Extracting Geometry from a Solid model assembly in Creo 5.0

Hi All,

I have a step file of an assembly, and would like to extract a geometric feature (a set of curved surfaces) so that I can create a model based on them directly. I have found a similar solution on the support forums but the post is out-dated and vague, and I cannot get the solution to work on my system. 

 

more details:

The copy Geometry button is greyed out, so is the publish geometry button. 

 

Thanks, Nasim

Assuming that you do not have access to Copy Geom functionality I would suggest the following.

 

Create a copy of the surfaces you want to reference from the imported STEP solid geometry.

Determine a Csys that you can align to your derivative model you may want to create a new one rather than using the default Csys.

Export a STEP file and select only the newly copied surfaces for export.

 

Import the STEP export of your surfaces into a new part and use it to design your new part.

 

Guide to export a quilt using STEP interface, it is not intuitive in the UI.
