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.

  1. Click OK.

  2. Browse to a file, and click Open.

Version Information

You can import parts and assemblies from Unigraphics version 10 and higher, including import of Unigraphics NX 4 files.
