I can't open a 2D Autocad.dwg in Solid Edge

Solution Partner Experimenter Solution Partner Experimenter

When I try to open the 2D file from Autocad, Solid Edge give me a message " The translator fails when the selected Autocad file was opening". I tried to change the SEACAD.INI for another one from a laptop that works correctly, but I have the same problem again. I have also checked that the configuration and the place of seacad was the correct one.

 I have ST10 and the MP5 of Solid Edge. 

 

Thank you

Can you attach the DWG for checking ?

I believe no setting in the INI file should result in failure to translate.

Does the other laptop have same SE version and MP version ?

I think the .ini is for export, not for import.

@Joris, Pretty sure it's for both. Else why would there be an options dialog for both?

Hi @Dperezjorge

 

What I suggest is to use Draftsight Free to open the DWG file, and re-save it.

We have had a few issues with the translator failing due to a corrupt SEACAD.INI file.  To fix, we set it to the delivered SEACAD.INI in C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST10\Preferences\Translators folder, then make our Option changes and save it over whatever we had previously been using.
