jlink: 3D import gets wrong file extensions and import in one monolithic part

Hello,
 
I converted an 3D Assembly to the neutral format IGES (see STOSSDAEMPFER.igs in folder input).
 
An then I want to convert this file to a Pro/E model with CREO3 jlink.
Here my code:
Model model = session.ImportNewModel("C:\\my_path\\STOSSDAEMPFER.igs", NewModelImportType.IMPORT_NEW_IGES, ModelType.MDL_ASSEMBLY, "STOSSDAEMPFER", null);
model.Save();
 
The result of this conversion is in folder output.
 
Now I have following questions:
1. The Assembly and Sub-Assembly files (stossdaempfer.prt.1, stossdaempfer_daempfer.prt.1, stossdaempfer_gehaeuse.prt.1, stossdaempfer_motor.prt.1 and stossdaempfer_schwimmlager.prt.1) have the file extensions .prt instead of .asm. When I open one of my Assembly files in Pro/E GUI I get the error message e.g. "'STOSSDEAMPFER' cannot be retrievied". When I change the file extensions .prt to .asm of my Assembly files I can I open the Assembly files in Pro/E GUI.
What is the reason of the wrong file extensions .prt of my Assembly files?
 
2. Can I configure that only one monolithic part is created?
 
Thank's for your hints, Thomas

Hello,

 

the reason of the wrong file extensions was the calling code. Normally the output are asm and prt files (see output.zip).

 

The question remains: How can I configure, that the ouput is one monolithic part?

 

Thank you in advance, Thomas
