A baker’s dozen of tips and tricks Part 1 – from 2018 SEU events

John Pearson - Tuesday, January 01, 2019

This year, Designfusion hosted and participated in 5 Solid Edge University events. Starting with SEU Toronto, and followed by SEU Montreal, and then our 2-Day SEU event in Chicago. We then ran two events called the “Best of SEU 2018” in Olds, Alberta and Winnipeg, Manitoba. One of the most popular sessions was our Tips and Tricks session. For those of you who missed one of these events, we offer you this blog which covers the tips and tricks session.

 



 

 

  • 1.Clean out your windows temp folder.
  •  

To do this, you want to delete all the files in the C:\Users\[username]\AppData\ Local\Temp folder. Where [username] is the name that you use to log in to windows. You will need administrator privileges.

 


 

Note: If you can't find the AppData folder, you have to go to the View tab and select Options. In the Folder Options dialog, go to the View tab and make sure that you toggle on the Show hidden files, folders, and drives option.

 


 

Select all the files in the temp folder using the Ctrl+A keys, and then hit the Delete key. You’ll be prompted with the following message:

 


 

Click Yes. Don’t worry, Windows will not let you delete any files that it still needs. If Windows still requires a file, you will get the following message:

 


 

Toggle on the “Do this for all current items” option and click Skip.

 

If Windows still requires a folder, you will get the following message:

 


 

Toggle on the “Do this for all current items” option and click Skip.

 

Note: Once this task is complete, I would suggest that you also empty your Recycle Bin.

 

  • 2.Keep your drivers up to date.
  •  

This becomes obvious when new versions of software are installed. Especially with graphic performance. Keeping your graphic card, and hardware, drivers up to date will eliminate most of these issues.

 


 

Demo 1A: Move and rotate faces.

 


 


 

Demo 1B: Move and rotate faces with the steering wheel.

 


 




 

Demo 2: Multi-Body parts and features.


 



 

Auto scroll assembly pathfinder

 

When checked, the assembly PathFinder scrolls to the component selected in the assembly window.

 



 

Demo 3: Using the Assembly Relationship Manager

 


 



 

Demo 4: Using Pack and Go.

 

 


 

 



 

Demo 5: Create a simple variable table motor.

 


 

This concludes Part one of this Blog. Look for Part 2, coming soon.
