i have a problem with an igs file from rhinoceros 5.
When i open that file with st9, it doesn't shows the options of geometry that i can select.
So i can't use this file into st9, for create a structure in assembly.
I hope someone can help me.
what have You set for the importing options in SE?
Those options are to be defined before opening the IGS (or other files)
Go to the open, click the IGS file once no double click and then select the options button in the dialog.
thank for you reply.
Unfortunately, i already did this, but i have this problem when i open the options dialog, the options of geometry doesn't shows.
I don't know why, but i need to open this file.
in such cases I normally try to rename/delete the Current User entries in the regiostry for my Solid Edge installation.
Rename it and try it again to se wether or not there will be something different.
first of all - and as always the information that any changes in the registry always are done in behalf of Yourself - although I never had any issues doing that.
Go to start and enter the command regedit
This will open You the regostry editor.
Scroll down to HKEY_CURRENT_USER then SOFTWARE and search for Solid Edge - BTW this still is found in Unigraphics Solutions
There will be an entty called Version 109
Click this with the Right Mouse Button and use Rename
Rename it to Version 109 old (or whatever)
Close it and start Solid Edge
Now You should get a new default setting with which You will try to open the IGS again
i have tried to do the modify in the registry, but when i did this and i opened st9, program didn't start because i have a educational version.
How can i fix this problem now?
when i open st9 and i import iges file from rhinoceros, st9 says that this file contai only 2d parts and not 3d.
I think for that reason st9 doesn't open the file in correct way.
All the best,
OK, this should be easily solved.
Try to use a draft template (best might be a Symbopl Draft Template, which actually is an empty draft file with no background) as template for import.
You should be able to change this in options.
This should bring You the IGES file into Solid Edge
academic license has nothing to do with opening Solid Edge after renaming the registry
If a user starts Solid Edge the first time and no etries are in the Current User part of the reg then the default settings will be created.
