I have been a CATIA user for some time and whenever I need to make a
translation (get out CAD data from CATIA) it seems to be a matter of quality
in the CATIA surfaces, the specialized converter can help you a lot but it
won't correct any geometry, so first, make sure your CATIA model don't have
overlaping surfaces and /or gaps.
For Pro/E, for example, there is an utility converter called " pro_from_cat
", it works very well, so if the CATIA model is Ok, you can get a solid
in Pro/E very quickly with out the need to IGES.
I hope this help,
