What is the best way of inserting sufaces into an assembly
I have a model of a pump that I have been sent by the manufaturer, I want to insert it in to an assembly. The step file opens ok and I can see the model in parts studio but it consists of only one part and 3600+ surfaces. I have tried inserting surfaces in to to assembly which has worked in the past but OS crashes or loads forever when I select all surfaces to insert. I have also tried thickening to make parts but again it only allows me to select like 5 parts in a minute because its so slow. I have just started using OS and was loving it untill today. I have also tried converting to solid using freecad. Please help I have wasted 9 hours of my life on it Worth a mention that I dont have another cad system, cheers
