SolidWorks >> I-DEAS NX Series

The following settings are recommended up to SolidWorks 2016 and I-DEAS 12 NX Series.

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.
  • The STEP filename including path should not exceed 41 Characters.
  • The STEP filename should not contain: equal sign (=), colon (:), semicolon (;), asterisk (*), question mark (?), quotation marks (""), or comma(,);
  • There must be no spaces in the STEP filename.
  • The extension *.step of the STEP files must be renamed to *.stp.

I-DEAS NX - STEP Postprocessor

  • Save reminder (Options/Preferences/Data Management/ Save reminder every) should be turned off since the translator stops for every alike message.
  • In Menu STEP Export Settings AP214 several options for the used units of functionality can be set.
  • A change of the default options is only necessary in case of unsuccessful results.
  • If the import was successful, you will get a confirmation message.
  • Two logfiles are generated (filename.ipr and stepoi.ipr):
  • filename.ipr includes the import settings
  • stepoi.ipr includes an import log
  • The log files are written in the same directory as the STEP file.

I-DEAS NX - System

  • A part is automatically generated from the filename on import.
  • If the part name duplicates an existing part name, the part is renamed "Duplicate Part Name X", where X is a sequential number (X=0 for the first duplicate).
  • On each import, a new part is created even if the parts are identical. Therefore, the part names must be different.
  • Shaded view gives hints about possible defects.
  • Use the Automatic Stitch-mechanism for information about open gaps and remaining free edges. It is found in Master Surfacing Module in Menu Surface Operators.
  • If free edges are found in solid models, the Automatic Stitch-mechanism can be applied to merge free edges by changing default accuracy. For surface models, the edges that build the contour of the model remain free edges.
