Save Solid Edge Draft as Dwg File - Thumbnails are not Generated

  Posted by Siemens Community , 13 January 2018 · 56 views

Please help.

For number of the SE versions, saving SE drafts as translated to dwg format, manually or with the VB code, does not generate automatically file thumbnails in W7 and W10 for the long time.

I know - it is not the most important thing for 3D, but my SolidWorks Premium is doing it right way for the long time.

Play with the translation INI file settings, reading the translation log file etc. did not help at all.


Basically at the print time of the master drafts, my code generates slave dwg, pdf and print job files for the single file or for the selected batch based on the parent child definition of multilevel assemblies or the whole project.

Opening of the windows explorer does not create the Solid Edge draft slave dwg file thumbnail too.

I wonder if there is somewhere some registry setting or some other trick to get the thumbnails preview ready.


Thanks. Looking forward for the solution.
