How to export geometry from icem
I find it much easier to create my geometry in ICEM rather than other CAD programs. However I have a problem with importing the geometry in proE (I need it for CNC machining). I usually save the file in the form of .3dm as it saves all the curves, surfaces etc. The problem is once I load the file in proE the surfaces dont appear properly at the edgesa although they look fine in ICEM. Is there a way to solve this ? Is there a way to created a solid in ICEM if you have a number of surfaces? Maybe that can solve my problem. I have tried other export format but they all miss the surfaces altogether. I have also played with tolerances to no avail. I'd very much appreciate your help. If I can't find a solution I'd have to go back to proE and sketch the whole thing from scratch!
