    Is it possible to get Solidworks to import a Step file with names other than imported_#?

    Carrie Ives

      I have received a step file from a company we are working with. If I import it in Solidworks, I get an assembly - imported_1.asm with parts imported_9, etc. (I have other imported files in this folder which is why the numbers are starting higher than 1). If I import the same step file into Pro/E, all of the parts in the assembly come in with names that look like they came out of the other CAD system (Keycreator). Is it possible to get Solidworks to bring in a step with names other than imported_...?

       

      Thanks,

      Carrie
