cat II translator


New member
We have the CATIA II translator with ATB license extension for Pro/E Wildfire 1.0 build M230.I have hidden config option "write_catii_solids = yes" set in the config.pro. I choose File > Save a Copy and choose the (*.model extension) and at the Export Catia dialog I choose Solids. I then send the .model file to a customer and they report that the file is a volumes file and they need to convert it to a solids files within catia. Our contract mandates that we provide a catia solids file so we are not meeting our obligation. Does anyone know if there is some export option or configuration that I am missing to be able to export to a Catia .model file as Solids rather than volumes?

Thanks in advance for any responses.
