Importing an .swb file from a supplier.
Hello! I have attempted to import a file for a DE-STA-CO clamp created from their website's product page. I first tried importing the ZIP file (created using "SolidWorks, >=2001+" choice on their site), and received "Translation failed" messages in Onshape. I did this both on the Documents Page and in a Parts Studio. Then I uncompressed the ZIP file on my local computer and there was a text document file and a .SWB file for the clamp. I attempted to Import the .SWB file and all I get is a tab with the file listed. Anyone want to figure out how to get the clamp model to regenerate??? This goes along with 'Similar Parts' or working with supplier's models.
