Exporting Dimensions from Inventor 2013 to ProE/CREO

Hi, I was wondering if somehow Autodesk Inventor 2013 could export the sketches and dimensions of a part to ProE/CREO.  I've tried using an IGES format and exported the part from Inverntor to CREO, and I get the part with the dimensions and everything, but not the sketches or the extrusions,etc.  Just the plain part.


Also used the .g and .neu , and still nothing.

Hi f_couto,


Thanks for your report.


When you export to .g or .neu format there is an option "Sketches" in Save as dialog box, please check it on then the sketches can be exported, but the Sketches here only includes curve, the dimension and constraint cannot be export, about extrusion feature lost (you should only see a base solid), this is not Inventor software specific behavior as other 3D CAD software cannot achieve this which I believe. But you can use tool "Inventor Feature Recognition" from Autodesk Lab to recognize the features, it is free and you can get installer from: .
