turning nodes on and off

Discussion in 'Pro/Engineer & Creo Elements/Pro' started by william.m.bowen, Feb 13, 2007.

  1. I have no Pro E experience, and I am trying to import .wrl files into
    another application. This application doesn't support certain nodes
    such as texture or background etc. Is there an easy way to turn these
    on and off.

    I will be relaying this info to a ProE user of an unknown experience

    Any help would be appreciated.

    First, there may be no need to turn anything off as Pro/e exports very
    little beyond the geometry. Then, if this importing program is very
    sensitive to part color, do 'View>Color and Appearance' and with part
    selected, click 'Clear' which will remove part applied colors. Or it may be
    necessary to pick 'All surfaces' and hit the 'Clear' button. Then, do
    'File>Save a Copy', scan down the 'Type' list to VRML>OK. Then click Setup
    and set Parameters and Views to None, OK, OK. This is the best Pro/e can do
    to strip the wrl file of extraneous information. Don't know if it qualifies
    as what you're calling an "easy way" but can't say it's very difficult,
