SolidWorks - LoadCurves issue

Hi there,

recently I have tried to make a path on an example that can be seen in attachment (RoboDK - LoadCurves1.png).
I have used AutoSetup on letter L that is shown in picture. So far so good, but problem start with adding another path to RoboDK with function LoadCurves in SolidWorks. After applying LoadCurves on letter S in SolidWorks, CAD model and path made on L letter disappear, visible is only path on S letter. (you can see that in attachment RoboDK - LoadCurves2.png). 
I have tried all Object export options under settings in SolidWorks RoboDK Add-In (default, stl, igs, step) and none of that options makes any difference.  

Any other ideas what I could be doing wrong? 

Thanks in advance, Jakob

Hi Jakob,
You should be able to change the name of your object in the RoboDK settings (plug-in for SolidWorks settings). Alternatively, if you rename the object once it is loaded in RoboDK it should not disappear either.
Hi Albert,
I have tried the way you wrote and it works, thanks.
Another question on same topic. Each time I want to import another/new curve on the same object I have to change Object name so that curve appear in RoboDK, else previous disappear?
Hi Jakob,

You can prevent RoboDK from overriding your 3D models by unchecking the Override checkbox.
