EXPORT ASSEMBLY IN POSITION AND AS ONE PART
mauricio_bremer Member Posts: 6 ✭
So I made an assembly of a "sphere" made out of pentagons and hexagons by mating their faces but when I try to export the assembly (as STP or parasolid) all the parts are separated and in their original position (not mated). The only way I found to keep the assembly arrangement is to export it as STL but I need this part as a solid to modify it.
I know there is a derived feature and I could translate each part to the right position and then unite it (boolean). The problem is there are a lot of different parts and it would be a pain in the neck to place mate connectors to each part individually.
Is there a way to export an assembly (as STEP or parasolid) as one part in the assembly position?
Edit: Oops, I forgot to include the example I made: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/41d9157f2726349bd842ab5c/w/8f97295d9e416c940046c91a/e/60d92b0c9c1fba3570b076f7
Yeah looks like a good workaround! Thx
