Specific issue with Keyshot SolidWorks plug in
« on: August 26, 2019, 11:15:12 am »
We have a consistent issue with the Keyshot SolidWorks plug in. It was in SolidWorks 2018 and now SolidWorks 2019, in the current plug in (1.2) and the previous one (1.1) and apparent on all our machines when exporting to Keyshot .

Issues relate to parts that have been cut with an assembly cut in SolidWorks. When an assembly has assembly level cuts through parts, when that assembly is exported to Keyshot (via the plug in), the cut parts do not transfer to keyshot. If I export the assembly to STEP, and import the STEP file, all comes through, but we lose any face colours.

A related issue - we cannot directly open any SolidWorks 2019 file in Keyshot (we are using the latest SPs of both SolidWorks and Keyshot and the latest plug versions). This is how we used to get around the missing cut parts issue - by opening the file directly into Keyshot, but that fails now.

Any ideas? We cannot be the only ones seeing this.
