Solidworks "Future Version" Issue
A question. For years now, I have always used the latest version of SW. However, I face the perennial problem of wanting to share or collaborate my parts with SW users with older versions, but coming up against the brick wall of future versions at the receiving end. So I am forced to send them a step or parasolid file, which loses all of the "features". My question is "If I import my SW15 part to OS, translate to OS format, then re-translate to SW format, what version of SW is used?" In other words, can my recipients open the file in earlier versions of SW and see all the features?
