When importing SOLIDWORKS or STEP files the error message "The CAD interoperability libraries were unable to be located" appears

Issue:

Some users encounter the error message "The CAD interoperability libraries were unable to be located" when attempting to import CAD data. 

Applies to:

  • nTopology 2.19
  • nTopology 2.20
  • nTopology 2.27
  • nTopology 2.28
  • SolidWorks
  • STEP
  • CAD

Cause:

This error message occurs when there is a conflict or missing file relating to nTopology's translators.

Solution:

We are still addressing this issue. As a workaround, try exporting a Parasolid (.x_t) from your CAD tool. Parasolid will always yield more reliable results than a STEP or native CAD files.
