Parasolid Export of an Assembly

Creator
Creator

Dear all,

 

When I export an assembly to STEP format, the receiver, will get my assembly structure.
How I can obtain the similar results with the Parasolid export?

With the Parasolid export, I will obtain a single level assembly, without the correct part names.

 

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Beppino

Parasolid does not maintain the full assembly structure as STEP does. I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the parasolid format or just the way that NX uses it.

Thanks for the your answer.

I see that SOLID EDGE (for example) maintain the full assembly structure, and my doubt is:
Why NX does not?
Their parasolid engine it is the same.

Kind regards,

If Solid Edge can do it, that leads me to believe that NX simply does not write the information to the file. Why? That is a question that only the developers can answer.
