Whenever I try to import a Geometry from Solidworks into PW, it goes something like a wire-frame or even less not a full body/volume. Please see attached a photo.
Also, What is the best extension to save as in Solidworks to be imported without any issue into PW. I do have Solidworks2022 and PointWise does not like that when I try import the native (.sldprt). It does not like aversion no later than 2021.

Thank you

Wireframe is the default display. Look in the List panel under the Database tree. you should see Quilts and Models.

Select everything and change display to Shaded using View, Attributes... menu or the Attributes toolbar.

SolidWorks 2022 will be supported soon.

For now use 2021 sldprt files
