I hava a 3d dwg file(45mb)
I go to open then select 3d option on the preview everything is fine but then a massive mess is loaded.
I cannot convert.
Only I want use dwg/dxf(not stl, sat, parasolid)
You need to be more specific about the "mess" you are seeing.
Also, what are the types of entities you have in the DWG file? ACIS solids (i.e. 3D Solids in Autodesk nomenclature), 3D faces, Meshes?
Thanks for reply
I can convert to standart file format(STL, ACIS)
But Solidworks cannot open files. Files are too large and too mesh.
I cannot find solution.
Any screen capture?
I deleted screen capture.

It is critical to know what type of geometry you have in the file.
Autodesk has not used ACIS since ACIS v7 *.sat (many many years ago) and instead now use Autodesk Shape Manager for 3D solids.
You should run the List command or Properties command in AutoCAD to determine what type of geometry you have in the dwg file.
If you don't have AutoCAD or you don't know very much about geometry types - you should attach your file here or hire an expert to show you how to utilize various geometry types.
I removed AutoCAD. I attached dwg file.
I do not go to 3rd party websites to download files that install malware on my machine.
Attach your dwg file directly here.
I keep my SolidWorks machine squeaky clean and do not experience the problems that many others describe here.
Sorry for the delayed response, I was expecting E-mail notification of a reply like on most forums.
Anyway, when you go to export a STL file, there is a options button on the lower left of that window. There you will find settings for the resolution. Since there are no curves in STL files, all curves surfaces are approximated with facets. The greater the number of facets, the smoother your model, but the larger the file size.
As for bringing in a complex STL file. It may be that you can use something like the Open Source programs Blender, or Mesh Mixer to import and then reduce the number of faces. But, I have not used them to know how easy it is to do that.
