Trouble with imported assemblies

Trouble with imported assemblies

Greetings.

I have some students who have imported models as assemblies into WF2 from the THK website. The parts are ballscrew and nut and linear motion rails and sliders..

The models work fine in further assemblies until you come to produce drawings. Then some parts are drawn with purple lines and do not section etc. What is Pro/E telling us?

I have not met this with my rather limited models/drawings - are there suggested fixes?

TIA

re: Trouble with imported assemblies

Hi
Thanks for the many people who responded.

In summary, the problem was that the THK parts were surface models (hence the purple drawings). I did not have success with "solidifying" them but on closer inspection the download site allows a choice of formats. As suggested, using STEP format produced good parts for drawing, animation and explosion.

The students are rushing towards the hand-in on 11 December so I pass on their thanks too.

Best wishes
