Has anyone used the 3D internet connect option yet with 2017 Solidworks?
In response to your title, catia files can only be opened with SolidWorks Premium. If you have SNL, you probably need to load a Premium addin first (like routing or simulation).
Also 3D Interconnect is turned off by default. You'll need to turn it on by going to Tools > Options > Import > Change the dropdown to "Inventor/Catia...." > Tick the option 'Enable 3D Interconnect'
I've not tried it but here are the options available for Catia
Thank you for your responses
