Creo export parasolid to open solidworks

Hello,

 

I have a part with different colors, then export to parasolid, step and solidwks.

When Solidworks open the parasolid file all colors turn to gray, but in the step and solidwks files all colors are show. 

Anyone knows why this happens?

Re: Creo export parasolid to open solidworks

Hi this is a classic use case of data exchange.

 

one thing that you need to understand, and not underestimate, is that when saving to a different file format, transformation occurs meaning that the color information can be part or not of the file saving option. You also need to keep in mind that file reading depends on the software vender too.

 

ie there are 3 stages in data translation:

  1.  export capabilities
  2. transformation capabilities
  3. import capabilities

each stage introduces instability and depends on the software vendor and the file format definition.  

 

With the above this is no wonder that the result may vary.

 

The best practice, as far as my experience can tell, is to try all options.
