I have SW2017 files with PMI data, I was unable to import through AP242 translator.
Reasons for failure may be
1) SW2017 may not have the capbility of translating through AP242 (its is working in viewers)
2) MAY be i useing wrong step214ug.def file
Request to guide me on the technical feasibility of Translating SW2017 PMI file to NX11
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you have the NX license that allows for STEP 242 import/export?
Did you check the import log file for errors?
Was anything imported (perhaps geometry but no PMI)?
Why not give the Solidworks to JT translator a try? We use it regularly to interact with NX.
It's an add-on product sold by SPLM and would appear inthe Solidworks ADD-Ins. It has it's own menu/toolbar that is not part of a "Save As" command.
When importing you step file i get PMI data on it.
i have used the step 242 import translator.
PMI is set to Model views, did you check your model views if there was PMI in that?
