  1. Haha, well this part of the software (if really not installed), is essentially needed. Otherwise, the plugin can't interact with SolidWorks and get the file converted for you ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Hmm, looks like the registry keys are missing on your computer. That can be either because there is no support for external access via Windows Automation on your version or there is something special about your installation still. Maybe some old conventions to register, I don't know of?? Which version of Windows are you using? ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. The service checker is only to test the functionality of the connection to SolidWorks. Actually, I'm surprised that there are so many leftovers on your computer. Every entry in service checker indicates that some installation has been found on your computer. However, the executable (.exe file) to your installation could not be found. Normally, it should be known by your registry for Windows' automation interface. Could you be so kind and send me your log file? I should tell me more precise why the executable has not been found. I can imagine of either a malformed path or missing entry in your registry ๐Ÿ™‚ If you need any further help or instructions, please let me know!
  5. Please select SldWorks.Application.14 from the list. According to the Wikipedia article here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SolidWorks#Release_history) version 2006 corresponds to API 14. I never had any installation as old as this in my hands, so I guess there are API calls I do, which are not supported at your version, but let's investigate ๐Ÿง
  6. No problem. After installing the plugin, you should be able to open SolidWorks files without saving as STL. Are you sure the plugin is properly installed?
  7. Update: I might have found a solution while I was able to reproduce and fix the issue with Visual Studio, but with VBA.Net. Don't know how the same code will work in SolidWorks due to the .NET part ๐Ÿค”
  8. Heard the same from other people in the meantime, too. The macro is written in VBA and contributed by Ultimaker years ago as they wanted to see this feature as part of the plugin. However, it seems that they changed something to Cura's installer, so registry entries are written differently and thus the macro can't find it. The last time that happened was when "Cura" got renamed to "Ultimaker Cura", that's why I guess it must be something similar.
  9. Hello @bilou24an199! Keep me posted whether the plugin works with 4.4! Please note that the plugin shall only work with part files. Feel free to send me your log file via PM. (https://thopiekar.eu/cura/plugins/reporting-bugs/) Regards - Thomas
  10. Let me know if you have ideas for a better workflow! ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. I took a look over your log and I don't see any error messages related to my plugin. I see that the last message it somewhat stuck after the OpenGL driver has been initiated, but there is no relation I see to my plugin. Are there any users around who share the same symptoms with similar GPU or other hardware? Cheers!
  12. Could you please send us your cura.log, too?
  13. Hey! The plugin has been updated for Cura 4.4+ and a bug has been fixed. If the document (part, assembly or drawing) is already opened in Inventor, the document won't be closed anymore. There was already a check for it before, which was (it seems) not fully tested by me. Therefore, the check gave wrong info and leaded to this issue. Enjoy!
  14. All plugins have been reviewed and are available through the marketplace now. Enjoy and have a great weekend! - Thomas
  15. Thank you for the upload. Looks like the call of FreeCAD died at the background. I really need to make the plugin(s) more talkative at this point. The log doesn't tell me anything here ๐Ÿ˜ž Which FreeCAD version is installed btw?
