Unigraphics Files

The Unigraphics translator imports the Parasolid information of a Unigraphics® part or assembly into a SolidWorks part or assembly document. Only the Parasolid information is extracted, not the proprietary feature information of a Unigraphics part.

You can import Unigraphics compressed part files.

To open a Unigraphics part or assembly:

  1. Click Open (Standard toolbar) or File > Open.
  2. In the dialog box, set Files of type to Unigraphics (*.prt), then click Options.
  3. In the Import Options dialog box, under General, select or clear:
    • Import multiple bodies as parts. Imports a multibody part as separate part documents in an assembly document.
    • Under UG, Import tool bodies. Tool bodies are used to construct the final bodies.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Browse to a file, and click Open.

Importing Unigraphics Files

You can import Unigraphics files up to version 7.5.

  1. Click File > Open.
  2. For Files of Type, select Unigraphics.
  3. To set general options or to import tool bodies with the file, click Options, set the options, and click OK.
  4. Select the file and click Open.
