CATIA V5 (Dassault) >> SolidWorks

The following settings are recommended up to CATIA V5R24 (V5-6R2014) (Dassault) and SolidWorks 2016.

CATIA V5 (Dassault) – System

  • Model should be cleaned of all unlinked information
  • Delete unused elements from the NOSHOW area.

CATIA V5 (Dassault) - STEP Preprocessor

  • Recommended settings in the STEP export options (Tools -> Options...-> Compatibility…-> STEP) :
  • Choose the respective Application Protocol (AP): AP203, AP242 or AP214 (recommended).
  • When exporting assemblies choose One Step File, because CC6 (External references) is not supported from all STEP processors.
  • Do not export the NO SHOW area (set Export all entities: off).
  • Optionally define the Header of STEP file.
  • Validation properties are supported.
  • If export a CATProduct:
  • The option "work with cache system" has to be switched off (Tools -> Options -> Infrastructure -> Cache Management)
  • The root node has to be selected, otherwise only the node of the CATPart will be exported

STEP File

  • An adjustment of the STEP file extension is not 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.
    Try forming solids
    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.
