(OP)
thread560-56141: Surface/Wireframe extraction

Just needed to do this and found a good way to extract all of the edges from a solid.

1. Search using "CTRL+F"

2. Under the 'Advanced' tab set the 'Workbench' = 'Topology' and the 'Type' = 'Edge'.

3. Look in the area to would like i.e. 'Visible on Screen'.

4. "Search and Select" the edges in the desired area.

5. With all of the edges selected, select the 'Extract' tool and all of the edges will be extracted.

6. Hit 'OK'

Done!

Nice. Easier than saving as IGES and making a new file.

What "Topology" means in this context?

Thanks!

The poor man's definition of Topology is "Geometry" (such as points, lines, curves, surfaces, etc)

Ebook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
