I'm having trouble opening this step file in Inventor 2013. I get the below error message which is what you usually see when you try to open an Inventor file that was saved in a newer version, but why would I see it with a step file? If I try more than once Inventor crashes. I tried opening it in 2014 and it opens fine; I then tried saving it back to a new step file from 2014 and still encountered the same error in 2013. Has anybody else encountered this problem before or open the file in 2013?
Solved! Go to Solution.
sometimes i get that error too, this code fixes it for me weird.
My_extension_1 = InputBox("Enter Extension", "Type in the Extension you Want", "Fill in Extension ex: .stl .jpg .pdf") 'My_extension_2 = ".pdf" ThisDoc.Document.SaveAs(ThisDoc.ChangeExtension(My
_extension_1), True) 'UPDATE: Using the line Of iLogic code above will save the files in the same folder As the 2D drawing. If you want To save it In a different folder you can predifine the location Using the following: 'choose the place to save at? Possibly ask to save? 'strFolder = "D:\files\" & ThisDoc.FileName(False) 'without extension 'ThisDoc.Document.SaveAs(strFolder & (".jpg") , True) 'ThisDoc.Document.SaveAs(strFolder & (".pdf") , True) MessageBox.Show("All file formats saved", "File Save")
does this open up for you?
i saved this in 2014
Go and open new .ipt
go to manage tab, import and find your file and import it.
might need to export as iges or something else untill issue is resolved.
I worked for a company one time that had issues exporting .dxf one time. I fixed that by reregestering the files. Ill attach something here soon.
Correct me if im wrong, you guys just recently switched to 2014? I know we had issues similar to this exspecially with Vault :/
