Solid Edge Files

The Solid Edge® translator imports the Parasolid information of Solid Edge parts (including sheet metal parts) or assemblies into SOLIDWORKS part or assembly documents. Only the Parasolid information is extracted, not the proprietary feature information.

To open a Solid Edge part or assembly:

  1. Click File > Open.
  2. Optional: 3DEXPERIENCE Users: If the Open from 3DEXPERIENCE dialog box appears, click This PC.
  3. Set Files of type to one of the following:
    • Solid Edge Part (*.par, *.psm)
    • Solid Edge Assembly (*.asm)
  4. Browse to a file, and click Open.
    Solid Edge files store data only in metric units so SOLIDWORKS always reads Solid Edge files in metric units.
