For more help, please check our article How to import a model manually Exporting SOLIDWORKS Simulation Results to JPEG Files Once you have run your SOLIDWORKS Simulation study and created all necessary plots, exporting the results is fairly easy. To do this, right-click on the Results folder of the study and select Save All Plots as JPEG Files SolidWorks is a preferred modeling software for 3D designs, but we need 2D vector files to cut your parts. Saving the whole part as a .DXF will flatten all the outlines for the whole part and complicate the cut. But never fear! You can export the outlined face of the part exactly as it should cut by following this tutorial. Let's begin
Sheet metal export. We want to engrave text and cut out holes in the sheet metal file underneath. We used a sketch in the main model to hold the text. Bonus tip: I used the Font OLF SimpleSansOC, this is a single line font and always available in SOLIDWORKS. To export this sheet metal to DXF we right click the model and select Export to DXF / DWG . We look at the restrictions and considerations you need to understand to successfully manage models that have been imported in different formats.

Click the button and an 'Export Options' window opens. 2 Some advice regarding saving files from solidworks. Iges and Step are great, but consider parasolid (XT) - I have just tested, an 8.6 meg solidworks file as Iges come out at 6.5 meg and as parasolid 1.33 meg - GrabCAD we should have a parasolid option, this makes sense for upload/download and server space, best option for email as well - most solid modellers will open parasolid In SOLIDWORKS, simply go to File > Save As. In the Save As window, choose STL as file type. This will unlock an Options button that will allow you to manually adjust the export settings. Clicking the Options button will bring up the following window. For best results, output as Binary, and set Resolution to Fine I just bring it back into Solidworks as a .step file then save it as a .sldprt. I suspect it's the way the other program imports the file not the way Solidworks exports it. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Rob Edwards | 07/20/17. Ah!! So I could re-import in SW and export again. Thankyou - I'll give it a try
