Frame paths defined by solids are visible

Genius

I've tested an assembly that contains frames where the frame paths are defined by solids as opposed to sketches - a fantastic feature introduced a couple of years ago.   These solids are turned off (re. drawing views, parts lists, physical etc) in Occurance Property as they are in effect just sketch lines.

Clearly these solids should not be displayed. Images attached.

I think this is a case where access to disply configurations would be essential.

Hello,

 

Correct, currently all parts get displayed.  We are currently looking at options that would allow the owner to define the components from ASMs, that should or shouldn't be shown/shared.

 

 

Thanks,

Hello,

 

Until this option is available, there is a work around.  I understand this isn't ideal but I believe it will give you the results you are looking for.

 

1. Open the assembly in Solid Edge and set the display as you would like to have the assembly shared

2. File - Save As - Change 'Save as type:' to JT documents (*.jt)

3. Select Options... and check the following

   a. Single JT document

   b. Include precise geometry

   c. Translate visible parts only

   d. Save PMI data  (optional if you wish not to have PMI)

4. Save

5. Upload the saved assembly JT file.  

 

 

 

Thanks,

Keith

@KeithCain Thanks for the workaround.

To be totally honest, Display Configurations and measurement are the two essentials to make the portal useable with client/presentation.
