Importing Inventor sheet metal into Solidworks

Question asked by Tyler McKay on Aug 24, 2017

I am fairly new to sheet metal design and have spent hours trying to make sense of importing an inventor sheet metal part into solidworks without losing attributes.

Is there a sure fire way of opening a .ipt file OR .step file in Solidworks while still retaining the bend deduction information that was input in Inventor?


The issue is causing us to HAVE to remodel the sheet metal part in Solidworks, but all the work was already done in Inventor.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
