Short Assembly list

Post by Grossy » Fri Dec 13, 2019 9:29 am

Hi SimLab,

In SL-v2014 the assembly only needs 5 lines in V9.2 it splits the same object into 240 lines.
Why, who needs that?

I imported a very simple dwg(22kb) and I'm afraid what happens when I would import a whole building model!

Hi.. You can reduce that by "Merge on Materials", click on the folder and right mouse.... But you might need to group the parts first... Create new parent.. Then merge..

Hope this helps..

Thanks Tessla,
Just found out that import through the file menu offers an merging option, which doesn't show up when dragging the import file into the scene.

Actually, I never knew that.. Or I have never seen it.. Perhaps its a new feature.. Good to know.. I will try it out..

I just checked.. I normally just drag the object into the scene.. So this time I imported. No wonder I have never seen it.. It's not an option in my version, and I am using the most up-to-date SLC.. Perhaps its only available using a PC or its an old feature, which is not in the newer versions or its never been available using a MAC.. Strange..

Perhaps you can try import/ Export preferences In the file Menü and reset the Option "Do Not Show..."
