    Hi Dr34m3r, if you want to import an iges file you go to the definition task and type the following:

    DEF?>FROM IGES TEMP>name.iges

    where TEMP is a file in the napa folder either on your computer's hard drive or a server depending on your situation. Prior to importing your iges file move it to this location or any folder within the napa folder. If you make your own folder instead of typing "TEMP>" you would use the name of your folder.
    "name" refers to the name of the iges file you wish to import.

    After this you should be good to go, good luck!

    thanks Don !, i found it meanwhile as well.

    also better to define as HULL , so you can use it for other calculation.

    DEF?>FROM IGES TEMP>name.igs HULL
