Please forgive me as i am a new lightwave user. (My lightwave arrived on friday) but i am trying to find a way of importing a model from Unigraphics V18 into lightwave for animating.

Any help very much appreciated : )

What's the extension? I haven't even heard of this format... Which doesn't bode well...

The extension is .prt
It's a 3D CAD package and i have some models of machinery which i would like to animate in lightwave. I can export from UG to DWG,DXF formats if that is of any help?

DXF would work within LW itself.

Also, you might be able to use an object conversion program such as the excellent Okino Computer Graphics Polytrans for this - but I'm not sure what formats Polytrans supports, but it supports quite a large number.
