RE: Pro-E and .stl files

Dear Lists

We could definitely convert Pro-E part file to .stl files, but is
there anyway that convert .stl file back Pro-E file?

I could not find the way, can anyone tell me? I have tried to convert
STL file into IGS, then Pro-E, but this could only get wireframe (Even
worse, this wireframe is very confusing), rather then Solid. Is there
anyway which can achieve this?

Sometimes, I have to do some modification to STL file, but as we know,
STL file is very hard to be modified. ( Within my knowledge, STL file
could only be done some simple cut and maybe add some simple feature,
e.g.. hole and square). and Pro-E could easily to handle its solid

PS. Thank you for the warm response to my previous email. :-:)

Best Regards

I have found that when I make a .stl file on Pro-E (using a SGI ) is
takes RAM and never returns it. This forces all processing to use
swap. The only cure I have found is to exit Pro-E and pull the part
back in. Anybody have a solution to avoid this. I have also tried
clear all the parts out of memory in Pro-E and this does not work
