I've ran into an issues sharing CAD with a supplier who is using Solidworks 2016. The issue seems to be isolated to assemblies where casted/pre-formed parts are inserted/merged into the assembly and additional assembly-based features are used to complete additional “machining” on the casting or pre-form. When translating these assemblies, I think Solidworks does not have the ability to recognize Creo commands within an assembly. Thus, when the assembly is imported into Solidworks just the pre-form model shows up with no additional features.
We would like to avoid sending them translated files and would prefer they do direct imports into Solidworks pulling data off Windchill ProjectLink.
I was curious if anybody out there has experienced this problem before and might have recommendations on a fix. I'm not sure if there is something that I can do on my end to fix this issue.
