How to export lines/points from Spaceclaim to Workbench

    • amando.gallardo

      Hello, Maybe this topic is already answered, but I found no info about this in the forum...

      So, How can I export 2D/1D features (points, lines, surfaces) from spaceclaim to workbench. I know there are some options to check inside geometry properties before start any design:

      Solid Bodies, Surface Bodies, Line Bodies, and the Mixed Import Resolution: Solid, Surface and Line.

      However even checking these options nothing is exported to workbench, actually an attach error comes out when I try to open the model.

      Thanks for your comments!

      Hi @amando.gallardo,
      Setting the analysis type to 2D from the properties might be helpful.
      You can also use the Project command to project the features on surfaces or solids. 
      Assigning a cross-section to a line body in SpaceClaim itself makes it easy for the user to visualize in mechanical.
      The following video may be helpful for the same-

      You can also get more details on Body Filtering property and Mixed import resolution from the following references-

      Mixed Import Resolution (

      Solutions to some of the errors can also be found in Problem Situations (

      Hope that helps!
