Learn about the process of importing a Parasolid file.
- When importing complex geometry into Solidworks…you're going to run across Parasolid files.…Now these files are the most complex of the universal…or the vendor neutral file types…that you're going to run across.…These can typically be used for assemblies…that are very large or small.…And are often used to be used to be sent out to CNC machines…and other numerically controlled machines…that can automate manufacturing processes.…Let's go ahead and look at an example of importing…a Parasolid file.…
So, I'm going to go up to my open dialog box.…Navigate to the file where I have the Parasolids located.…So, in this folder I've got two versions of parasolids,…the XB and the XT.…Typically, when dealing with Solidworks…we're going to use the XT version.…So, I'm going to click on that version.…Now you'll notice, I don't have any options here available…or anything that I can change.…But if I go to all files dialog dropdown.…Then click on Parasolid.…
You'll see that first,…all of my other file types have gone away,…expect for the Parasolids XT and XB…
