Hello !   I'm trainee and I just use Solidworks to see and simplify mecanics models.  Also, I have to import these models to Revit and since SW 2019 it's possible but I have a lot of model and I would like to use a macro. The problem is when I use Defature, I can't record macro ... and the same thing if I use Export to AEC.   I've tried to do… (Show more)

Click to view contentMorning all,   I have an issue with a couple of my parts when exporting to a STEP file, I have some M5 self tapping screws that export with a sharp tip (at the wrong end) which comes out looking pretty cool but not very representative of the real thing,   Is there some settings I need to adjust in the exporting that I have missed?

# # Hi,   I'm having a bit of troubels here. A 3rd party has provided me with 4  .step assy's of hydraulic routing and connections that are imbedded in my project. All 4 Assy's are pretty much similar only kind of mirrored horizontal and vertical versions of one another. I started off saving them as part choosing the Geometry to save option… (Show more)

Hello everyone,   I know this seems to be a ongoing thing from what i can find, but with solidworks dxf mapping of parts i need help.  To start the reason i need it to map sketches in the part mode is cause that is how we send cut parts out in radan dtm. We do a lot of custom parts and like to put etching on them from convert entities. The issue… (Show more)

I am constrained (by our management) to exporting files from Inventor 2019.  I am constrained (by their management) to importing files into Solidworks 2018.  My head asplode.   The process so far is fairly straighforward - 1. I export the assembly as a .step 2. I open the .step in Solidworks, easy peasy. I have 3d Interconnect on to preserve… (Show more)

I can't seem to find anywhere which version of Solidworks will convert (don't want interconnect, will have to break link anyway) which version of Inventor file.  I need to convert Inventor 2019 (forced upgrade by corporate) using Solidworks 2018 (only version I have a license for).   Using neutral cad between is ugly - 350 screws are 350… (Show more)

Hello, I'm using SolidWorks 2018 to create a part. I save it as a .stl file and open it in Preform for 3d printing. In preform, it brings up an error that the file is broken and needs repair. The repair fails.   Is this something that others have dealt with?
