I've been trying to import a Solidworks file (.SLDASM) into AutoCAD 2013. The documentation says this is a valid file type, but it doesn't seem to work The import process completes, but the following message appears: “Import failed. The specified file is invalid or unsupported.” Anybody know of a solution?
from the help menu:
IMPORT supports the following versions of Solidworks® files:
The following data types are translated:
...also, you must have all of the sldprt files that go along with the sldasm file.
Thanks all for your assistance. I do not know what version of Solidworks was used to generate the model. I will try to get the other support files that go with the sldasm file. If I can do that, do I need to do any other prep before running the Import command? Do the other files just need to go in the same folder as the sldasm file?
Do the other files just need to go in the same folder as the sldasm file?
Wouldn't that make logica sense?
Actually a sldasm file is little more than a list of hyperlinks to the individual part files, so the file structure should be the same.
The source should use Save As > Pack and Go to package all the files. If all the files were in one folder they could just send you the folder with it's contents without using Pack and Go. In any case - they should alreay know this information.
Same issue, new year. We are operating AutoCAD 2014 and are having the same issue as Andrew_Roe. Does anyone know the supported Solidworks revisions in AutoCAD 2014?
Is it the same as AutoCAD 2013 which only supported Solidworks 2003-2010?
