An error occurred during conversion: File Open Error

Post by brandongokey » Thu Oct 10, 2019 5:26 am

Software: CMM-Manger
Version: 3.9.7068

Catia Model Used, v5 (.catpart)
Software: Catia
Version: 5-6 Release 2019

When I try to import a model that was created in my new Catia version 5-6 release 2019, I get the error below. I just had CMM-Manger updated to the 3.9 version and I also had my Catia upgraded to the latest version. I never had these problems until I upgraded to new versions of both software’s. I am trying to troubleshoot which software is the problem. I am able to import other (.catpart) Catia models that have not been created in the new Catia version 5-6 release 2019 into CMM-Manager, I do not get the error. The error only occurs when the Catia model has been saved with the latest Catia version. It appears that the CMM-Manager CAD converter is not compatible to convert the new Catia version 5-6 release 2019 models into .IGES. Can you please confirm what this error means and please provide any possible solutions to resolve this issue?
