Limitation: The default layer in Alias is called DefaultLayer and cannot be deleted or renamed.
- Work Around: The translator will rename the layer to "_Default_" so that round trip transfers don't end up with multiple layers called "DefaultLayer".
Limitation: Some trimmed periodic/closed surfaces may not get trimmed properly.
- Work Around: Please detach such surfaces into two before the transfer or convert them to shells, using SurfaceEdit->Stitch function.
Limitation: Some complex multi-level instances might not transfer properly.
- Work Around: Please use Edit->Expand Instances to create real geometry before the transfer
