Hey Nerdy, Did you see my comment about the STEP file you posted? It imported into Solidworks basically the same as an STL file. Am I doing something wrong? Do you get usable hole geometry on yours?

I was thinking the fit mesh conversion process would probably take longer than one click due to the demonstration of the process in this video starting here.

Was not able to clear enough space from my PC this weekend. The Inventor installation says it needs 40GB. My work computer has the space, but they’ve blocked downloads of exe files due to infections. That usually does not stop me from installing a program, but due to Inventor having such a complex multi part installer I can’t fool the system long enough to make it happen yet.

On a good note. Just got done printing a bunch of parts, including one of the monster XY files 🙂
