Hi all,

I'm new to the forum but have excelled with SW14 during my time in college here at UA, and I have tried every method possible to get this to work. I have both NX9.0 and SolidWorks 2014 running on my home PC. The university provides SW, and my Senior Design client provides NX9.0 PLM. What I've been doing is exporting STEP 203 files from NX to SW so I can quickly design our additions to the chassis that are defined in the scope of our project, but recently, for whatever reason, I'm unable to get STEP 203 or 214 files to open correctly in SW.

For instance, only 1 component out of 30 or so will be displayed in the tree or graphics area.


I've tried selecting "try to form solid-bodies" as well as "do no knit" and various other combinations...

I've also tried a large number of combinations for the NX STEP translator, Export and Save-As options.


I'm stuck and we're running out of time. Graduating August 1!


Thanks in advance!
