Authored by Nick Heberle February 21st, 2022 3669 views 3 likes KB1257702
When attempting to import a SolidWorks or Catia file into Electronics Desktop, you receive an error that the translator is not installed:
Translator installation for CATIA V5 and SOLIDWORKS import not found.
The translator necessary is not included with the Electromagnetics suite, and must be installed separately.
- In the Ansys Customer Portal, download the Electronics MCAD Translators package from the Add-On Packages section.
- Unzip the downloaded package, and open the folders to find setup.exe, right click and run it as administrator.
- Click Next through the wizard.
- When the wizard completes, click Finish.
