I would like to know if it's possible to import a DXF files in Solidworks in an existing sketch (existing part). I was able to import a DXF files in a sketch, but it always create a new part. When you are in a part, select the relevant plane or face which you want the DXF to be positioned, and navigate to Insert> DXF/DWG this will open a dialog box allowing you to navigate to the relevant file. click ok and then follow the usual DXF/DWg import wizard, this should then import the DXF file as a

When I export a simple part to STL, the origin becomes located in an odd spot, and not where I specify with a custom coordinate system. The images below demonstrate the problem. The blue dot represents the exported STL's origin.

Hope you're well. I've exported 3D PDF files previously for clients who can't view CAD models, without any issues- UNTIL NOW. Usually I build an assembly in SolidWorks and save to a 3D PDF.

I have run into a problem on just my machine where if I import an stl file I cannot change the view settings to see the wireframe. on any of our other installs it works fine. any ideas on what setting might be to allow me to view the wireframe? The only view I can see is shaded, will not change to hidden line removed / visible or wireframe. Open up your body list in the featuretree and see if the bodies are set on some other display state then default

Importing DXF/PCB data extremely slow/crashes We work a lot with gerber data from PCB's. This means that we load in a gerber file into a different program to convert it into a DXF.

Just wanted to post a follow up on export options. I recently started a job where most of the mechanical and electrical drafting is done in Solid Works. I'm the video/marketing guy and I needed to get the models into Adobe CC, and Cinema 4D.

I am new to #TASK and I was trying to use it to convert a bunch of .stp files I have into SolidWorks files. Problem is that it seems only able to find .stp files if it already has a .err file to go along with it... which gets created when I throw it into SolidWorks. This is rather annoying since the whole point is that I want my .stp files brought into SolidWorks without me having to babysit it. Does anyone know how to make this work?

So SolidWorks is stuck in a loop after I tried importing an STL file. The popup just keeps showing up regardless of how many times you press ok. The STL file can be shared directly if needed, the file exceeds the allowed limit of this forum. (45mb)

I wanted to export my Soildworks CAD model to Cinema4D. I tried .stl, but the result was very bad. I searched on the internet for solutions and found that the best format will be .obj. I switched my ScanTo3D on, then went to Save As -> ScanTo3D(.obj), but it gave an error saying "No available entities to process through WRL".

I ran into an issue today while saving a relatively small assembly to a 3D pdf. There are some surfaces, but otherwise it's fairly simple solids. I saved a 3D pdf the other day of this assembly and it worked flawlessly. I've made some model changes since then and now when I save a 3D pdf some of the parts are hidden by default in the pdf.

I'm trying to export curves that are projected onto a curved surface to serve as a tool path for a vendor using MasterCam. For the life of me I CANNOT get SW to output just the curves no matter how many toggles I'm switching in the export options. I've tried Step, IGS, and parasolid with no luck, they all just come up empty.

So I have tried importing many different inventor files, converted them to a Solidworks part, STEP file, IGS etc. but it won't recognize the features. It just displays the part as one solid body. My recognize feature option is greyed out as well. Anyone know a workaround?
