Solid Edge >> SolidWorks

The following settings are recommended up to Solid Edge ST 8 and SolidWorks 2016

Solid Edge – System

  • To make a geometry check in a Part go to Inspect -> Geometry Inspector…, select the part and click on the Go button.
  • To make a collision checks in Assemblies go to Inspect -> Check Interference….

Solid Edge - STEP Preprocessor

  • To export a STEP file choose File -> Save as..., as file type choose STEP-Format (step, stp) and go to Options. A new dialog box appears.
  • Choose AP214 class VI for the STEP export (AP203 is default).
  • Depending on the model, choose one or more of the following options for the export:
  • Export Solids: it specifies that you want all existing design geometry as volume bodies exported (recommended).
  • Export Sheets: it specifies that you want all existing design geometry as sheet metal bodies exported.
  • Export Wires: it specifies that you want all existing design geometry as wireframe bodies exported.
  • Tube Centerlines: it specifies that you want only design geometry exported, which is visible in the part or the assembly.
  • Export Displayed Only: it specifies that you want only active model geometry and design geometry exported, which are visible in the part or in the assembly.
  • A log file can be created by selecting Generate Log File. This one will be placed in the same directory of the STEP file. 
  • The option Export Units specifies the units of measurement for the part being exported. The standard is millimeters.
  • User info like Author, Organization, etc. can be optionally added.

STEP File

  • An adjustment of the STEP file 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.
  • 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.
