    Translating STEP in SolidWorks 2017 (or any year for that matter)

    Colby Putnam

      Hey all,


      I have been a designer/detailer for about 3 years now and have had to do minimal STEP translating. And by this i mean the file I have translated are very small and have never had an issue. Recently we have been doing jobs requiring for us to translate a extremely large files (1,507,648 Kb to be exact).


      My question is this. Is there any ways or pro tips on translating such large files faster/more efficient? The current file has been translating for 4 hours and  even then it is not gaurnteed to complete without crashing. Looking for some input. Maybe im just dead in the water with such large files haha.


      Thanks in advance!
