    How can I convert files from RDM6 to Solidworks?

    For a research project we have made a model in RDM6-Element Finis. We would like to convert that file to .SLDPRT (Solid Works Part file), because we want to print that model using a 3D printer. Unfortunately I have not found any useful information on the internet on this matter. From RDM6-Element Finis, the projects can be exported (saved) to the following file formats: HPGL, HPGL2, POSTSCRIPT, WMF, EMF. What solutions are there available to convert this file? What would you recommend?
    Thank you in advance!

    Can you first convert to a step file then import into Solid Works?

    RDM6 outputs an IGES file I thought? Most 3D printing is done with STL file format. Any capable 3D software package should be able to open IGES and convert to STL.
