Please help me out how can I open or view the .jt file in Creo 3.0 and save it in other format (like .igs etc.)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Creo doesn't like hiding primary solid geometry.
However, if you have additional solid features, you can move the import feature in the tree to hide it.
I'm not sure what you are doing but it works great for me by specifically adding solidgeom (not the import feature, that will not hide solid geometry) to a layer and then hiding that layer.
I guess that Sohaib Imran wants to hide geometry represented by import feature, only. His model contains another solid features probably related to import feature shape. In such situation, he cannot use you layer solution, because it hides all solid geometry.
Hi all, sorry for replying to late.
Well thats too bad, i wanted to hide the import feature so that I could work on the reverse engineering that I am doing ont he part easily by just picking up references from the import part. I guess I have to do it the hard way then.
I will try using the layers as suggested by Stephen Williams.
Sometimes CREO really get on my nerves...
Thank you for your kind replies guys.
did you turn imported geometry into surfaces ? See below
1.) I have geometry imported as solid
2.) Edit definition ... click Surface button
3. Now I have surface geometry
4.) I can select Import Feature in model tree and hide it
Yeah turning on that feature makes the solid as surface, but I dont want a surface of the part, i want solid part to take references as it is less confusing and required for my work, and creo just doesnt hide imported solid part, so my problem stands.
I expected that you need to get reference geometry that you can use for building solid geometry -AND- that you can hide. Therefore I suggested you to redefine import feature.
You may also be able to create a part simplified rep and exclude the feature. Using this will require using simplified reps of any assembles it is used in in order to select the part simplified rep, which is avoided by the assembly technique I mentioned earlier.

Make a layer. Add SOLIDGEOM to that layer, not the import feature. You'll have to use query select (or RMB pick from list to get to SOLIDGEOM. Then hide that layer.
You could assemble the import and the target part and create the target part in the assembly context, allowing you to hide the import as required. If done with a bit of care you can even avoid creating references between the target and the assembly and the import, but it depends on what you want to do.
