We have an assembly that consists of more than 4000 parts. When its put into a drawing and exported out on a few sheets (2-6) which is a building layout for a customer the file size is huge. Average size is around 14 MB. That size of file is not easily emailed.

I have drawn multi bodies in a single file and then separated the drawn parts each in a file after that i tried to convert each single body in to parasolid extension but it tells me (( the file could't be saved because the parts geometry is not valid for this type of save operation )) and when i try to save it as IGES it does nothing and no files is made , how can i fix this ?? I do not see any reason for it but any chance those are surface bodies?

My company uses Microsoft Word and Excel for internal documents that support the shop floor. We also have to have our quality department put a signature of approval on each document before released. In order for us to insert drawings, we have been using screen shots of our SolidWorks Drawings saved as .JPG files and then inserting them into the Word or Excel documents. However, we loose quality in the drawings and I want to know the best way to do this keeping the drawing integrity.

Here is a free macro, suitable for SW2005 and up, to export your models in Alias|Wavefront .obj format complete with .mtl and textures. The macro works with parts and assemblies and configurations.

Can we open "Staad pro" software file into SolidWorks? No, native staad files are not supported by Solidworks but you can export data from Staad in any of the common file formats like .x_t, iges, STL etc. for importing into Solidworks.

I have a copy of the Student edition of Solidworks 2016 SP2. I'm having an issue with Solidworks automatically HEAVILY reducing the resolution on the import of polygonized mesh geometry, specifically STL files. I previously used the 2015 Student edition and had zero problems with this - if the file had too many triangles Solidworks would simply crash.

When I export to .DXF from Soliworks my curves are being converted to a series of short line segments. I am trying to create a program to cut out text for a sign using CNC Plasma cutter. The only file type the machine accepts is DXF. The line segments show up on the cut metal and make for a really ugly cut.

I have a step file that I know contains multiple parts as well as points in a 3D sketch. When I open the step file in SolidWorks I can see the parts but the 3D sketch and points are not there. How can I get SolidWorks to recognize the 3D points? I know the 3D points are in the step file because a coworker can open them in AutoDesk Inventor.

I have been trying to open the attached STEP file with solid works 2017, It Crashes every time. I know the STEP file is good and I have tried other STEP files on the system and they have also crashed. It must be related to the software not the file. I have attached the Step and a screen shot of where the program hangs up.

Right now I have an assembly with part dimensions linked to an external equation text file. I'm trying to duplicate the entire assembly including the equation file and part references to this new file. No matter how I do this, each part within the assembly remains linked to the original equation file, not the new one that was created with the pack and go feature. I have also tried saving the assembly as a copy from solidworks, simply copying the folder outside of solidworks explorer, and some

I have been trying to import and open an autocad .dwg 3D file of furniture. I can open it without issue on the Autocad site using their viewer feature so I know the dwg is not corrupted. When I import the dwg into Solid Works I get a weird blue wireframe of the item. The wireframe is 3D but not usable.
