Config Option to NOT Split Surfaces With G2 Discontinuity

Config Option to NOT Split Surfaces With G2 Discontinuity

When importing a step file or opening a native file, Creo splits a single surface with G2 discontinuity into multiple surfaces. I would like an enhancement of a config option to NOT split the surfaces.

WF5 and Creo 3.0 are the ONLYsoftware that will split the single surfaces into multiple surfaces. This normally wouldn’t be an issue, but when we bring this geometry into

the Mold Design Extension, all those extra edges and vertices cause geom-checks and splitting issues.

Here are some examples of "Other" software importing the same file. Note the multiple surfaces in the PTC products.

Here is the file brought into WF5
