Hi Mconklin, and welcome to the CATIA forum at 3DCADFORUMS.

First, I have no idea what a "dci" is. And I think "pcdims" is CMM Inspection software - right?

Second, is the CATIA data correct? Do you see the points in V4 and after you convert the model to V5?

DCI is a Direct Cad Interface. And I can see the points in catia after it is converted to a v5. I just cant see the points in pcdmis which yes is a CMM software. The points are there because i can scan the part and find them there just hidden:confused:
