Solidworks assembly
« on: December 15, 2017, 04:23:23 am »
Hi I am trying to import my solidworks 17/18 assembly into keyshot and keep getting an error message saying 'fatal error reading 'startup.bip' it is truncated' i also get an error saying 'scene data is incomplete'
I have tried opening a part and a sub-assembly and both open fine, only the entire assembly has this issue
using keyshot 7.1 demo
I am very new to keyshot so there could be something simple i have missed, your help is greatly appreciated in this matter

As I know Solidworks 2018 files aren't supported in current version KS 7.1
So export a neutral format like step or parasolid (x_t) and import this into KeyShot.

Hope that helps

Cheers
