No parasolid data in SolidWorks file


Recommended Posts



When i try to open .SLDPRT files with Mastercam, I get the Error: "No parasolid data in SolidWorks file".


System: Windows 10, Solidworks Explorer 2016, Solidworks eDrawings Viewer 2016 & Mastercam 9. 


I've already tried this: regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\mcamx9\common\SWORKSDATA\SWDocumentMgr.DLL"


Thanks for your help.

X9 can convert up to a Version 27 parasolid

Depending on the version of SolidWorks, you may need to set the parasolid export version

to 27 or lower.


For example.. SW2017 exports a V29 parasolid by default and X9 cannot open it

If you dial the export version back to V27, X9 will open them with no  problems


STP files do not have these issues, but you normally get a much clearner translation with X_B or X_T exports
