    Default opening solidworks 2010 files in inventor 2010?

    I am trying to open some Solidworks files (.sldprt & .sldasm) in Inventor 2010. I was able to do this with files created on an older version of solidworks but this batch was created with the newest solidworks version. Inventor pops up a Translation report in the web browser with the error below. Is there a way to open these files?

    No, SW2010 came out after IV2010 so they didn't have access to the software updates. IV2011 will be able to do it. As far as what you have right now you will have to get them as STEP files.
