Question Importing Geometry from SolidWorks 2007 (via FastRad) 

Forum: Geometry
Date: 07 Jul, 2008
From: Bryan C. Callahan <Bryan C. Callahan>

I have a drawing designed in SolidWorks 2007 that I'm attempting to pull into Geant4. I've found a program (FastRad: http://www.fastrad.net/) which does this but am running into a problem.

Basically, I start by exporting a STEP file (AP214) from SolidWorks 2007. This works great. I then open FastRad and import the geometry. Once it is imported the drawing looks great; however, all of my materials are no longer associated with the Parts in the drawing.

At this point, I have to select each part in the drawing (in FastRad) and reassociate the material. This isn't a problem when dealing with only a few parts but the drawing I need to get into geant4 has several hundred parts.

I've been searching all over the place and have browsed several forums but am not able to come up with an automated solution to convert my SolidWorks STEP file to a GDML file.

I'd greatly appreciate any input.
