Convert to Parasolid
Hi all   I have an issue that perhaps someone has come across and has a resolve.  My customer has insisted that I provide my designs in a parasolid format os opposed to STEP as I have done for years.  My designs can get fairly large with several hundred  solids and fasteners  250 to 750 MB in size.
 Being old school ( besides being actually old) I design as level based as opposed to an assembly. I use various levels and sub levels with sub levels 
 My Customer uses Solid works 
 To translate my files  I do as follows ---- Assembly - level to reference - the open the created file - then export to  XT  or XB     

 The problem I am encountering is that the '" Text"  in the Part references tree of the Sub levels does not come thru in Solid works .   

 Kubotek feels it may have to do with the format of the level numbers ex : 4.4.1   It doesnt like the periods.
Has anyone come across this or have a work around or solution?
