MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition Help

To Import a Parasolid File

  1. Open a 3D file in MicroStation PowerDraft.
  2. Select File > Import > 3D Modeling File Types > Parasolid (*.x_t) .

    The Import Parasolid XMT File dialog opens.

  3. Identify the units for the file to import.

    The imported data will be scaled to match the units of the active model. (If the units in both files are the same, no scaling occurs.)

  4. (Optional) To change the selected directory, choose one of the following from the menu bar of the dialog:

    — Directory > Select Configuration Variable

    — Directory > Current Work Directory

    — Directory > <directory_path>

  5. Select the Parasolid file to import.
  6. Click OK.

    The status messages flash briefly in the Status area. If logging is enabled, these status messages are recorded in a log file. After the process is completed, the translated model is shown in a fitted view in the currently visible windows.
