How to convert an assembly into one solid model (single body) ?

By Matt on 04 Jan 14:31 3 answers 35289 views 0 comments

I'm trying to export my assembly into a step file, wich won't contain the invidual parts but would be displayed as one whole solid. I'm struggling to achieve that. I got the question how to merge multiple parts (as an assembly) into one single body in creo 2.0 . Thanks.

    Merge all components (.prt) of your assembly (.asm) to one single solid body, while the (.asm)-file is opened in session and the window is active. Then save the file as a STEP-file. When you open right now this STEP-file in any CAD-Application, you will see in the model tree "one" imported solid feature only.
    A second way: save your assemly as a "shrinkwrap". Open this saved file and save right now as a STEP-file. The result is the same as above described.

    You can save the assembly in any format (i.e. : step, igs, parasolids, etc.)
    While saving select option as surface. whole assembly will be saved as a single part.

    IF YOU MAKE ONE SOLID PART IN ASSEMBLY THEN USE MERGE IN COMPONENT OPERATION.
