  • Translate Suppressed Instances – When checked ON, suppressed instances in the Solidworks file will be translated.

Options to Handle Part Files with Multiple Configurations

Translate All Configurations- will allow the import of any alternate configuration from the default and will separate each onto a unique level.

Translate Default Configuration Only- will ignore all configuration except the default configuration and place on a single level (named Solidworkslayer 0 .)

Directory Location of Parts Referenced by Assembly
  • Prompt for Part Reference Directory – When selected, a second dialog will appear once the import file is selected requesting a folder containing the parts referenced by the assembly.

  • Same Directory as Assembly File – When selected, it will be assumed that the folder in which the assembly resides will contain referenced parts.
