Importing MDT Files

Is there a trick to avoid getting "base1" for all your imported parts? Some
import fine and some of the simple ones import as solids?

Thanks,

Barclay

Configure Options in the open dialog box BEFORE opening the MDT file...... Keep
in mind that some features are not supported in 5.3, like combines, surface
cuts, 3D paths, etc.... those will result in base parts.

Pattern is another feature that does not translate, which is quite annoying
as I have used it allot! At times I have edited my MDT files to avoid
getting a dumb part in Inv. Depends on the part and time involved etc...

Cheers,
Howard
