Export STL of Assembley with all parts in context

christopher_starkechristopher_starke EDUMember Posts: 8 EDU
Hello,
I have a large assembly that uses many unique and standard parts. I would like to export the assembly as an STL with individual parts. I would like it that when I open the parts in another software like Blender that all the parts open where they should in the exact same place as in the assembly. Currently, all the unique parts that were made in a part studio open correctly in context however the non-unique parts are not there and the standard content all opens on the origin clumped together.

Is there any way to fix this? Perhaps a way to move the assembly to a part studio and automatically making all the parts unique? I would really prefer to not have to reassemble all the parts in a part studio manually if possible.

    Create a new part studio in cotext.
    Do a transform->copy in place
    Select all parts

    Then export the part studio
