About Disabling Import Validation in a Session at the Model Level
When import validation is enabled by default for a Creo session, you can disable the validation of models after their import to Creo or after you have opened them as non-native models using the Creo Unite technology. To disable the import validation of a part or assembly model while it is in session, right-click the imported or opened model or assembly component in the Model Tree and click Import Validation > Disable Import Validation. If the model you imported or opened in Creo has validation failures, you can open the Notification Center, right-click the import validation failure notification represented by the yellow triangle in the Notification Center, and click Disable Import Validation on the shortcut menu.
When you disable import validation at the model level, Enable Import Validation is the only command that is available on the Import Validation menu. The following commands are not available:
Repair Imported Geometry
Use Alternate Mass Properties or Use Calculated Mass Properties
Ignore Solidification Check or Enable Solidification Check
When you disable import validation at the model level:
The validation failures, errors, and warnings of the model or component are removed from the Notification Center and are not reported for the new models.
Solidification failures of parts and the bodies of parts are not reported by the Import Validation Report and the overall import status validates the import as successful.
Disabling the import validation of an assembly component is not recursive in an imported or opened assembly model. As a result, the assembly model consists of a mix of components, with import validation individually enabled or disabled at the component level.
When import validation is disabled at the component level, and the components fail, their validation failures are not reported to the Notification Center. Therefore, the parent assembly may also fail.
As a result, you cannot perform the following remedial tasks:
Access Import DataDoctor (IDD) to repair defective or incomplete geometry.
Use alternate or calculated mass properties to calculate the validation score.
Ignore the solidification failure of parts and their bodies.
To restore and access all commands on the Import Validation menu, right-click the imported or opened model or the component of an imported or opened assembly, and select Import Validation > Enable Import Validation.
