About Working with Imported Geometry
Working with imported data depends on the number of changes to the geometry expected, the type of features to be added, and information about the geometry required for the design. When you import and export geometry, you must specify in the file any configuration options affecting the transfer, and load the file before the transfer to ensure the appropriate conversion.
Imported data consists of 2D or 3D wireframe, 3D surface, or a combination of data types. Importing a geometry file from another CAD system adds an imported feature to a Creo model.
After you insert a feature into the model, you can:
Add other features.
Use reference dimensions to annotate the imported feature.
Create and dimension a drawing of the imported geometry.
Make a solid feature from the imported geometry depending on the type of imported geometry and the way it is to be used.
