Extract an object from a STEP model?

By Leland Parker on 04 Jun 17:11 2 answers 0 comments

Does anyone know of a way to select part of a STEP model that has been loaded into Creo and save one or more of the model's objects as a new STEP file?

I'd like to just indicate which object to save separately rather than deleting everything but what I'm interested in. Seems like there should be a direct way to extract objects, but searching Creo online help for "extract" or "explode" gives results for very different functions than this "partial export" function I'm looking for.

    Only a guess based on SolidWorks functionality, but if I select individual bodies of an imported model like a STEP file, then choose Save - As, I can save just the selected bodies out as part of a new file.
