Do you want to have everything in one part of just 1 body?

Your image shows only bodies that are in 1 part. so you allready have 1 part.

So you want all bodies as 1 body?

 

If you look into the assembly navigator do you have thare components/Parts?

 

everything to 1 body depence on the import/export quality.

If you import the part and it is splitted into multi sheet bodies you nee to sew everything.

In the step translators you can set "sew automatilly".

@S7,

If you're expecting imported IGES files to be solid bodies, you have to turn on Automatic Sewing of Surfaces, otherwise they will only come in as disconnected (Unsewn) sheet bodies (surfaces).

Hi,

 Whats the difference while save as file in .iges and export the file in .iges. Because in other cad softwares are has while saving itself we can change file format and  choose solid or surfaces. Likewise we have any option in NX 11

For IGES, basically there is no difference between File > Save As or File > Export.
