I’ve been using Dataprep for just one day, and I was blown away by how much can be done, this is quite amazing!
Couple of questions, since I’m not sure for some things how to proceed:
I’m using the “Filter by actor label” to get some of the parts, and it works great to merge actors, but I would like to do the following: I have 3 sub-assemblies which are basically the same thing, but placed inside my main assembly, so I would like to filter each one ( even though their name is the same ) and merge each one into separately, rather than a single big merged part. How do I do that?
Create proxy mesh: is there a way to access the details for the material baking? I’ve used the Merge Actors tool a lot in the past, and there was tons of options, but here everything is set to default, so what if I want to change some settings within the Create Proxy Mesh?
I exported the .STEP from Solid Edge and imported using the traditional Datasmith import option: I notice that objects with transparency are fine, but they can’t be turned 100% opaque for some reason.
Even though I set the opacity level to 1, the mesh is still somehow a bit transparent…and I’m not sure if this is because of the meshes from Solid Edge being corrupted/badly optimized, or something else.
( This is more Datasmith related ): I usually have tons of nuts, washer and so on: does Datasmith consider them as instances? or it is something that I need to set?
Thanks in advance
