Converting mesh to parametric CAD or vice versa

Hi,

I am researching in the areas of parameterizing a mesh model. I know there is a way in fusion where a mesh can be converted to a parametric surface if it has less than 10000 faces, I would like to know if the reverse is possible? Converting a parametric CAD into a mesh with parametric data storing in it? Can anyone give me insights on this process? Is there any software which can also convert parametric data into mesh along with geometry, material etc.

Thank you.

1. Geometry- When you convert a parametric cad file to mesh, it's polygonal sub divisions becomes triangular. Now, as it is sure that you may loose a little bit geometry perfection but that's negligible for mechanical and aesthetic purpose use.

2. Detail or Texture- No, you can not export appearance or texture with a model while you are exporting it to mesh file like obj or stl.
