Whats the best way to import large .igs files into SW

Hi All,


I'm hoping for some help or advice.


When I go to import a very large .igs file (140mb) into SolidWorks it fails - get the SolidWorks is not responding message. I have even left the workstation running overnight hoping that even though there was the not "responding message" perhaps it needed time to crunch the data, but no joy.


The model was original created in 3D Max (39,000 polygons & 42,000 vertices). I have also got an .obj version but get a "Not enough memory to load file" message.


Any advice would be hugely appreciated,


Thanks, Steve
