Convert a Part

By Leigh Falls on 10 Dec 14:37 3 answers 0 comments


My supplier sent me a model of a part in solidworks. i currently use Sw2010 but this part must have been made in a more modern version.

was hoping some kind sould could open this part save it as a stp file and ping it back to me please if it isnt too much hassle? or i am open to other solutions!

note i have no need to amend the part

thanks in advance

    Your supplier only sent the assembly file, and it can not be opened properly without the supporting part files.
    The file was last saved in SW 2014. I've attached a screenshot, but can't create a Step file without the separate part and sub-assembly files.

    you need a step file if going from newer version to older version of solidworks. also if you get an assembly without part files you cant do anything.
