SpaceClaim Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I transfer SpaceClaim from my old computer to my new one?

First, uninstall SpaceClaim from your old computer. Once uninstalled, install SpaceClaim on your new computer, and re-use the same license code.

How is direct modeling different from the standard feature tree that is present in other CAD software?

With direct modeling, changes are made to models in a similar way to how changes are made to a text document or spreadsheet. Faces and edges are manipulated by moving them to new locations, extruding them, or removing them from the model. With SpaceClaim, the Structure panel contains the Structure tree, which shows you each of the objects in your design. Objects are displayed in the order in which they were created, or in the order in which they were imported.In a feature-based system, when sketches are changed, those changes then propagate through a standard feature tree.

How is SpaceClaim terminology different from other common CAD terminology?

In SpaceClaim:
  • An array is called a pattern.
  • Boolean operations are executed with the Combine tool.
  • A fillet is called a round.
  • A loft is called a blend.

If my computer crashes, how do I get SpaceClaim back on my computer?

If your computer crashes, re-install SpaceClaim and re-use the same license code. You can retrieve SpaceClaim installers and license code from your MySpaceClaim account. If you continue to experience problems, please contact the SpaceClaim Support Team via SpaceClaim´s Support Overview page at http://www.spaceclaim.com/en/Support/supportoverview.aspx

What is direct modeling?

Direct modeling, also referred to as explicit modeling, means that as you develop a model, you make changes directly to the current state of the model geometry. There is no saved list of features.

What is SpaceClaim´s solid modeling kernel?

SpaceClaim uses the 3D ACIS Modeler (ACIS), owned by Spatial Corporation.
