View Full Version : 2012 Shot Import and Tesselation Issue

11-14-2011, 02:12 PM
I have the latest version of 2012 Shot running on my machine. Cannot export directly from solidworks 2012 via the export in the SW program and when I go to import a Step file the tesselation quality is pretty bad. It does not give me the option to change the tesselation when in the import phase. That section of the import window is visible but i cannot click on it to change.

Hi Moog -

First things first...we are awaiting for a new SW importer that is compatible with the 2012 products, so it shouldn't be too much longer.

With regard to the tessellation slider being greyed out...i just double checked and its available for me. My first question is: what version of Shot are you running (Go to Help > About)? Is the same thing happening if you try an IGES file?

Talk soon

I am running 64bit 2012.0 Have tried IGES and all other types that can be exported from Solidworks 2012.

Please download the latest version of Shot which is 2012.2 (You can just download the trial version off our hompage here). Uninstall your 2012.0 first before installing 2012.2. This is the verison i verified has the tessellation slider working.
