I'm trying to convert an assembly from Pro/E to Solidworks
and would like to keep the mass/inertia properties of parts. Is
there a way to do this?
I've tried STEP and parasolid formats but neither of these
seem to work. Curiously, with parasolid files, exporting them from
Pro/E and importing them back into Pro/E seems to keep mass
information, while exporting them from SolidWorks and back again
doesn't. This seems to suggest that parasolid files do contain mass
information, and that SolidWorks just doesn't recognize it. Is this
Any help or suggestions much appreciated. Thanks.
The total Mass or Density can be assigned to the model in
2006. If the centroid of the ProE model is known, using the
Move/Copy Body Function in SW, you hopefully can move the body
exacly where needed.
