If you’ve ever created a derived part in SOLIDWORKS before, then you may have come across this dialog window:
Not an error message
It seems like an error message, but in fact, there is nothing wrong. SOLIDWORKS is just letting you know that your default template (specified in Tools > Options, then under the System Options tab, select Default Templates from the list on the left) has different units than the document that you are using as a source.
For example, if I have a multibody inch part open and I want to use the Save Bodies command (I describe it in this blog article) to make different parts for each body, and my default template is PART-MM (which has mm as default units), then I will receive the dialog message from SOLIDWORKS:
- If I say YES, then the newly created part will use inches.
- If I say NO, then it will be converted to mm.
Note there is also a checkbox for “Don’t show again,” which while I don’t normally recommend using, works well in this case since I will always want to do the same thing every time I run this command.
