    Does anyone else in here use SW models to write programs?

    When I import an IGES file, I can click around the holes and my Auto Circles and other features work just fine.

    But when I do the same thing in SW, the model seems hollow and when I click on it I select another feature 'through' the model, and this has rendered my Auto-features useless.

    Any suggestions? Comments? Anyone else experience this? Is this something that can be fixed within the SW model? Or could it be a translator issue? Or a DMIS 4.1 issue?

    Any help appreciated....thx

    Definately a translation problem. I sometimes get the same using Catia and UG iges files. Is there another program that you can translate through?
