Dear Foamers,
I would like to export CAD file from solid work to paraview as .Stl FORMAT but the arrangement will be changed .I attached the exported files.
The steps for export is like below.

How to export a .stl from Solid Works 3D CAD software


  • Tools > Options > Export
  • STL Options
  • Select Binary for file type
  • Set Quality to Fine
  • File > Save As
  • Set Save As Type to STL
  • Save
