When importing SOLIDWORKS or STEP files the error message "Unable to translate any data from selected part" appears.

Follow

Issue:

  • On CAD import the user encounters the error message "Unable to translate any data from the selected part."

Applies to:

  • nTop 2.19, nTop 2.20
  • SolidWorks, STEP

Cause:

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

Solution:

No known solution at this time. 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.
