I have 2010 Solidworks but not the professional only the core. I need to import a SAT file into solidworks. Is there a way for me to be able to edit the model after I bring it into solidworks and to see the features?
even with pro you would not see the feature tree from the previous modeling program. you would have access to featureworks which could create a new feature tree, but that is all.
Ok but is there a way for me to edit the SAT file in solidworks without featureworks?
you can't edit the SAT file with solidworks. you can edit the SW model that is generated when you import the SAT file. though not in the normal way - there won't be dimensions that you can just change the value for. you will need to use features like delete face, replace face, move face, among others depending on the edits you wish to accomplish.
