TopSolid to Blender with layers?

I'm starting to use Blender for rendering and animations does anyone have a suggestion of which file format will preserve TopSolid layers so they import into Blender or a CAD translation software?

Thank you,

Re: Animate Assembly

Yes, but not as complicated just the basics and I would like to do it in TopSolid Wood, not TopSolid7 if possible.

Animate Assembly

Are there any good tutorials on how to use the animate tool? Most of the tutorials are for TS7 not for TS Wood?

I would like to be able to animate a simple rotation of an assembly.

Thank you,

Insert driver block assembly into a new assembly?

I've created a furniture item inside a driver block and I would like to insert it "as is" into a new document without having to create a new block to insert it in? It imports into the new document fine if I create a block to insert it into, but I can not import it if there is not block.
