Importing CAD fails - RS 6.03

Hi,

I'm trying to import a .SLDASM archive (SolidWorks), and RS only takes few components from the whole thing. It's suppose that if I import the main SLDASM archive, the subordinate SLDASM and SLDPRT archives will appear on the RS but it doesn't.

Example:

Opening the main archive with eDrawings


Same archive with RS


No FAIL log, and for RS everything is OK.

Any idea? Need help please. Thanks

    Have you tried using an interchange format like *.sat or *.step?

    STEP files are not longer available for free in Robot Studio. I asked to engineering dept for a Sat file but they told me solidwork crashes when it tries to convert...

    Can engineering export each main component/machine to sat?

    If Solidworks is crashing then there may be something in the file that is not quite right - hence RS not importing it correctly?

    They are actually splitting the whole cad in different small archives, as solids, but I think this is not the way. I mean, I have the SolidWorks license for RS and I was able to open, even edit, complete solidworks with no problems, and now with the 6.03 I have many of them. 

    What I am not sure about, is if the software update matters. 

    Anyway, why the eDrawings can open the SolidWorks perfectly and the RS not?

    Hi,

    You can try checking the "Convert CAD geometry to single part" box in the import dialog. That will cause the legacy CAD converter to be used.

    Hi,

    I've just tried it, with the same result. It only imports few parts of the whole cad group...  I don't know what else do...

    Are you running 64-bit RobotStudio? Please note that SolidWorks 2015 and later is only supported in 64-bit, not 32-bit.

    By the way, we are using SolidWorks 2016. What I don't understand is the official ABB Manual says it supports SolidWorks V18-ST7????

    That looks like a typo. RS 6.03 should support SolidWorks 2016.
