I have SP2 X7 and Solidworks 2013 installed. Still get this error. Cannot find Parasolid data in Solidworks file error.

 

Also get this error (see attached) with the new verify on X7 .

Download this zip file, extract it and right-click on the batch file and run as Administrator.

 

Your other error can be eliminated by adding a manual entry toolpath and selecting that when verifying.

SWDocumentMgr.zip

Ok thanks that fixed the Cannot find Parasolid data in Solidworks file error.

 

So I have to add a manual entry ever time to fix this error?

yes it has to do with tools that have undercuts, or shanks less than cutting diameter or flycutters.

How do I get rid of the same error "No parasolid data in SolidWorks file" with Mastercam X5?

Take the bat file mentioned earlier and change mcamx7 to mcamx5

 

@echo off

echo. This batch file is to fix this error.

echo. "Cannot find Parasolid Data in SolidWorks file."

pause

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\mcamx7\common\SWORKSDATA\SWDocumentMgr.DLL"

pause

Just came across this and it worked.

 

I am confused as to why, I am guessing it has to do with Administrative privileges

 

I did long hand this command and it failed to register the dll but the .bat file worked

My question is will this work for solid works 2014 sp0.

 

Thanks

 

No, that would be akin to trying to open a SWorks 2013 file in McamV9, the convertor did not exist,...

The confusion regarding the SWDocumentMgr.DLL is due to our installing (and registering) one copy of it, while SolidWorks will also install and register a copy of it. And they can be for different versions of SolidWorks.

 

One way (and not the only way) problems can arise is if you have, for instance, MCamX7 MU1 Beta installed (which registers a SW2014 SP0 version of that .DLL) but then repair/reinstall your SW2013 installation - which will register the SW2013 version of it. All of a sudden MCamX7 MU1 Beta will lose its ability to import SW2014 files.

 

Basically Mastercam will be able to import SW files from whatever version of SWDocumentMgr.DLL is currently registered.

So what do we have to do if the programmers do not have solid works installed on their systems they have X6 spo 3 and X7 spo 2.

And the designers have solid works 2014 spo 0 ? Do we need to copy the file from the designers system to the programmer computer?

 

Thanks in advance.

That will work...

When you get X7 Mu1, that will have it in there, too.

Does this fix also work on X6 MU3 also? I don't recall the last time I opened a SW file, but now I get the parasolid error the OP posted about. I really can't afford a MC breakdown right now.

Just to clarify, I have X6 MU3 and X7 SP2 installed, though I only use X6. I do NOT have SW installed.

OK, I tried this, replacing mcamx6, and I got confirmation that the .dll was registered but I still get the parasolid error. The SW files I'm trying to bring in are from SW2014 SP02 (64 bit). I couldn't ask for worse timing on this.

I was able to the copy the file over from my designer's seat of SW and all is well now.

Most ppl forget to run their command prompt as admin.

We are having a similar Parasolid Data error in mcamX7 mu2 when we attempt to open SW2014 files. I tried to use the fix provided by Glenn at the top of this thread but all I get is an error code 0x8007005 which appears to be related to permissions. I double checked that I had administrative priviledges but still no success.

 

We get *.sldprt files from a lot of different users so the temporary work around of using *.x_t files is not so convenient.

Hi

 

 So if I understand correctly, this isn't supposed to happen with the X7?

I have SW 2014 and X7 and I got this error this week.

 

Admittedly I did a huge clean-up of my computer and it's probably my own fault, but how do I fix it?

 

Thanks in advance.
