SpeedPak Enhancements

You can include reference geometry and curves in a SpeedPak. You can select sketches from any level of the assembly to include in a SpeedPak.

Previously, all top-level unabsorbed sketches were included in the SpeedPak. You had to suppress top-level sketches that you wanted to exclude, and you could not select sketches in subassemblies.

To include reference geometry and sketches in a SpeedPak:

  1. Open drive letter:\Users\Public\Public Documents\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS 2017\whatsnew\assemblies\speedpak\gearbox.sldasm.

  2. On the ConfigurationManager tab, right-click the Default configuration and click Add SpeedPak.
  3. In the graphics area, select the four faces shown for Faces to Include .

    Three of the faces are on the SHAFT - DRIVE component.
  4. In the PropertyManager, under Include, click in Reference Geometries, Sketches, and Curves to Include .
  5. In the graphics area, select the Axis of Rotation, Lube Only text, and Lube Arrow sketch shown.

  6. In the PropertyManager, under Options, select Remove ghost graphics.
  7. Click .
    The sketches and axis are included in the SpeedPak.
