Hi..actually i am downloded one assembly step file from an organization website i want to change some features and dimensions is there any way to edit...?
Use move face or move body options. Add/remove material using extrude/cut extrude, etc.
You could try feature recognition on the parts. This works best with prismatic shapes. Otherwise you might have to use features such as move face to edit.
Thank u Deepak & martin for giving reply to my question, I tried feature recognition its not working ..ok I ill another suggestion wt u people are given.
I have another doubt wt abt if we download step format part
Can you upload the part you are working with so we can take a look at it. Also what version of S.W. are you working in.
I have a samiliar issue with import a step file.
I download a step file which is an assembly, when I opened it in solidworks, it shows many import bodies in the feature manager area, how can I adjust the mates in some import bodies?
by the way, I download the step file from 25 mm (0.98") Motorized Translation Stage
It's still a dumb format, but why would you download the STEP file when a SW file is available?
thanks for your input.
I first actually download the the solidworks file, but I could not make any mate for these import solid. it was not an assembly. then I heard that for the Step file, I could to adjust the mate exist in the file, still no luck.
What I have done in cases like this is to make two configurations of the part file. In the first configuration suppress all of the moving bodies and keep the stationary bodies. In the second configuration do the opposite to keep only the moving bodies. Now you can make an assembly with two instances of that part, each with a different configuration. Then mate them and it will be movable.
Both the SW & STEP files are imported as multi-body parts.
You will have to use the Move/Copy Bodies tool (within the part) to reposition the bodies to suit
Use the Save Bodies function to create separate parts in an assembly, then Float the parts you want to be movable, and finally add mates to constrain the movable parts.
