I know this isn't a Strata forum. I did want to see if anyone had any experience exporting solidworks file types into strata? I am having trouble bringing up models in that program. Thanks.
I expect you want to get the appearance of the model, not just the 3d representation, and if you have material or decals applied, that makes it more difficult.
VRML is the only built in export that can export to a triangulated surface that supports some attributes. You could try Neil Larsens OBJ exporter for SolidWorks. Free Solidworks OBJ Exporter v2.0
In general, appearances and material/texture settings do not transfer well, if at all, from CAD applications, so its likely you would have to recreate some, if not all in another application.
Thanks Chris. This is actually why I am wanting to export to Strata to create the surface's and do the rendering inside that program. I will check out your stuff. Thanks for the help.
