Does anyone know the best format to use to export a SharkCAD file to SolidWorks?

I use .STP export

The history is lost but all the 3D data are correct, most of the time.

The best format for exporting Solids is always the ACIS SAT format because the STEP-Format splitting the cylinder-surfaces in 2 parts. If this splitting not so important for you is the STEP-Sormat the best way, because the ACIS SAT-Format keeping no Layers.

I have transfered hundred of files to Solidworks. For quick import I use parasolid , which is the base of solidworks. I use parasolid V 11 due to best experience. I only use parasolid for large assemblies with many parts.
Step import into Solidworks lasts very long with lot of parts, but you rarely need to repair these. I usually repair all parts in Solidworks before transferring to clients.
