How to convert a lots of 3D DWG ino STEP or Solidworks files?!
I have a bout 500 3d DWG files that I need to convert to Step or Solidworks file, is there any solution that I could automatically convert them, and save a lots of time?!
for the fact I knoe that solidworks have Taskplanner but it does not work perfectly in my case, All the out put are in 2D!
I had to convert a lot of 3D DWG files into SolidWorks files once. I had to do each one manually though (it was years ago). I do remember that none of the "normal" file formats would work though. I ended up having to open the DWG in AutoCAD (R14?), execute an explode command on the entire entity, export it as an ACIS/SAT file, then import it into SolidWorks.
The process took forever and was very boring. I tried to do ten at a time, then take a break. Otherwise it was easy to fall asleep and make mistakes.
The only way you can do that is to put all of those DWG's into one DWG file and then export it as a single stp. file. Then turn the solids in that step file into a solidworks assembly and have it make all of those individual selected parts sldprt files. I haven't used solidworks in a while but I remember having to this for a project. If that doesn't work, you may be stuck doing each on individually.
