This software imports SolidWorks (SLDMAT) material files for use with Scan&Solve™ for Rhino. Just follow these 4 simple steps:
- Download the software package for free here and then unzip its contents to the location of your choosing (note: make sure that the .dll file and the .exe file remain in the same directory).
- Run the executable entitled “Scan&Solve™ Material Importer.”
- Click the “SW materials file…” button and browse to your SolidWorks material file or alternatively enter the path to the file in the textbox to the right.
- Click “Begin conversion!” and you’re all done! The box below will display the progress of your import and any errors that may have occurred, along with any unsupported ("invalid") or duplicate materials that were not imported.
Your new materials should now be visible in the main Scan&Solve™ for Rhino materials menu. If you wish to back up your materials before running this application, the Scan&Solve materials file is located in your C:\Users\Your username\AppData\Roaming\Scan&Solve folder if you are using Windows Vista or 7, and C:\Documents and Settings\Your username\Application Data\Scan&Solve if you are using Windows XP.
