Convert Entities

Question asked by Carlos Marquez on Jul 2, 2015

is there a way to suppress a solid body after i've converted the edges using convert entities and only keep the properties of the new shape and not the solid surface? I'm asking because i work a lot with 3D wire forming. The quickest and simplest way to design 3D wire frames for us is by first using a solid shape and converting all lines with tangent corners. However, when i apply a metal property to the wire frame, the solid body properties is also included. so rather than having a 3D wire frame weighting 2 pounds, I get a weight of 50 pounds.

Please let me know if anyone else has the same issue. Thank you in advance.
