I am struggling for 3D modeling to represent real machine configuration on 3D model.
I found out a suitable 3D configuration on example file, but it seems export scenen only allows all 3D configuration in the 3D model.
Can you kindly share with me how to export only single 3D model from another 3D model?
Thank you in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
this depends on what you're trying to accomplish.
If you just need the graphics of an object, you can simply open the window of that object in 3D and select "Export Graphics". You can open every object in 3D with the context menu command "Open in New 3D Window".
If you want to have animation structures and Animatable Objects as well, you select "Export Object". This command is only available for classes without origin (which is true for virtually all classes"). If you have an object instance you want to export then, you first need to go to its class and export that object.
The third case would be to export a full Plant Simulation object with all simulation and animation data - this function can be found in the context menu of the class objects in the class library as "Save Object as...".
Thank you for your reply.
Based on your comments, the third option looks suitable for me. So I tried save objects as to export simulation objects and animation data. Unfortunately, when I shift the 2D model to 3D after load the saves as object file, the 3D models show only default configurations.
It means annimation file seems not included when the object export (saved object as...)
When you load an .obj file, 3D data is only loaded if 3D is active at that time. I guess, 3D was switched off while you loaded the file.
In the 3D Edit ribbon, the panel "File" on the left border contains those items. There is the group "Export Scene" with the two entries "Export Graphics" and "Export Object".
Yes, that's why the command is inside that submenu.
However, you can always open a window for a single object and go to its class.
