Does Solidworks 2013 even import UG or NX files anymore?
All I find in the Knowledge base is a link to an add-in that has to be bought?
Do I need to unload SW2013 and reload SW2012 to get it done?
Shows up on my 2013 installation.
The option shows up but the files from native nx do not open ...
What are your settings under Options in the Open dialog after you select the UG/NX File Type?
Can you post a part for us to try?
Do you know what version of NX the files were created in? Maybe it is the latest version of NX. Not sure what versions of NX SolidWorks 2013 can open. In the Help files for SW2013 they only mention up to NX 7.5.
The only option is to import tools.
I have never had an issue importing UG/NX files with Solidworks before.
How would I post a file for you to see?
You can use the Advanced Editor link on the upper right of the dialog box.
Maybe you can get Lenny Bucholz to open them for you and save out step or parasolid files.
Here is a sample file for you to try ...
Here's a parasolids file out of UG for you
That file opened perfectly. But the whole point of having Solidworks is that I can work with UG files, without having UG ...
Thank you for your help.
