You can temporarily import geometry data in ACIS or IGES format from other software packages, such as Tribon, NAPA, or Rhino. You can compare the temporary geometry to the geometry of objects in the model.
Geometry Analysis and Repair only - during the import process, the software applies LGF attributes to patches, if they are present. This information is used later during a copy and mirror operation, if the hull is symmetrical.
You can import geometry on top of other geometry in the Geometry Analysis and Repair task. The effect is cumulative.
You must have a license for IGES to use the Import > IGES command.
The data in the Geometry Analysis and Repair task is not saved in a session file or in the database. If you delete geometry, or define or refresh the workspace, the imported geometry is lost. You must export the data to an external file to save it.
The imported geometry cannot be used to create objects in the database.
