How do I go about converting my sheet metal part into one solid body?
Save as part
The thing is, I need to open it in Inventor and right now that's not going as planned.
What version of SolidWorks?
What version of Inventor?
SolidWorks release date is after Inventor release date - so Inventor will only read SolidWorks a release back.
For example, Inventor 2014 will read SolidWorks 2013, but not 2014.
Save as Parasolid or STEP if you do not meet those conditions.
If you still have trouble - can you attach the file here?
BTW - Inventor does have a Convert to Sheet Metal tool.
I never used inventer, is there an option "convert to sheet metal" in invertor, if so save as iges or step or parasolid and open it in inverntor
