3D PDF error

Morning all,

 

Hope you're well. I've exported 3D PDF files previously for clients who can't view CAD models, without any issues- UNTIL NOW.

 

Usually I build an assembly in SolidWorks and save to a 3D PDF. This time, a colleague has built one in Catia, saved it as a STEP, which I have opened in SW to save out as a 3D PDF, but the result is only a series of lines expanding from a central point- see CAD, then PDF below:

What's going wrong? Could it be the chain of events to get it there? The Assembly size (240 MB)? Does anyone have any other ideas? (I might try to bring the Catia file straight in with Interconnect and see how that goes).

 

Thanks for looking (and hopefully shedding some light on thee problem)!

 

All the best,

 

Jord
