    Exporting Files Surfaces and Splines SiCad/SiCube

    Tom Callan

      Hello

       

      I am using a 5-axis laser programming software that requires an iges file.  What the software needs is that the surfaces and the splines end up on different layers/colors.

      Does any one know how to export files as iges and end up having the surfaces and the splines/lines/arc on a different layer?  I have tried the Mastercam export with no success.

       

      The software i am trying to import the iges file to, is SiCad/SiCube made by an Italian company.

       

      I have been doing this using Mechanical Desktop for many years but we want to switch over to strictly SW.

       

      Please Help

          Tom,

           

          You could try the other ten preference settings to see if one has the right combination, but I think you will probably end up doing two exports; one with "IGES solid/surface entities" checked and "Export 3D Curve features" not checked and one with "IGES wireframe (3D curves)" checked. I'm assuming that you have a way of changing the colors and/or layers once you get them from SW.
