I have SolidWorks files I put through PolyTrans to come up with native Lightwave files. But it gives me lots of "bodyXX" files and then only a .lws to use in Layout. My problem is that I;m animating the model and all the pivot points are everywhere and I want to regroup some pieces. I need to make modeling adjustments.

Is there any way to get the whole model into Modeler besides importing every piece?

Thanks for your help

Use Sean Hyde-Moyer's free STL import tool: http://www.chromecow.com/downloads.htm (in the LScripts link).

Thanks for the input but I get the files as SolidWorks native not STLs. I can't seem to get the engineers to save them any other way
