Issues when importing a CATIA V5 Assembly or Part into CREO 3.0
Here is my scenario
I am running CREO 3.0 M090
I want to import CATIA V5 Assemblies and Parts into CREO.
I have set up a *.dip file which contains the settings for the CATIA Import operation.
In my *.dip file I am pointing to my CREO *.asm and *.prt start models.
In my CREO start models I have hidden the CSYS and save these models with that condition.
If I create a new part or assembly in native CREO 3.0 using these start parts then the CSYS is hidden.
When I import a CATIA V5 Assembly or part using the same start parts then the CSYS appears.
What am I doing wrong?
Additionally, in CATIA V5 there is a solid called PartBody. This PartBody contains the CATIA V5 solid that I want to import into CREO 3.0. This PartBody in CATIA can contain a solid that is separated and not continuous. Think of a solid seat track that has a part of it removed. See attached picture.
This part is a component of a CATIA V5 Assembly.
when I import the CATIA V5 Assembly, which contains the part above, CREO 3.0 turns this CATIA V5 part into a CREO 3.0 Assembly with each of the sections of the original CATIA V5 part as a separate part in CREO. And the CSYS also show. See picture below:
