Default importing cad/surface informations
Roberto Ciardulli
Posts: n/a
I'm trying to create the geometry of my case using PROSTAR, but I have some problems with cell tables. These are the steps I have followed:

1. Geometry saved in .IGS format with UNIGRAPHICS giving different colors to the components of the engine (valves, ducts,etc. like in the ProICE tutorial)

2. File .IGS converted to .IGES

3. File .IGES imported in PROSTAR using the "import cad/surf infos" of the STAR GUIde (selecting the option COLOR to the "assign group entity" parameter)

At the end the various components do not have different colors like the .iges file, but some of them have the same color.

P.S.: I have 7 different components and I used

starting group # = 1 last group # = 7 starting color index = 2 last color index = 8

Thanks in advance, Roberto
