Import and export options


You can open and insert files from many other modeling applications into SpaceClaim for editing, and save your SpaceClaim designs as many different file types. If you work frequently with non-SpaceClaim files, we recommend that you set your file options to optimize the importing and exporting process for your needs.

To customize import and export options

  1. Select SpaceClaim Options from the File menu to display the SpaceClaim Options window.

  2. Click File Options in the navigation panel on the left.

  3. Select a file type in the panel on the left to change options for just that type of file.

    Descriptions of all options are listed below.

  4. Click OK to save all your changes and close the SpaceClaim Options dialog.


    If you try to enter a value that is out of the allowed range in the Options panelClosed or the SpaceClaim Options dialog, you will see a red exclamation mark icon next to the field. You can hover over the icon to see a tooltip that will explain the valid values for the option.
