  • type of model

    Can someone tell me how i can tell which type of model i imported. I tried a few model i.e. STEP, IGES, etc... but i forgot which one looked and worked the best. I can see the model on the screen and i can find the .CAD file but is there a way to tell which type it is with out importing them all over again and actually paying attention to what i am doing this time? As you can tell i don't use models much and any help would be appreciated.

      Yes,
      View/Cad Info/click on a surface (in surface mode).
      You may need to enlarge the dialog box to see all the info.

      What a long, strange trip it's been.

        IGES isn't as "bulky" to load as STEP but I think STEP in general is better to work with because a lot of IGES files I get from UG are full of surface voids at a radius or small arc surfaces. I've got an offline seat with Direct CAD UG and when I get bad IGES models I import the UG model, program from it and then delete the .CAD file before I move it to the production folders.
