Instances (i.e., parts or subassemblies) that are hidden, suppressed, or
pruned in the model file being imported are not converted. Therefore, such
instances will not appear in the V5 Product Structure after the import.
Open an existing or empty product structure document.
With the right mouse button, select the product under
which the I-DEAS model is to be imported from the Product Structure.
From the Insert an Existing Component dialog
box, set the Files of type field to .idi and navigate to the
directory where the I-DEAS model files are present.
Select the model file to be imported. The model will
be imported under the selected product.
If the model file contains multiple top level assemblies,
each assembly will be made the child of a dummy top level assembly, with
the name of the input model file in the product structure. If the
model file contains only parts, the converted CGR file will become the
child of this dummy assembly.
