I was trying to import a (.sat) format file in SolidWorks.
The component was automatically getting scaled up than its normal size.
Can anyone suggest me a solution.
When you are importing files it is important to note that you need to select the type of file you are importing in the open file dialog box, this will cause the "Options..." button to appear. You can then select the units the imported file is using (meters, inches, etc.) as well as other import options. If you switch back to "All Files (*.*)" the "Options..." button will remain. I think the fact that it's not there to begin with is a minor bug, but I've never bothered to pursue the matter.
I'm thinking Ryan is probably right here. I've noticed this when importing some 2D stuff as well.
As a workaround,y ou can use the Scale tool post-import if you know that factor.
Excuse me. I meant Erik!
