I am currently using Creo 188.8.131.52
Users at my company have been through many Creo related changes in the last year or so.
These changes include version upgrades and configurations
Prior to these changes I was able to import IGES data and select flat surfaces on the data for sketching,
I can no longer do this. Can anyone explain why?
This seems to be sue to surface quality, if in case imported surface is not planer, it cannot use for operations as extrude and all...
It will be a good option to confirm about surface quality and I think it will specific top data set or possibly to specific to surface in imported data. Which Creo version are you working with?
Thank you MaheshSh.
I am working with Creo 184.108.40.206
I could understand the surface quality if the data was coming from another software.
In my situation, it occurs with data from all sources including my own session of Creo.
If I export data out and bring it back in immediately I am unable to utilize the "flat" surfaces.
This is true for surfaces that have been created as using "FILL" and "EXTRUDE".
I believe that the .stp format does not have this issue - only .iges. It seems like the .iges
format itself has changed.
It is working for me, imported file (without template) in Creo 5.0. Created an extrude referring one of the surface in imported data.
Check attached video, am i missing something in that?
Your video describes the process correctly.
Your help is appreciated very much. I will continue to
look for a solution .
With Best Regards,
Try with default Creo session i.e. without Windchill (if using)/config.pro/config.sup...
Or try in Creo 220.127.116.11 on one of the machines.
I just launched Creo without Windchill and without any configuration mods (blank config.pro).
The same issue persists with the sample file and with a new file created through the default session.
Maybe there is a template issue?
yes, may be template...
When importing Iges, uncheck "Use template" (if checked) and try.
Still if it reproducible, you may contact PTC Technical support.
Thank you for your help MaheshSh.
Unfortunately, it is the same even without the template.
I will try PTC Technical support as you have suggested.
