Hi Can some one walk me through migrating Inventor to to Solid edge.

I am looking in to the possibilty of switching from inventor as it is too far behind in development in comparision to its competitors.

I tried to open the data migration tool but it said I am not licensed to use it

Hi there,

 

If memory serves, it is required to have Inventor installed on the same computer as the files being migrated into Solid Edge......and I'm not certain if this works in Student Edition.

 

Also be aware,....if you plan on moving to a commercial license of Solid Edge at a later date, then these files are unable to be opened.

hi Sean

I just want to test data migration to SE in case we get a opportunity to move from inventor to some software that works. so I can prove that migration may be hassle free. I am assuming we will lose the link between the drawing and the parts and the assembly mates might break.

 

Kind regards

 

Sammy

Hi Sammy,

 

I only have the Inventer View 2016 installed, in order to verify my import of Inventor files from a customer.

The "Data Migration" process is where Sold Edge requires the actual full Inventor application to be present.....I think it can then make certain automated translation settings for models, assemblies & drawings alike.

[I don't have Inventor, so have not done this full procedure, so making a few broad guesses here, sorry]

 

I'd also suggest [when normally I wouldn't] that you re-post your question to the general Solid Edge forum >here<, rather than the Student Edition one,...as I'm sure there are users present there that can provide much more accurate and detailed answers than me.
