This is a multi-body part (2 parts) I tried to save each part externally but it is producing error result. What is the reason?
I see your original part is in the folder C:\Users\Maha\Desktop\Lip Groove\ so folder permissions is not the problem. By default, SolidWorks will save your new parts into the same folder as the original part.
Question: Do you use this method to get to Save Bodies?: Insert > Feature > Save Bodies
I see that under Template Settings you did not check "override default templates"
When I do Save Bodies that way, I am prompted to select a part template for the new files.
Your screen shot seems to indicate SolidWorks is looking for a part template, ("part.prtdot") which by default is in this folder:
C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks 2016\SOLIDWORKS\lang\english\Tutorial
Did you pick a part template?
I also see that you have done Save Bodies 4 times in this part and they seem to have worked.
I did Save Bodies and typed in "Top Part" & "Bottom Part" as the file names and it worked fine.
Your screen shot indicates you did not type in a proper file name.
Result is same.
Maha Nadarasa can you change the file type to just solidworks part instead of split part and see what happens.
I couldn't understand what does it mean.
Steve means the little drop down box directly underneath where you type in the part name. You will see that at the moment in your screenshot it states:
Save as Type Splitpart (*.sldprt)
What Steve is suggesting is that you click the downward arrow at the end of that box and change the selection to:
Save as Type Part (*.prt, *.sldprt)
Then go back to the box above and give each part a unique name to identify it as you normally would.
Try it and see what happens.
I tried this before whereas Save as Type got only one option.
I guess that's not an option then........
It's strange that it appears that your are trying to save it to your desktop, yet the file path indicated in the error box would indicate that you were trying to save it within SolidWorks..........
Try creating a totally new folder within your "Documents" folder on your C: drive. Call this folder "Part Files"
Then try saving the parts into that newly created "Part Files" folder.
Bill Toft was able to save. It is what disturb me.
Did you try my new folder suggestion?
Seems like you do not have write access to C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks So make sure you've write access to this folder.
That's why I was suggesting another folder Deepak, as a process of elimination........
Dave, new folder won't work as he is saving to desktop and not to installed directory.. I believe that when you do the split bodies or do save bodies, SOLIDWORKS needs to create temporary files before you save them. And by default the path is installation folder. So you need write access for that.
Okay, I'm with you now Deepak.
I put the Lip Groove folder into SOLIDWORKS folder but the result is same.
I crated a Part Files in the Documents folder but result is same.
Can you try creating a new file and simple save in the that location and check if you can?
I did the way what you said. This was the message. There is no folder called Maha folder.
Set the admin rights for this folder: C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks
The message is clear that you do not have permission to save in that folder because you do not have write access to that folder. Set that correctly and check again.
I use student edition. Is that connected this issue?
No but it is related to admin rights in system.
What does it mean? How I can get admin right.
