I have updated to Solidworks 2016 SP3 and when I try to open a solidworks file in Master Cam X9 update 3 I get the following:
Found Problem. Must have Solidworks loaded on the same work station with MasterCam, or change solid import converter settings in MasterCam.
I also have the same problem. Which solid import settings should I change in Mastercam?
First you have to load MasterCam X9. There are three updates for X9, you need to load all three updates. If you have solidworks 16 on that same work station it should open the soildworks 2016 files. If you don't have solildworks on that station you need to open mastercam X9 , click on settings, click on converter which you will see on the left side of the open window, un check the box which refers to soildworks models. If it is already un checked you may have to check it on, save, than uncheck the box and save again.
I'm using SolidWorks 2015 and Mastercam X8
Have you verified that this fixes the issue? I followed your instructions and cannot seem to get it to work on any of the workstations. I still get the error that you originally posted.
Using SW 2016 SP4 and MasterCAM X9. SW is installed on the workstations with MasterCAM.
