Hi Everyone! I'm new to the forums and new to Solidworks


My first question is this: Can I import a part say (step) and modify/edit that part??  And is there a "best" file type to import as if this is possible?


Let me better explain what I'm TRYING to do here. I'm in the jewely industry and I want to import a part I made in my design software (3design) and "flatten" it. It's a part of the ring and I want to flatten it and export as a dxf so i can then bring into corel draw and extract the lines and save as a .Plt


So I guess the real question, is can i import a model, FLATTEN IT and export back out???




Thanks all,
