      This issue has been happening intermittently since we upgraded from SW2015 to SW2017 a month ago. Cannot seem to figure it out.

      I tried adjusting the Import Options one by one, but to no avail.

      The weird thing is that it opens up in eDrawings just fine. I could see if it didn't open up in eDrawings and SolidWorks, then i would assume that the file may be corrupt.

      Note: When I open the file with notepad it appears that the file was generated from inventor.

      Anyone have any idea?
