keeping mass properties

Discussion created by Guest on May 26, 2006

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 True?

Any help or suggestions much appreciated. Thanks.
