SolidWorks2004 to Wildfire 2

I searched all the old posts but didn't see any up to date info on converting from Solidworks2004 to Pro/E Wildfire 2.



I thought an ACIS (.sat) file would bring in a feature based parametric file but the only one I had to test failed to convert more tha 99% of the entities. All I got was a coordinate system (I think). It was ACIS version 13 created by Solidworks2004.



My experience with STEP & IGES is that they result in a dumb block of geometry without features or parametrics. Is this still the case?



Since Solidworks seems to be the most popular modeler at the moment I would think a robust interface into WF would be a big selling point for PTC.



Don't bother telling me about service bureas or direct translators. I work for a very penny wise and pound foolish company which has a cow anytime we want to spend money on this kind of thing.
