If you’re interested in working with other data from dumb solids to other native CAD files it’s worth taking a look. I had a blast writing it and you can check it out here: https://www.engineersrule.com/coping-with-non-solidworks-data/ Brandon Nelms Application Engineer Computer Aided Technology, LLC

Our first step is to use the “Delete Face” command and delete the fillets and other areas of bad geometry.  Once we have done this we will create new surfaces using “Planar Surface” and “Extruded Surface”. Using the “Trim Surface” […]
