I've an .asm object I need to export in STEP format.
The problem is that my client would like to receive only one solid object without any empty spaces.
I wonder what's the best way to fill all empty spaces and blend each element in one ? Do you know if a bolean method could help (Put the asm in a solid cube and look for a bolean operation...)
Solved! Go to Solution.
This could be an extremely complex problem but it all depends on the nature of the assembly. Is there any chance you could post a screenshot of it? Maybe someone will know a clever trick.
I think the best place to start might be with the Simplify Assembly tool.
The oven example in the video would be easy to simplify and save as a part because it's a sort of monolithic item. With a "dispersed" part assembly (see attached) the resultant step file when opened in SE anyway, will be a multibody part, which may be too detailed and from which someone, with a little work, who wanted to reverse engineer it could extract individual bodies. Don't know if that's a concern.
