Import and Merge Geometry

Import and merge a saved model with the current model.

  1. Select File > Import or press Ctrl+I.
  2. In the Import File dialog, select a file. You can filter by file type and show previous versions of models.
  3. Click Open.
  • The imported model is inserted as an assembly under the top-level folder in the Model Browser. To move the imported model within the model hierarchy, drag the folder in the Model Browser.

Resolve Geometry Import Errors

Resolve geometry errors that are automatically detected on import.

When you import a file, Inspire Extrude checks for geometry errors in the model. If it finds any problems, you will receive the following error message:

  1. Click Yes to attempt to repair the errors.
    Note: You will not receive a confirmation as to whether all errors were corrected.
  2. To check whether all parts in the model are solid, right-click the column header in the Model Browser, select the Mass checkbox, and click OK. All parts that have nonzero masses are solid geometry.
