Hello every one,
when i open step file it create hollow surface in part but i need a solid body so how can i convert it into a solid body i am attaching a step file and jpeg you can see it
Considering that it appears to have been created in NX, I would simply ask for a parasolid.
..interesting, this will NOT import cleanly in any SolidWorks version.. BUT it imports with no problem in FreeCad and Fusion360!?
...looks like our importing components are OUT OF DATE!?
It's same with Onshape. Import it without any issue.
Did you export a file from FreeCAD?
I tried both IGS and STP and I get a message from SolidWorks indicating that the file cannot be imported because it contains an assembly.
Chris,.. yes, the step file FreeCad created was an assembly (not sure if it's by default or there is a option?)
I checked the FreeCAD settings/prefs and the only option was a checkbox to save as a manifold solid for for IGS export.
Try any one of these attached files
One is a SW2015 file and other one is parasolid
Thanks JOHN GEORGE ...!!!!
We have a seat of TransMagic.
Here you go.
Edit: Someone beat me to it. LOL. By the way, mine is SW 2015 as well.
Thanks Dan Pihlaja ..!!!!
Hey Dan... just a note.. Transmagic.. well, it did not do it's magic... (see attached)
You are correct. I see that now. hrmm....
how you complete this process.
can you tell me in steps?
Well, I assume that you are asking how we translated the file to be a solid model.
I can't speak for anyone else, but for me, I didn't use Solidworks to translate it. We have a seat here of something called "TransMagic" and I used that to translate it. It does have a Solidworks add in though.
The Solidworks translator leaves many things to be desired. It is unfortunate that sometimes we are forced to go outside of Solidworks to get the result that we want when translating STP, Parasolid or IGS files, but that is the way it is for some things.
Opened in SW 2016 no problem for me. Make sure you have "B-rep mapping" and "Map configuration data" selected on your import options. To get there, set file type on file-open to step and select the options button. Considering the amount of step file import problems these settings solve, it is surprising that the are not selected by default.
hmm,.. in 2016sp5.. per your options, it still has face problems,.. which auto repair can not heal.
Try this step file. It was done with KeyCreator.
Solidworks part imported for above KeyCreator file
