AutoCAD/MDT >> SolidWorks

The following settings are recommended up to AutoCAD 2017/Mechanical Desktop 2017 and SolidWorks 2016

AutoCAD/MDT – System

  • Delete all non-referenced geometry.
  • Please activate all the layers with features to be exported.
  • Only standard colors are transferred. Sub-elements of objects cannot be colored individually in the systems.
  • Models are exported as an assembly.
  • Please execute "AMUPDATE" to update the model geometry.
  • Use AMREPLAY to regenerate the model step by step. This helps to identify corrupt features in the overall context of the design progress.
  • Use AMSANITYCHECK to count the numbers of shells within the model. Usually a MD model should contain only one shell. Exception: Intended voids.

AutoCAD/MDT - STEP Preprocessor

  • To export a STEP File you can choose File -> Export -> STEP or the STEPOUT in the command line.
  • The STEP standard can be chosen in the OPTIONs menu.
  • The translator uses a default file extension of *.stp when processing STEP file names entered on the command line.
  • The default setting for STEP export is AP214. 

STEP File

  • No adjustment is necessary.

SolidWorks - STEP Postprocessor

  • To import a STEP file go to File -> Open… and select the file.
  • Click on Options and the Import Options dialog box appears. Under General options following can be selected:
    • Surface/solid entities: import surface and solid entities.
    • B-Rep mapping: import the model using boundary representation. If not selected, SolidWorks attempts to knit surfaces into solids.
    • Knit surfaces: imports as surfaces and tries to knit imported surfaces.
    • Do not knit: imports as surfaces without knitting them.
  • Free point/curve entities: imports free points and curve entities.
    • Import as sketches
    • Import as 3D curves
    • Import multiple bodies as parts: Imports a multibody part as an assembly document. The multiple bodies are imported as part documents contained in the assembly. With this option cleared the multibody part imports as a part document that contains multiple imported bodies.
  • Perform full entity check and repair errors: default is selected
  • Customize curve tolerance: needed tolerance for the import can be entered here.
  • Map configuration data (for STEP only): Imports STEP file configuration data plus geometric data. To import only the geometry this option must be left unchecked.
  • The other available options are not applicable for the STEP import.
  • Recommended options are to check Surface/solid entities, Try forming solids and Perform full entity check and repair errors.

SolidWorks – System

  • Import errors are indicated in the history tree. By mouse right click over the model and choosing What’s wrong?, a detailed information will be displayed.
  • Doing a Geometry check, the errors will be indicated in the model.
