Export STEP file from Creo to Solidworks

Export STEP file from Creo to Solidworks

Hi guys,

I have received a STEP file that had been exported from Creo. It is going to be used to run a flow simulation in Solidworks.

When I import the file into Solidworks and run geometry check I get plenty of zero thickness geometry errors.

Do I have to fix all the errors on part level or is there any faster way to handle the problem?

Why do I see so many zero thickness errors after importing the file into Solidworks?

Thank you in advance for your help!

RE: Export STEP file from Creo to Solidworks

STEP is a neutral format of geometry data and supported by many software applications. You can try to load the STEP file using another CAD/CAE application, to see if the zero thickness exists.

You also can double check your thickness definition from the Creo, and set a thickness value to the specific bodies if the zero thickness indeed exists.
