Importing Reference Meshes

Importing the Reference Mesh Power Surfacing RE can use either .OBJ or .STL files as reference meshes.

To import an STL or OBJ file:

1.Create a new Part file.

2.From the Power Surfacing menu (under Tools in SOLIDWORKS 2015), select Import Scanned/Reference Mesh.

3.Select either an OBJ or an STL file.

4.Select the units for the imported file.

Note: Neither file type has a concept of units, so you must specify them on import. If you are unsure, you can check the value as it would be shown in the part file’s default units.

Obj files can also be imported through SOLIDWORKS File/Open but you must select PS OBJ Reference Mesh (*.OBJ) as the file type before selecting the OBJ file.
