SOLIDWORKS Import diagnostics

SOLIDWORKS import diagnostics is a special feature that helps diagnose imported components. It helps heal surfaces and parts based on imported curves when the parts are not complete.

In this tutorial, we will be going through how to use this feature to detect faults in imported parts and subsequently heal them.

Begin by opening a part that requires users to import its sketches and curves.
