      Hi
      This is similar to question posted on 1/12/2007. I am exporting complex geometry out of solidworks and saving them as IGES/STEP/ACIS. However, when I reopen the IGES/STEP/ACIS files with solidworks, I get an error: No solid data in file. I am trying to find out whether the complexity of the geometry is the problem. The IGES/ACIS and STEP formats are easier to import into other software that I am using.

          Hi Shawn,
          Please check your export and import settings. For export please make sure that solid/surface is selected and for import likewise, make sure that surface/solid entities is selected.
