Mirrored sheetmetal parts crashing some workstations

Hi there,


I'm having a strange issue whereby we've got some parts that seem to be crashing some workstations. We're all running SW2016 SP5.


We've got some components that are mirrored sheetmetal components, whereby the mirrored components have been generated using the "mirror sheetmetal bodies" functionality when generating the mirrored part. These parts seem to be fine, although on some workstations at our organisation these mirrored part files will just crash solidworks when you try to open them (or any assembly file containing them).


They open fine on some workstations, but not others. The odd thing is that there's two or three parts we've seen this issue with and it doesn't seem to be the same workstations having trouble with each file. For example one part seems to crash only one of our workstations and works fine on others, while another seems to crash every workstation in the office except one.


Has anyone seen this before? I've tried everything I can think of, including saving the files rolled back, but the "bad" files seem to just crash SW regardless.
