Exported assembly as .IGES loses parts of the assembly


Hello all, I'm ne to the fourm and am hoping some one has some insight to why this is happening.


I am trying to export an assembly as an .IGES file type so that I can import the model into Fanuc roboguid. When I do this though most of the model is missing. 


My .IGES export options are set as "Trim surfaces as NURBS (type 128)" this is what the Fanuc roboguid software specifically says to use for solid edge. 


The problem isnt with roboguid because when I open the .IGES file in solidedge the model is still missing most of the parts. 


I'm running solid edge ST6


Thanks in advance for any help!

If any of your geometry is a "Construction" body/surface (vs. Design), then you also need to turn those options ON in the IGES option form as they are OFF by default thus causing it not to export them.
