importing geometry from Solidworks to DM by.IGS
I have an assembly file of my geometry from solidworks. when I save as .IGS file then import into DM the material still Solid wile I defined solid and fluid in solidwork. whereas, I can change it within DM but I must have import geometry with predefined solid and fluid by solidworks.
Where is my mistake ?

1-you can define geometry type in DM easily.
2-you can test Save As STEP type.
I suggest No 1.

thank you for reply,

I want to have this properties before importing to the DM. whereas, I defined solid and fluid for each part of assembly but I cant understand the reason why doesn't change in DM and still defied solid for two cases...

i think your license not work properly (may be).
Are you Save as Step format and export to the DM?
