obj or 3ds conversion to solidworks files

Discussion created by Guest on Jul 8, 2006
If you have max, save the files to AutoCAD DWG or DXF. Then open the file, specify that you want to import it into a part as a 3D model or curves. You'll probably hate the result You might do better to convert the meshes to Nurbs surfaces in Max and then export them as an IGES file.
And to tell you the complete truth, you probably are better off exporting the meshes as STL's and importing them into SW. At least then you have control over the mesh quality.
Good luck.
