        There is not a direct translation from Solid Edge and IGES. First they
must convert their part file to a ".sat" and then take the ".sat" and
convert it to IGES. Also this translation is completely outside of the
Solid Edge package. I was told by our Software support people that the
translator is on the CD for Solid Edge but, it is a separate package.
On the CD there is a subdirectory called IGES and there is a "readme"
file explaining how to install. Hope this helps and please let me know
how things work out. We are in the process of moving from EMS to Solid
Edge here.

i tried suggesting that already but according to them, solid edge can
'save as' three varieties....stl, acis and ems.....the latter two i am
familiar with and the stl is obviously not getting the job done. that
leaves the two i'm clueless about. any ideas??
