Export Geometry from the ICEM
Hello everyone.

I have import a geometry from a cad file to ICEM to made some modification.
then I export the geometry as .IGS and or .STL
but there is something strange here!! when I want t import again this exported geometry, then the only surfaces which I made in ICEN (the surfaces which are created in the modify process) will open and the other surfaces which are originally created vanished! So I have just the surfaces and curves which I built in ICEM and not builted by CAD file.
hopefully I can explain what is going on.

Is any body has any idea about the case?

Export in step and parasolid. And import both and see what you get.

Hello and thanks for your reply
In the ICEM, you cannot export to step file! how can I do that?

for exporting in Parasolid format I got this error:
