Parasolid with Wireframe?

Legend

I received a Parasolid file from a customer that had wireframe in it? 

Is there a way for NX to export wireframe and points along with solids and surfaces to X_T files?

AFAIK, NX doesn't export anything other than solid bodies and sheet bodies when exporting Parasolid data.

When you say 'wireframe', did NX identify the imported Parasolid geometry as lines/arc/splines?

The file was from Visi. I opened it in my viewer and notice the curves. 

So I opened it in NX, using File->Open X_T and NX 11 imported the curves as well.  ( as lines, arcs and splines)

 

Our Laser Dept uses a Parasolid based offline programming software. So my process is to send an X_T file with surfaces and solids and an Igs file for supporting wireframe trim and points.  ( we don't have a step translator for it)

 

Being able to export Wirefame (curves and points) in NX would be amazing...

As far as i know it, or think i know it...
Parasolid also has curves in it's tool set.
- A software company who licenses Parasolid to build some application on it can use those curves.
But, NX does not use this tool set for curves , NX has it's own curves .
This might be the reason for the non-export.
