    No Datasmith support for Solidworks 2020? Need clarification ASAP...Thanks!!!

    I just read in the 4.24 Datasmith documentation that Solidworks is supported up through version 2017:
    http://​​​​​​​https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Engine/Content/Importing/Datasmith/SupportedSoftwareAndFileTypes/index.html

    We are about to pull the trigger on a seat of Solidworks 2020, so I am hoping this is incorrect! Can anyone verify or clarify for me?

    If you save STEP files from Solidworks, that is always supported regardless of version.

    My guess is that you do that in your workflow anyway, since surely you don't send original part files to your manufacturing partners?

      Thanks very much for the reply! I was able to contact my reseller and have them send me a SW2020 assembly file to test out, and it came into UE4 with no problems. I guess they just need to update their documentation!
