version/service pack? have you checked the solidworks kb for known issues?
can you post some screenshots of where you're doing the importing? but at least you have a workaround
Sorry - 2014 SP2. Can't find anything in kb, but I didn't do an exhaustive search. I found out how to get the numbers in right (at least it looks right at this point.) If I convert the units of my data to SI units and bring them in to SI units in the Material database, it seems to work. When I switch over to other units in the database after bringing them in using SI units, everything looks fine.
Basically - don't use anything other than SI units when bringing in temp dependent curves. This must be a new bug. I find it hard to believe no one has run across this yet.
what happens if you copy/paste? i don't usually import which is why i may not have run into it before
I checked with Solidworks 2011 Sp5.0, 2013 Sp5.0 and 2014 Sp3.0. When your loading .dat or .csv file format for Temperature dependent material properties. It always takes your temperature as K not what your setting the Units from the drop down menu.
Secondly If your Copy and pasting your values then you can select any unit from the drop down menu, It will work.Thanks
