In my position we work exclusivly with NX. We design injection molds. Currently we have vendors that use other software programs and we dont require them to submit data to us in NX.
My question is what is the best format to get data and keep the assembly structure and component names, Currently we are using STEP but I was curious if anyone had any better ways of keeping this structure and names.
Out of the box you can open native Solidworks and Solid Edge files. In addition there is an add-on to open navtive PTC and Catia files as well.
