Trouble Shooting

Problem: Solidworks cannot read data downloaded in Solidworks data format.

Possible Solutions:

Please confirm the downloaded file extension first.
Extension .swb is the macro file for Solidworks.

For extensions other than .swb, please confirm download settings.

There are two procedures to read macro files as follow.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

※1) Please drag a swb file and drop it on Solidworks.

  1. 1. Drag and drop it on the title bar of Solidworks. (Not on the window)
  2. 2. When you are asked where to save it, specify it and click OK.
  3. 3. Then models are automatically created.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

※2)Select a function in the menu bar.

  1. 1. Tool/Macro/Run Command opens extension .swb files (Solidworks Visual Basic Program).
  2. 2. Select .swb files (SolidWorks Visual Basic Program) in the dialog box.
  3. 3. When you are asked where to save Solidworks files and specify it.
  4. 4. Models are automatically created.
