powershape to pro-e translation


New member

has anyone had any luck converting a iges file from powershape to pro-e? the files some in very fragmented and need a lot of repair. any help would be great. I tryed to have them export it into a STEP file format but that was worse than the IGES file type.

thanks Terry

Can you save it as a vda file?

What options do you have in powershape for saving iges?

ie. surface, shell, solid?

I have had very good luck saving surface models as a shell before exporting to mastercam and rhino.
