    How to import ACIS solids to one part file

    Kevin Quigley

      I am trying to import an ACIS file I have been sent that was done in TurboCad. It consists of about 20 solid objects. When I import the file (File, Open, ACIS) I always get an assembly file with multiple part files. What I want is a part file with multiple bodies. I have tried checking and unchecking the option to no avail. According the Help this should do exactly what I want -


      Import multiple bodies as parts

      (IGES, STEP, UG, and ACIS only).  Imports a multibody part as separate part documents in an assembly  document. When cleared, the multibody part imports as a part document with  multiple bodies.

      Is this a bug?
