Note: as of Jan 2016, is not possible to import the geometrical data of a 3D model (Solidworks), please check back for future version ability
If a specific format is not listed above (i.e. ANSYS) AutoPIPE Vessel cannot import that type of file at this time. See the 2 available options:
1. use another application to convert your file into a format that is listed above for AutoPIPE Vessel to import.
2. Log a service request for the missing format to be imported. The more request for a feature, the quicker the feature will be added to the program.
