Solid Edge ST3 Converting asm. to .step then to .par as one part

Solid Edge ST3 Converting asm. to .step then to .par as one part

(OP)
Hi very new to the site.
I'm getting ready to have an .asm printed in 3D
So I've converted my .asm to a .step file and an .iges, then opened it as a .par, and finally into a .stl file for printing.... problem is when they go to print the part my weld gaps etc. will cause problems to print as one part. So in the .par file I want to fill in the weld gaps .. struggling.. (still learning on ST3).. Any thoughts would help.

Have your designer turn the assembly into a solid part, otherwise you will get a group of loose parts if this is a weldment.
