          It may be hard to say if this is a bug or error. Can you attach the file to check.

           

          Also if you remove the relation from that line (removed the on edge relation) then what happens.

              hello Deepak,

              sorry, probably I can't post the file.. but I can tell you that:

               

              - If I remove the "on edge" relation ( coming from the "convert entities command") the error disappears

               

              - seams like the problem is related to an arc of circle with the center located along a reference geometry: axis (the blue vertical line)

               

              - actually the problem is not related to the "convert entities" command... to make the error appear is just enough create a line with an edge coincident to that arc circle center and then make the line vertical (if I make it horizontal the problem doesn't appear! ... :/ ). Here the figures:

              to me seams like it's a real solidworks bug ..
