Multiple volumes in Mechanica linked mode

Does anyone know a method to import multiple parameterized volumes from UG to Mechanica LINKED mode? I want to retain UG parameters of my volumes (solid) while simultaneously importing other non-volume parameterized geometry from UG. I can use either Mechanica 2001 or Wildfire 2.0. I'm using UG NX 2.0 on a windows PC.

I'm looking for any method to import multiple parameterized solids and/or parameterized non-solid UG geometry into Mechanica linked mode.

Does anyone know if a "demo option" environmental variable exists to allow this?


One other related question: Is the above possible if I were using Pro/E?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Multiple volumes in Mechanica linked mode

If you were using Pro/E, I think your life would be easy. Especially with
integrated mode Mechanica. Your Pro/E parametric solid model runs directly
in Pro/Mechanica. Make any changes in the solid and those link to the
Mechanica model. Are you wanting to optimize geometry in Pro/Mech and have
that link backward to the solid model? If so, I still think Pro/E will do
it & make life easier.

Not sure what you mean on "non-volume parameterized geometry", I guess
surfaces?
