    Importing 28mb stp file to 2014 Import Diag issues?

    Amber Brooks

      I'm importing a 28mb .stp file to solidworks 2014.

      The part imports ok but the import diagnostics just wont work.

      Are there tricks and settings in the File Open Options menu that can help to get a better result?

       

      There are like 5,000 trimmed surfaces in this part.

       

      We have just upgraded our workstations also and it just cranks aways on the import diag.

      We are running windows 7 Pro 64 bit Intel Xeon Quad Core 3.7GHz with 32Gb of ram of an SSD drive. Video is Nvidia Quadro K4000 3GB dedicated.

       

      Does anyone else import super complex assemblies like this?

       

      Thanks.
