Solidify Resulting Geometry

I want to shrink wrap an assembly. I followed video tutorial on PTC:

http://learningexchange.ptc.com/tutorial/437/creating-a-shrinkwrap-feature

Click shrink@wrap, then select subset, then select Autocollect all solid surfaces. No problem so far.

Problem:

Try to click Solidify Resulting Geometry but it is greyed out.

I have tried creating a real simple part and assembly which is attached.

Any help appreciated,

John

Re: Solidify Resulting Geometry

John,

Add a blank part with default datums to your assembly.
Select this part in the model tree and make it active.
Now execute the shrinkwrap command and all should be good from this point forward.
Needs to be done in the part level.

Hope this helps,
Don Anderson
