Invisible IGES


New member
Greetings fellow ProE users!

I'm currently modeling with the student version of proE. I currently have a 3ds skull converted into stl and iges. the stl will import fine, but not allow me to zip gaps or fix tangencies. The iges will import, shows up in the model tree, but never appears in the window. I was able to solidify the feature, but I still can't see it. Am I forgetting to do something? This skull is pretty crucial for my master's thesis.


If you got the skull from this web site, you will have to assign a color to each surface.

Give that a try.

yeah, check the layers! Some softwares can enable at iges export, the propriety blank or unblank geometry. For that reason u can see.

OR somebody skip the geometry/layer at export
