Hello everyone,

 

  I have a quiery regarding iges file..

 

 

   As soon as I import a iges file and when i'm trying to select that body it is considering as a surface instead of body and even if i'm trying to edit or clip the section it is showing as surface. Can anyone tell me what might be the possible error or mistake that i'm doing?

IGES will import your data as Sheet Bodies not Solid Bodies and is a restriction of the exporting system as much as the IGES file format.

Can you ask the originator of the data to re-export in STEP or JT format?

 

If not then you will have to do a bit of work sewing the sheets together.
