Does anyone know of a quick way to take an assembly and save it as a filled solid part. I often send files to customers and need to find a way to send assemblies without any internal geometry.
I did a pretty thorough write-up on this earlier, but now that the thread #'s changed with the updated forums, I cannot find it. Here is one reply I made that is very similar, although a bit brief.
Here is another response, although it is not the illustrated one that I was hoping to find:
Just save the assembly as a part
Or a step file (.step) or parasolid (.xt)
There are several in SAVE AS, check which would suit the best.
When you save it as a part, you only have the option to save with external surfaces, external components, or all components. I would like the part to be filled solid. With the external components option, you still get some internal geometry.
