Solidworks to 3DS

Discussion created by Guest on Jun 2, 2006
Hey there,

Is there any reasonable way to get a Solidworks part-model in 3DS format?

I have tried saving it as an IGES file, importing it into 3DS Max and then saving it into *.3DS, but when I import the IGES file into 3DS MAX the model becomes different from the originel - surfaces are missing etc.

Anyone have a clue how to solve this?
