Exporting Wireframes

thaddeus_hughesthaddeus_hughes Member Posts: 2
I have a part studio with multiple sketches in it: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/84d7d41e90357905e69d675b/w/70256b1d6d6272608a109cb9/e/1dd5be033460c35e01d4ac53

(I'm evaluating if OnShape will work for this, so this is an example)

I want to export this wireframe so that it can be used in FEA software (IGES, STEP, 3D DXF should all work... there are a lot of such file formats)

Does anyone know if this can be done or any workarounds? Maybe with the help of some featurescript?

    You can export curves, so maybe a FeatureScript that turns all sketch entities into curves (wires)?

    OK, using composite curves allows me to export them, now. Looks like IGES export at least works. This may actually end up being preferable as I can define groups of tubes/wires.

    STEP and Parasolid should also work.
