I use .STEP file extensions to export to solidworks. It seems to open well. After it asks me if I want to run import diagnostics and I say yes, it shows me any surfaces that need to be fixed. I use the automatic healer in solidworks to fix the issue. When I try to make 2D drawings using solidworks or when I try to dimension a specific feature on the 3D model, solidworks gives me an error message and tells me “the selected entity could not be converted into a line or a circular arc.”
Also when I dimension an angle in Rhino on my model it tells me it is 90.0000°. Then when I dimension the same angle in solidworks it shows me the angle is 90.0024°.
All this becomes a problem when I send a part to a manufacturer and he opens it using solidworks and tells me he has to fix up the model to get it right.
Are there settings in Rhino I can fix to help mitigate this issue?
