Transfer from SW 2012 back to SW 2011

I need to (repeatedly as it is updated) take a SW 2012 assembly and find a format that will allow me to import it back into SW 2011 to put into the master assembly.  I can write a Parasolid file, but the assembly is large and uses a lot of repeated parts and when SW writes the Parasolid it makes each repeated part a new part so that the assembly becomes so large the SW 2011 takes forever to open it (it is still crunching while I write, has been 15 minutes so far on a 4 processor 64 bit system).  Is there a way to export/import an assembly so that all the features/surfaces remain so I can use the required mates and dimensioning but packs the entire assembly into a "small" file and won't try to re-expand it when opening it in Sw 2011?


Thanks - Greg
