Re: saving as .RFA (REVIT) option is removed from SolidWorks 2019 SP0, why? Jive Software Version: 2018.10.0.1_jx, revision: 20181102150941.22e8dc7.release_2018.10.0-jx

I used SolidWorks to do design work. The product which is given to customers are drawings generated by SolidWorks. Several customers have asked that the drawings be provided as AutoCAD dwg drawings. This is where I have a problem, the "save as dwg" feature of SolidWorks 2010 is limited in what it can do.

I'm new to the forum, I am a MechEng placement student with a few years experience with solidworks, usually I just browse the forum for answers but for this one I can't see any relevant questions. So my issue is this, I am using a PLM type system in which I can filter by certain part properties. For example I can filter by properties of the part. for example "Classification" or "Template used" - as shown below.

My goal is to have .step214 file in color of my scanned product. Exporting with Einscan in .step is not possible. Scanned the product in color and saved it in several formats, with texture.

When I try to save an assemly as STEP-file, i get the error message: Unable to open error log file to write. Make sure the disk is not write-protected. I get this error message also when i try to save it on a different disk. And i only got the error when saving as STEP-file.

Is it possible to have a macro that I can run to take the drawing, change the configuration in the view, rebuild and save the drawing as a dxf using the configuration name as the file name and then go on with the next configuration and do the same so I get a dxf drawing for all the configurations? There is a macro available that can create DXF file from the part itself (e.g. for sheet metal parts). So what exactly you need from the drawing as DXF.

The machine only seems to understand the DXF if it is saved directly from the sketch after doingspline tools > fit spline. If I extrude the profile and save the face as a DXF then the lines become smooth but then our CNC machine doesn't understand the file so this is not an option.

Thank you for your response! I actually would like to export with a different coordinate system as seen below.When exporting to this to a step file and saving it under the new coordinate system, the origin tends to moveI'm just wondering why this happens? Or if there's a way of keep the origin put? Thanks again!

I'm having trouble in opening an *.igs file from a 3D scan. SW will recognize the file type and open it but there is nothing on the screen. There is likely a feature or some other item not turned on so I'm looking for a bit of help on recognition of the file.

So, I've read through and tried the "solution" for the other discussion in regards to saving a PDF and had no luck. My problem is when i try and save a drawing file as a PDF, the file saves but when I try opening it, it's simply a blank white page. I can open previous PDFs that I've saved so its seems to be on the Solidworks side of things. If i click on print preview, i get the error shown in the attached image.

For some reason, my Save As PDF doesn't do anything. It accepts my input and lets me change my file name and such and navigate to a directory, and then I click OK. Then nothing is output to the directory.....:/

I imported a bunch of .stp files with 3D interconnect enabled before i realized it was causing a problem for me. This created parts that have two "halves" or lines in the center of the parts. Is there a way to get rid of the lines or do I need to re import the parts with 3D interconnect disabled?

I am trying to export a large amount of folders containing SW formats. I would like to save them to .dwg and .step. A SW windos pops up and.. thats all, I can't save via the file via the file tab.

I drag in step file and it doesn't load the file but when I do file open it does because of that my import step macro doesn't work too. solidworks 2018 sp4 I have been trying step files from different customers. it is weird when I do the file open and try drag in, it works. I need to do one time file open after opening solidworks.

I can manually associate these to SolidWorks so they open in SolidWorks with a double-click (which is much more convenient than doing file > open > .stp > browse > select > open). But why do I need to do that? Why aren't they associated by default?

I'm just starting with SW. When I try to open a .ipt or .iam file, I get an error message saying the file was not found, invalid, locked or an incompatible type. What might the problem be?

Houw can I save only selected parts from various sub-assemblies from the main assembly? And eventually export them to an STL document. I can't export the whole document, because it is too large.
