I have a Solidworks model that I would like to convert as a solid model in BRL-CAD. Is there a direct conversion from Solidworks to BRL-CAD? If not, what format should I export my Solidworks model to (catia, acis, parasolid, iges, etc.)?Please tell me which format is best to export to, which will make these solids (NURBS?) that will contain an editable solid module that is not a BOT or facetized.  I am using Windows XP and BRL-CAD 7.18.0.
