I received a cad assembly from a vendor. When I tried to open the assembly with solidworks 2016. I caught the warning that Inventor 11 files are not supported. So my question is what versions are supported?
SW16 should open Inventor 11 and above
2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Import and Export File Version Information
2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Autodesk Inventor Files
Autodesk - Autodesk Inventor View
are you running the latest version of the Autodesk Inventor Viewer?
this will be required for importing native Inventor Files , if that does not work I would recommend requesting the assembly in STEP format for importing.
Also when using Inventor viewer you need to receive all of the part files with the assembly or you will be looking at a blank screen.
Thanks for the help. Found the problem was a corrupt part file buried deep in the tree.
