    Import Catia cgr files

    Mark Olsen
      On the File Open dropdown for file types, Catia cgr is listed. I've tried to open a number of cgr files, but none of them work. I always get a "Read CGR file failed." error message. Does this ever work? Am I missing something obvious?

      I know that the files are only a graphic representation of the part (kinda like a vrml), but I need to look at them anyway. Any ideas would be appreciated.

          SW07 only reads .cgr files from Catia v5 R16 and older

              Yeah, I eventually figured that out. However, the company I work for is still on 2006. What fooled me was that the files could be opened on some computers, and not on others (the error message). Turns out that not all service packs are created equal. SP 5.0 would open them, but SP 4.1 would not. Also, the 5.0 that we are using is 64 bit. the 4.1 is 32 bit. Not sure if it is the SP number or the bit version that is at issue.

              Thanks for your feedback.
