Solidworks appearances not importing Composer v10.14

Post by Höregrö » Mon Sep 21, 2020 12:46 pm

I'm having an issue where native Solidworks-files with different materials (appearances) don't retain when importing into Composer, instead the model is a single color. Works correctly when importing a step-file. Am I doing something wrong? This worked just fine on Composer 6 that I used previously. I'm using SW2020 Sp2.0.

SolidWorks may put material information on assembly level, part level or face level.

Those should be handled, if you have a model not working please send it to support@simlab-soft.com they should check it for you.

Thanks, I'll send the part via email. There is something strange happening, I opened a part made with an older version of SW and it retained the appearances without problems. Resaved that part as a SW2020-file and still no problems in Composer. But for some reason any part made from scratch with SW2020 doesn't seem to be working.
