    Importing to Solidworks (from Fusion 360/other?)

    David Christian

      Hello everybody,

       

      I'm pretty used to Solidworks, and I used it extensively while getting my degree, but now that I'm graduated I don't have access to it anymore.

       

      Anyways, I have a prospective boss who wants to test my Solidworks skills.  Fusion 360 is readily available for free for now, as unfortunately Solidworks is out of my personal price range at the moment, so I'll be using that.  However, I recall in my own adventures of importing things into Solidworks, things were generally undimensioned and geometry could often get really funky.

       

      Is there a particular filetype that would be best to import into solidworks with?  Or any other things I should make certain of when preparing my CAD files?
