convert Mesh to NURBS Surfae by MeshtoNURBS command in command bar finaly you can save your model in iges or step format .

Hey there,

There's a file converted in Workbench now. You just select a file and what you want to export it as.

Feel free to email me with any questions - bobby@grabcad.com.

Have a great day.

I do this a lot in my line of work. Geomagic is really the best option. The software is expensive but you might be able to get a trial version. I think they even have a snap-in module for Solidworks now.
