"The Internal ID Does Not Match" issue with SOLIDWORKS MCAD

Created: September 25, 2021 | Updated: October 20, 2021

This happens when several boards with the same set of components are used in a device assembly AND IF there is no common component folder set up in CoDesigner’s settings.

Starting in Version: 20.1
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

The problem is described here: https://blog.trimech.com/non-matching-internal-ids-solidworks

The solution is to choose “Accept this file anyway” option on opening of a device’s assembly:

... or, to set the Common Comp Folder in CoDesigner's settings.
