Hi all,

I have Flotherm XT 3.3, and it looks like it does NOT support Solidworks 2019!

It supports Solidworks 2018 files but for 2019 files, I have to convert them to Step and then import into flotherm. It's really inconvenient because I won't be able to modify the parts and dimensions anymore!

Do you guys have the same problem? Is there a fix or update that I'm missing?

Best regards

You might try researching the newly named program Simcenter FloTHERM XT 2019.1 or 2019.2. Renamed as the ongoing merging of Siemens acquisition of Mentor Graphics. Good Luck. Solidworks that is packaged with FloTHERM XT won't let you export to an earlier version like most programs (Ansys, Femap). You might look into another version of SolidWorks since the FloTHERM XT version has some limitations and is not fully featured. Be aware though that once your model is converted to 2019 there is no going back to 2018 versions or the software that supports 2018.
