    SolidWorks 2010 x64 Having problems importing STEP file

    Andrew Wilford

      I am trying to import the STEP file attached into SolidWorks 2010 x64. Only some of the part is being imported. It is a small test case that represents a short piece of wire/tubing with several bends. It has circular ends with elliptical cross-sections and cylindrical faces along the length of the wire. SolidWorks displays some jaggy geometry where the bends are. Does anyone with STEP/SolidWorks experience know what the problem is?

       

      Also, IDA-STEP displays the STEP file just fine, so I don't know if it is the geometry that is a problem or some setting in SolidWorks.

       

      Thanks,

      Andrew
