import solidworks files on onshape

nerozneroz Member Posts: 2

I try to put my solidworks files on onshape, but I have the error "translation failed"

With solidworks (2013 and 2015) I created the zip files with the function pack and go. I follow this video but it does work with me.
Do you have some solution?

    I am having the same problem. I checked that my top level assy has the exact name as my zip file. But still no luck with the translation. Please help! I need more ideas on what I'm doing wrong.

    Any idea how to fix this? What am I doing srong?
