Imported step file doesnt show colors Recently I have tried to import several .step files of Printed Circuit Board Assemblies into SolidWorks that were created by our Electrical Engineer in Altium. When the file is imported, everything goes as expected except the apperance of the PCA is entirely gray (the default SolidWorks gray) instead of the colors I am expecting.

I need to open some DWG drawings of a building so that i can model the the space in Solidworks. I can get them open, but as soon as i try to edit or take dimensions Solidworks tends to crash. Is there any known reason for this?

Recently, I had to reinstall Solidworks Electrical on my machine due to another program that was conflicting with it. Now that the conflicting program has been uninstalled, and Solidworks Electrical reinstalled, I need to bring the previous project into the new environment. Unfortunately, one of the reasons why Solidworks Electrical needed to be reinstalled was because the archive function wasn't working. Because of this, I only have the .ewg files that are connected to the schematics for my

We use to use Camworks font for cutter paths for text on blocks. At this point this is not working as the export file does some interesting things to the text in the dxf for 2011 version. What other ways are there to accomplish cutter paths in Solidworks? I have a request to get this fixed but that must be low on the list for priority's.

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?

I am trying to import a Inventor Assembly as a Feature (Opening the .aim file format directly into Solidworks prompts you to choose between 'Feature' and 'Body.') but it will not copy over the iProperties i have created within Inventor. However if i open the Assembly as a Body (Sub Assembly with an assembly) it will copy across the custom iProperties? Am i missing something, why will it copy for one and not the other?

I have an electrical enclosure that I'm trying to punch holes into for a new assembly. To start, I downloaded the attached files from the supplier website. I opened one in Solidworks, saved it as a SLDASM, and tried to make an extruded cut on a side wall. The extrude and sketch are clearly shown on the feature tree, but the extrude is not visible on the 3D model.

I am a Technical Writer and have to export a lot of drawings from SW to Adobe Illustrator. We used SW2012 and Windows7 in our company, and I always used the function "Edit" > "Copy to Adobe Illustrator". It worked fine.

In the Solidworks 2018 Beta, it was possible to open a JT (DirectModel) file into Solidworks. It could not be updated, but at least it could be opened. At that time I submitted a beta ticket, which was logged as SPR1035462: Native SW components mated to imported JT models do not adjust positioning when JT model is updated.

I have a situation where I need my drawings to match the ones from work. I use SW 2017, they use Inventor. I'm talking about the title block and bom. Is there a way to import the sheet format from Inventor to SW without having to manually make the sheet format in SW?

Importing large downloaded models, without downloading secondary software. I have downloaded a model from Thingyverse, but now need to scale it down and split it so it can be 3D printed. I can import it as either a part or a .stl file, but no matter which one I open, I can't then edit it in anyway or measure it.

our systems engineer took it upon himself to upgrade to 2018 without telling or asking anyone (we work at a small company). now all of his designs are saved in 2018, but us with 2017 can't open his files unless they are converted to .STEP (losing all feature tree history... you all know the score). i just briefly looked at his system in the "save as..." dialog but couldn't find any options to save as a legacy type solidworks file. of course, he said that 2018 files were backwards compatible with

I need to convert my Solidwork assembiles into a 3D step file to send to our customers for them to be able to use in their 3D program but for proprietary reason and because of the size of the step files, I don't want them to have the ability to see/modify the complete build structure of our assemblies. Is there an easy way to create a 3D step file of my assembly that will convert it into a single entity (part) so that it can't be modified and they don't see all of the components used in the
