Parasolid Export Options DialogKeyCreator \ File \ Export \ Parasolid-Export \ Parasolid-Export-Options-Dialog
The following settings are available from the Parasolid Export Options dialog. When you have finished making your selections in the dialog box, click on the OK button option.
This pull-down list can be used to choose the version of Parasolid you wish to use when writing the .X_T or .X_B file. This is important if you are exporting Parasolid files for use in systems that are based on older Parasolid versions.
Binary File Save Mode
NOTE: This switch only applies when you are exporting a Parasolid binary file (.x_b) instead of a Parasolid text file (.x_t)
Heal Model After Conversion
If this option is checked ON (default), the resulting parasolid entities are healed using the Parasolid kernel.
Verify Parasolid Entities Generated
If this option is checked ON, the resulting parasolid entities are checked and any errors found on them are reported as part of the data in a progress dialog.
Export Planes and Vectors as Burst Wireframe Geometry
When selected, planes and vectors are exported as burst wireframe geometry.
Indicate Exported Geometry Base Location
When selected, you are prompted to select the origin for the entities to be exported. When cleared, the default origin (0, 0, 0) is used.
Export Entities Relative to Active Construction Plane
When selected, the entities are transformed so they are relative to the active construction plane.
NOTES: When exporting a Parasolid file, the selected entities are scaled to meters (default Parasolid units) before saving the file. There is no provision to set the units information in a Parasolid file. Topology changes may arise in the following situations: Non-manifold solids or sheet bodies may be converted to two or more manifold solids or sheet bodies. Multi-lump solids or sheet bodies may be separated to two or more single lump solids or sheet bodies. Multi-shell solids or sheet bodies may be converted to two or more solids or sheet bodies. In general, it is probably best to export as a text file to ensure compatibility when translating between systems.
