Seriously though ... this one’s not so much a frequent time saver, but one that can save a lot of headache and data loss.
If you’re ever prevented from saving a file due to a network glitch but haven’t saved your file in a while (who does that?), you can use the Application Button – Share – Mail Recipient to e-mail yourself or a coworker a copy of your current file. It doesn't seem to matter if it's a Part, an Assembly or a Draft. The linked files are not included, obviously.
Solid Edge seems to be able to successfully perform a background save and attaches your up-to-date file to an e-mail. You can then detach the file attachment and replace it in the working folder.
It works with Outlook, but I’ve never tested it with anything else.
@KevinAlexander Mail Recipient is greyed out for me. Probably because of Insight I'm guessing. Wonder if it works in TC? Good idea though.
<edit> Pack and Go works though. Could probably use that.
I can't believe I didn't notice this button in the last 10 years!
Love to move parts in a subassembly without the need to enter it!
This must be the most hidden gem in Solid Edge, or at least for me that I do use Solid Edge since version 6 (Yes 6 not ST6) it is something I never discovered until now.
Hole feature with 4 holes
Selection of the feature highlight the 4 holes
Instead of select I wait for the quickpik to appear and....
In the quickpik list there is the hole feature that contains the 4 holes but also is listed the single hole (the one of the four that the mouse pointer is over).
Then I can select the single hole and delete it without the need to enter the hole feature sketch and edit it.
This will save me alot of time; entering a sketch to edit in my system is something very slow.
Am I the only one not knowing about this ?
As you can see in the image above, "Foro 36" highlight a single hole, "Foro 36" is not presente in pathfinder and it is part of "Foro 18" feature
