can not open step file
Yes, Inventor create a newer version of AP214 which Solidworks don't understand.
Turn on 3D Interconnect, dissolve it if you need to.
..very interesting!?... yeah, what Frederick said...
Found out when I was testing IV2020. Posted in IV forum. Got an answer same day.
I didn't try SW2020.
I tried 2019 SP5.
LOL!... was not going to save.. but thought, hmm.. I wonder if this will save?....and I got this error message!??? WTH!?
Oh, I didn't try to save.
Save as STEP? x_t?
Hey Fred,.. it works in 2019sp5 but not 2020sp3... so, from what I can find,.. it seems,.. SW2020 does not like my Prt or Asm Templates?
2020 can't open with 3Dinterconnect off.
No problem saving undissolved assembly.
No problem saving dissolved, with internal parts.
External parts is the problem, same file name.
SW try to save the same sub-assembly out instead of using the one saved.
I'll contact VAR.
When I have time, and pandemic is over, and I'm retired, and .....
correct, w/3D interconnect Off, that step does NOT open in 2019sp5 and 2020sp3... (mine just does not save because there is a conflict with my templates)
