I have recently started a new job where my boss uses autocad and I use solidworks. Last week he created a model and sent me an iges to import into solidworks which I did. It now needs to be modified but I can't seem to do it. First of all it saved it as an assembly so I turned around and saved it as a part but it still won't let me modify it.
This model looks like a channel, 3 inches high, 3 inches wide and 12 inches long. I need to reduce it to 2-1/2 high and wide with a small flange at both ends for screws. I was going to cut a 1/4 inch off thru the top on both sides of the flange. I did make the cuts but now can't get them back together. At this point I don't have a clue as to what to do. I don't even know if I'm bringing the model in right.
Anyone know anything about doing this? I can really use your knowledge.
