you to help me spread among the users CAD, because in Brazil there are few sites and blogs that are intended to help users for free. Could you help me to disclose?

      Best will to use machine design book. Apart from that, look around yourself and try to make the objects that you can see physically around you. Try some cool renderings on them. For issues you can always come back. 🙂
