Edit Definition is unavailable for imported step file

All,

 

 I am a casual Creo user, therefore my knowledge of the inter-workings of the machine is somewhat limited. I imported a step file, which I believe was created from Creo (but not 100% certain). It has some malformed geometry that I would like to eliminate and/or hide. I read this thread: https://community.ptc.com/t5/Part-Modeling/Editing-of-imported-geometry/td-p/117389

 

The issue is that the model tree only shows the top level object, which is to say the assembly icon followed by the filename.asm. There isn't anything else in the tree nor an arrow to expand. When I right click on that object I don't get an edit definition option. What am I missing here?

 

TIA,

Aaron

If step was of an assembly, you will get assembly structure or Import feature ID. Try turning on the display of features in Model tree using model tree settings on top of model tree.

If possible share a image of step file to review.

Ah ha! That's it. I had already poked around in the settings but just didn't run across the right menu. A second attempt based on your suggestion proved to be the answer. Thanks so much. Now to figure out this IDD editor thing. It should prove interesting.

 

Thanks again,

Aaron
