HI All~

I try CatiaV5(catpart) import to NX10.

However, there is no density in the imported file.


What way is there?

Hello @djkim,


I'm not sure where this issue is caused, with the import, or the export.


But if I look at the Export options. Look at this help page about what it mapped from NX to Catia:


You'll find the following:


Mapping attribute entities from NX to CATIA V5



Part attributes

Not supported.

User attributes

Not supported.


As I believe the material and the density is stored in the NX attributes, I guess they are not exported to the Catia Part, and therefor not imported back into NX. And NX uses the default density as it would use for all new parts.


I hope this helps.


Kind regards,
