Has this become a feature I need to unlock through an upgrade. Solidworks keep up the great work.
What version of SolidWorks and eDrawings are you currently using?
How are you exporting the eDrawings with the FEA results? - RMB on the results folder, 'save all plots as eDrawings' is the route i have used with this very simple static study which i have attached. This opened up correctly on my computer and I was able to rotate/investigate the part.
For reference I created the part and study in SW 2016 SP3.0 and opened using eDrawings 2016 SP3.0.
If you cant open the attached file, but are using eDrawings 2016 SP3.0 it may be worth repairing the install or contacting your VAR
Yea RMB is the only way I know to save the results as an edrawing. It still crashes every time. VARs are about as useful as....
What version of SolidWorks and eDrawings are you using? Service pack 3.0 for 2016 has been much better for me.
We like to wait until the last service pack to upgrade every year. Why SW cant check their own shite before releasing it on paying customers is my real question.
So I take it you are using SolidWorks 2015 SP5.0 and eDrawings 2015?
Updating once the software has reached Service pack 3.0 and above is a very good idea to minimise any unintended delays or problems. I have to admit that I have never found this problem before. Have you tried running SolidWorks in either of the safe modes? You can access these by starting the SolidWorks RX from Start>All programs>SolidWorks>SolidWorks Tools. Once this is open the safe modes are immediately avilable - software opengl and bypassed options. If it works OK with software opengl then it is something wrong with your graphics card or driver - ensure you are using the correct driver here: Graphics Card Drivers | SOLIDWORKS .
Im sure SolidWorks check these features before release, and normally something like this would be present in an earlier service pack where deadlines must be met by their development, as this seems to be confined to your environment i would suggest there is something else at play rather than an inherent problem with the software development.
David, sounds like you need a different VAR.
I have a few ideas, like messing with the registry, but I don't want to screw you up.
There is a way to run SWX in safe mode and try it again. Open SOLIDWORKS Rx and scroll down to SOLIDWORKS Safe Modes.
You can try OpenGL mode and then try the second link that bypasses tools and options.
If that works, then you have some hints as to what it is (graphics or a problematic option setting). good luck
