Hi @Tushar,

 

This file is created and saved from solidworks 2000 or lower version.

 

could that be the reason?

Hi @ISL

The STEP file mentions SW2017, though this could be a wrong interpretation and misleading.

Hi there @ISL,

 

For the SLDASM file to import correctly, there needs to be all of the part files in the same folder on the PC also.

As @hawcad & @Tushar, I also encountered the error, and read the log file created at the attempt.

 

However, I tried opening it in my OLD version of Rhinoceros and was able to open the file, probably due to some element types that are not compatible through this format. I was able to save the file out and then import into Solid Edge as an assembly, and due to your version of SE, I have saved it to a Parasolid [v28] format....as attached.

Hi @Tushar

 

your statemnt may be correct.

 

The reason I said It could be SW2000 or below is.. I requested for .SLDASM format of the same file from my vendor.

When I try to open the file, the error is "This file cannot be translated because it was created prior to solidworks 2000. Either save the file in the parasolid format or save in a newer version of solidworks."

 

I have attached .SLDASM format of the same file.

Sheik

Hi @ISL

 

 

but an ASM only will not bring any proper result.

You also will need the parts which are in that ASM

Hi @hawcad

 

Ya I understand that. As mentioned by other mates as well.

 

I will ask for the subparts and assembly from my vendor.
