Loading CATIA v5 with materials

Hi,

 

I am trying to load CATIA v5 files into Inventor 2013, which works great. However, the materials applied to the object in CATIA are not being imported. Instead the colors from the "Properties" dialog in CATIA are being applied. Is it possible to somehow maintain the materials? Since the constraints aren't imported either, I would have to reapply the materials for every position of this certain object (for renders), because adding the constraints in Inventor is too much work to be doing again.

 

Thanks in advance for any info on this.

There is no way to do what you want to do.

You will have to manually re-assign materials and assembly constraints.
