I imported some design from solidworks.
I imported it as from parasolid files
Afrer import of each part I converted it to sheet metal using toll "CONVERT TO SHEET METAL"
Everything is ok.
But when I want to save this converted file Solid edge still want to save it as a *.part file.
Files converted to sheet metal where is no any bends I can save as *.psm file.
But If in converted file is even one bending then I can not to save it as *.psm file.
if You know that You finally want to get a sheet metal part then use a PSM as import template rather than a PAR.
But nevertheless if You have alread a converted sheetmetal but saved as PAR You can rename that one to a dot PSM
Before writing and posting this lines I wanted to check it by myself.
So created a sheet metal saved it as parasolid and imported it back as part.
Converted it to sheet metal and jsut clicked save
And now - surprise - SE automatically offered. and only offered me, to save it as PSM.
Only as PSM!
So right now I'm not able to test the rename from par to psm, but I know that I have done it in the past.
OK, continued to test this situation and when saving the imported part before converting it as part then I have the dot par file type.
Convert it to psm and save it, still let it be a .par
Close it, change the name or better to say the ending to .psm and open it again brings a pure PSM part to SE
So this should work anyway.
