To create a DriveWorks 3D File from a SOLIDWORKS model the model must be saved as a DriveWorks 3D File
The File Name will be automatically populated with the name of the SOLIDWORKS model the file is being created from.
This can be changed by typing a new name in the File Name field.
To enable the DriveWorks 3D File format to be listed in the SOLIDWORKS> File> Save as option:
Considerations for the SOLIDWORKS model that is to be saved as a DriveWorks 3D File:
Any components that are suppressed in the SOLIDWORKS Model being converted will not be available in the DriveWorks 3D File.
Any Components that are hidden in the SOLIDWORKS Model being converted will be shown in the DriveWorks 3D File.
When exporting a SOLIDWORKS Assembly, with Sub-Assemblies and Parts that have configurations, the file will be exported with the geometry shown in the last saved configuration of the parts and sub-assemblies. This may not be the same geometry shown in the Top Level SOLIDWORKS Assembly.
To ensure the exported assembly matches the native assembly save all parts and sub-assemblies in the configuration to be used in the assembly.
To create a drive3D file from other formats (Stereo Lithography (STL) files, open DriveWorks 3D Viewer.
