How to disable the model tree in 3D PDF

Creator

Hello,

 

To share the model with other company, I export a 3D PDF with solidedge. 

But in the model tree of 3D PDF, I can see all the detail information for each parts.

Can I disable the model tree? Or merge all parts into a single part?

 

thanks for checking

regards Hunter

This maybe a bit of a kludge, but you could export to .stp then reimport to SE then convert to PDF? A lot of effort, but maybe good for your client? Will still have a tree, but without the information

Nice idea @shanefarra

 

I'd like to add a little tip about using a 'Part template' when importing the STP back into Solid Edge.

Hi @Hunter_Han

 

 

 

additionally to that what @shanefarra and @Tushar have said, I would like to bring in mind, that You directly can open/import an assembly into a part without the need of exporting and importing back it via any neutral interface.

 

 

And- with ST10 - now You easily can melt multiple bodies together into one single body, even if the old "Non-Manifold Condition" is there (this IMHO is one of the greatest enhancements of ST10, even as small it is)  and this single part with a single body can be saved as 3D PDF very easily and fast.

I must say we can always rely on you for the most accurate and up-to-date information for innovative and intelligent solutions to problems. You are a great boon to the Solid Edge user community !!

   

Many thanks for the update.

Hi @Tushar

 

 

 

 

wow, many thanks for that answer!

 

Just for a moment I feel extremely constraint about Your words
but immediately they give me the power to enforce my efforts for and with Solid Edge
and this congenial group of Solid Edge users, developers and friends (and non-friends too  Smiley Wink ).

 

Far away from grabbing acknowledgement here, I only can reply and appreciate Your contributions and works for the SE community.

 

And, between You and me, working with Solid Edge still is a pleasure to me and an enjoyment

 

 

 

regards
Wolfgang

I always can read and understand Your English!

So far it is excellent

Alright, now how about the obvious question here. Why not just share a Parasolid file or a JT file?

Jt would be easy and the view is free as well.JT is aslo the ISO standard for visualization!

Hi @RyanM

 

 

but to give the obvious anser:

 

Saving the file as parasolid or JT will give the whole structure information with it and will allow to import this structure back to any CAD system (or at least to any CAD sstem with the ability to open JT and X_T)

 

The initial request - so my understanding was - is to hide any interior and structural information of that design.

 

So at the moment I only see the way using export, import with melting it together into one single solid body

Wolfgang
