I measured a face of a gearbox with a 3D measuring arm and the file that the 3d arm gives me is an igs file.
I struggle with converting it to a sldprt file. Can please someone help me with it?
Looking forward to your replies.
I am getting 2 surface bodies and bunch of lines and circles
This is what you are after?
Which version of SW you use?
this shape is basically what I need. When I tried to convert the igs to a sldprt it only shows me two surfaces without anything on it. I measured a few parts of the fur face and all these holes. I use sw 2013 student edition
This is pretty precisely what I need. Sorry for all these strange comments that I made. I'm new in this forum and need to get used to all the features.
I use SolidWorks 2013 student edition.
What you created from my igs file is exactly what I need. I could work on what you made. Can you explain how you came to this result or send this file to me?
Thank you in advance.
I am using SW2015 and you won't be able to open prt file in your version.
Are you able to open iges file in your version and what's the result you are seeing?
You could change the options and you may get the same result
I can open these files but I can only see the same as Mohamed Manzoor sees. Just 2 planar surfaces.
You may change your iges open options
In your solidworks, click file open and select type to .iges
Just select your iges file and below you see the options
Click on options and change as shown below, click OK and OK again to start translation
Hope this works
What are your settings under Options after you select the IGES File Type?
You have an option to import points and curves.
What are you trying to do with this part? I open the iges file and it looks like there are 2 construction planes and one 3d sketch???
Actually, i measured a bunch of holes and a midpoint a bit deeper in the part.
I was also able to get exactly the same view of the 2 planes. But this is not what was measured.
I use solidworks 2013 student edition.
but technically, the holes and lines are correct. Can you post this file that you got and post it in this discussion? That would be really helpful.
My SW 2014 is showing only two surface . but john george has many sketch on it.
thanks a lot my problem is solved now
