Inventor Fusion 2012

Just installed fusion 2012 (I'm using inventor suite 2011 as my Autodesk vendor is late giving us a copy od 2012).

I tried opening solid works models (from one of our subcontractors) - I click on Open, select the part I need and.... nothing. Fusion acts like it's opening something but than displays nothing.

 

Am I doing sth wrong? Is there a different way of loading SW files into fusion?

I haven't got SW to save the files in .stp or .iges - that's why I tried using fusion to oped.

 

I asked supplier to send me .stp files - now I can open it in inventor.

 

I'm affraid, in this case fusion was a waste of time.

Fusion can open SW files (.sldprt, .sldasm), and 12 other file types. Did you try opening the SW files in Fusion?

Can you share the files with us to confirm what may have been the problem?

here is one of the files.

In other threads on the same topic I read that fusion only supports SW files up to 2010. These may be latest files and therefore I can't open them using fusion. To me Fusion will be a great tool as long as it opens latest files. I know it can read the design intent (feature tree) and this may make it difficult to keep up with the competitors, but all I need is the ability to open the file and save it as .stp or .iges.
