    mechanical model consistency error

    michael.vaupel

      Hi,

       

      whenever I try to import a STEP-Model in PADS 3D (for assignment to a decal), which was downloaded at Ultra Librarian, I always get a "mechanical model consistency error". I tried several STEP-files from the site, all with the same result. I use PADS Standard Plus, VX2.3 Update 3. Does anybody knows a solution for this ?

          Hi. everyone

           

          Files downloaded from Ultra Librarian can not be imported.
          Anyone know why?

          However, if you import those files from inventor and save them as a step again,

          Imported from PADS 3D.

            I occasionally run into this.  I send the STP file to someone using SolidWorks and ask them to open the STP and then save it to a new file.  I can open the STP files from SolidWorks consistently.
