Conversion of body to DesignModeler format failed

      I have a Creo model which is a surface and has parameters. I want to do a 2D analysis with the parameters, so I used the CAD interface to transfer the geometry. The geometry and parameters transfer over fine into DesignModeler. I sketched a fluid domain and created surface from sketch. When I try to boolean subtract the new surface with my Creo surface, I get the error Conversion of body to DesignModeler format failed. Is there a solution to this?nThe boolean subtract works if I import the CAD as a STEP file, making me think it's an issue with importing a native Creo file, but the STEP file doesn't transfer parameters, so I'd prefer not to use it. For that reason, I cannot use SpaceClaim either.n

      I didn't want to use SpaceClaim, because I wanted the parameters I already had in Creo. I found a workaround to my issue by making the Creo model a solid, and then using trim in DesignModeler to make it into a surface.n
