I exported an .ibl-file for a turbine blade from CFturbo. The file is created and I can see it in the explorer, but I cannot import in Creo. The file is not shown in the import window of Creo. Any help would be much appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
When you attempt to open the file, did you change the Type in the dialog to .ibl File? Creo doesn't automatically show you every type of file it will read, it defaults to its own file types (.prt, .asm, etc.) If you want to read in a STEP file or IGES, or in your case IBL file, you specifically have to indicate as such in that little drop-down menu.
Creo has a file name length restriction that other software may not have.
Checking the file length is one of the first things to remember to check, especially if the file name does not show up in the open file menu list. Creo will not show a file in the dialog whose name exceeds its naming length limitation.
