IronCAD -> SolidWorks using FeatureWorks

Just wondering whether anyone has had experience bringing IronCAD files
into SolidWorks and what kind of results they had? I'll probably have
an opportunity later this week to try translating a moderately complex
assembly, and I'll want to use FeatureWorks to try to recoup parametric
flexibility. Is it best to translate out from IronCAD using IGES?
Step? ACIS? Does IronCAD translate out Parasolid? Does it work to
translate out from the assembly file, or must one individually tranlate
out parts?
TIA

Hi Spork,
Ironcad 3.0 and up will output Parasolid. IC doesn't have an assembly environment. All parts, whether 1 or 1000 live in a "scene". SW will recognize a multi part parasolid as an assembly.
Regards
Mark
