    Rebuild errors after loading step file

    Cory Riddell

      I'm unable to open this step file in SolidWorks without a rebuild error. Looking at the model, I can see that one of the faces is missing. I am able to open this file in other solid modeling packages without errors.

       

      Since other programs can read the file, I suspect it may be a SolidWorks bug. If there is a workaround, I would love to hear what it is.

       

      SW does create an err file that looks like:

       

      Error: Entity type not supported.

      STEP-in did not complete successfully.

       

      Error: Entity type not supported.

      STEP-in did not complete successfully.

      Surfaces successfully processed into a solid body.

      STEP-in completed.Surfaces successfully processed into a solid body.

      STEP-in completed.

      Error: Unable to create solid from trimmed surfaces.

      STEP-in did not complete successfully.
