Hi all, I use McMaster's website to download their .SLDPRT files to put into assemblies. The problem arises when opening these parts. The company I work for has a custom Solidworks start template that must be used but any .SLDPRT files I download open with the default template. After learning that there is really no way to change the template once the part has already been created, I turned into looking at importing the part.
I have tried opening a new part with the correct custom template and then going to Insert > Part but this imports it as a solid body so all the features are lost. The same goes for saving it as an .IGS or something similar and going to Insert > Features > Imported as it opens as a solid body obviously. I know I can use the FeatureWorks Feature Recognize tool but this doesn't work well for more complex parts.
Is there any way I can get the part opened with my custom template while retaining all the features utilized in the creation of the part on McMaster's side of things?
