SolidWorks >> AutoCAD/MDT

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

SolidWorks – System

SolidWorks - 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.
  • Under Output as the following options can be selected:
  • Solid/Surface geometry: the geometry will be exported as solid and surface bodies. This is the recommended option.
  • 3D curves: solid and surface bodies will be exported as wireframe entities and all 3D curves are also saved.
  • Export sketch entities: export all the items in 3D curves, plus all 2D and 3D sketches in the document.
  • Output coordinate system: by selecting default, no transformation matrix will be applied.
  • Export face/edge properties: Exports face and edge properties. Clear this option to improve export performance.
  • Split periodic faces: Splits periodic faces, such as cylindrical faces, into two. Splitting a periodic face can improve the quality of the export but can affect performance.

STEP File

  • STEP files using either version (CD or DIS) can be imported.
  • An adjustment of the STEP file extension is not necessary. 

AutoCAD/MDT - STEP Postprocessor

  • To import a STEP File you can choose Insert -> STEP... or the STEPIN in the command line.
  • Sub-elements of objects cannot be colored individually in the system.
  • Importing a product with multiple bodies, an assembly is created.
  • The import log file "filename.xli" gives further information.

AutoCAD/MDT – System

  • Shaded view is helpful and gives a first impression of the model quality.
