Is it a bad idea to have my local TopSolidPdm on the company Server?

Hello, The way the computers on my network are setup is that everything which is located in "My Documents" actually resides on our Server instead of on each individual machine. So if my local "TopSolidPdm" folder was placed into MY Documents, it would actually be sitting on the server and not on my ...

How to orientate auxiliary view

Hi there, I often come across this problem so I am sure I am missing some fundamental understanding when it comes to drafting (or perhaps frames). I need to orientate my shaded part in the same way as on the right hand side shaded drawing. The problem is, no matter where I move my cursor when trying...

Re: Best way to uninstall redundant tooling libraries

Hi Remi, Thank-you for your quick reply.

Are Part > Properties disabled for the trial version?

Hello, I went to edit the Properties of a PART which I just created and all fields are greyed out (see screenshot). Additionally Tools > Material & Coating fields are also blanked out. Is this functionality disabled for the trial version of TS? Not to worry, I see I can edit these values via Entitie...

Re: How to change Project units?

For anyone else who ever gets stuck on this: Even if you import a project whose units are Imperial, if your TopSolid is set to Metric units by default then every new Document (Part or otherwise) will default to Metric. Two ways of fixing this: Permanent fix for all documents which are added to the p...

Why is this forum so quiet?

I'm wondering why this forum is so quiet when there's obviously a large user base for TopSolid. Perhaps there's a more active forum in french? Or perhaps it's because this forum setup is a bit 'clunky'... or that the "notify me when a reply is posted" does not work. Anyone know of another forum for ...
