SOLIDWORKS Models

Does anyone has already tryied to use SOLIDWORKS models in thingworx Studio?

7 REPLIES 7

Hello Mr. Bourelly,

I have tried to import a SolidWork part file (.SLDPRT) in ThingWorx Studio 8.1.3.

I didn't have any issue, it has worked like a charm.

The file size of my example is 17 Mb.

I can open this file in SolidWork 2017 but it has been created in a previous release.

I don't remember which to be honest.

Do you have any issue to import SolidWork file ?

Best regards,

Samuel

Yes, no issue.

put the assembly as a .zip inside studio.

Hello guys,


Thanks for your reply, I did some new tests today and I got always the same error msg which is:

     "sw2pvdirect Error:1: Failed to load Solidworks model [-1019]"

I'm using thx Studio version 8.1.3 (8.1.3.2556), my SLD part is from SOLIDWORKS 2017 version.

This version seems to be not supported, I found this information in the  sw2pvdirect.pvr file, where in line 4 it's written "adapter/version=Supports Solidworks 2015 and prior"..

I just make a test with a part in version 2015, it's working...

I'm not lucky, my customer has a 2017 version...

thanks again

Lionel

You  could still take an interchange format like step or iges.

Yes, it was my idea, I have requested a Step file to my customer, but the Step file created by SolidWorks 2017 SP5 seems to be not supported ????

As I said, I'm not lucky, In attachement the Step file....

Thanks.

The file works fine!

just add the .step file into the resources - it will be transformed to pvz in the background 🙂 Rerfresh the resources and it's in within a second.

Hello,

Another solution is to use Creo View Adapters 4.1 F000.

It supports SolidWork 2017 as described at the page 5 of  software matrix :

https://support.ptc.com/WCMS/files/172766/en/CVAdapters4.1_-8Sept.2.pdf

  •   Do you have access to it in PTC Download page with your account ?

By the way, in ThingWorx Studio 8.1.3, Creo View Adapters 4.1 A000 is embedded and use in background to convert SolidWork file to pvz file.

So, I presume that R&D will include this new version of Creo View Adapters in a future release of ThingWorx Studio.

Best regards,

Samuel
