Extracting Geometry from a Corrupted Solid Body

When the SOLIDWORKS software attempts to repair a corrupt file and cannot resolve the problem, the software prompts you with an option to extract geometry if the body data of the file is still intact.

If you accept this option, the software imports the geometry from the corrupted file into a new file. You can use the geometry and add features to create a new model. However, the new file will not have the feature history associated with the imported geometry.
