I have a need to save an assembly as a parasolid for analysis but I do not want to include the components that I have hidden (as they are an unnecessary complication and make the analysis more complicated).  Before installing SP2 for ST6 today, hidden components in my SE assemblies did not show up in the parasolid, now they do. 

 

How do I prevent unwanted parts from showing up?  I cannot find anything that describes this in SE Options or parasolid options (under "save as translated").

When you do the Save As command and select Parasolid, then choose the "Options" button on that dialog. one of the options is "visible only".

Is there a way to select this "Export displayed only" option (or any other "Save As Translated" options) in code ?

I've looked around the API, but couldn't see where to set those options.

Thanks, Joe
