  • Unable to tweak spine control points when spine is 3D - just me?

    If my spine is 3D (i.e. does not lie in one plane), I am unable to move the control points.  Is there something I'm missing here? Also, if I have a 3D spline that defines the centerline of a formed tube shape, what is the best way to sweep a circle along it's path?  The challenge seems to be drawing the circle at the spline ...

  • Re: Chamfers on Edges Defined by Spines - FAIL

    I've revisited Inventor and Solid Edge and found that they can chamfer spline edges correctly and without issue.  Apparently I was missing some steps at my first attempt.  Currently this issue is filed as a bug report with SpaceClaim; I would like to see them solve the issue. Meanwhile, I've found that the best workaround for ...

  • Re: Create plane for annotations created in a drawing sheet

    An annotation is text or symbols (such as dimensions or notes) that communicate drawing requirements and/or design intent.  It is basically anthing that is not the part.   I am told that older versions of SpaceClaim do exactly what I'm asking for (put sheet annotations on a plane), and that this feature was removed to streamline ...

  • Allow sheet annotations to be 'pinned' to a view

    I'd like Spaceclaim to allow me to 'pin' (or otherwise attach, or anchor) annotations to views, so that the annotations move with the model when the view is moved or scaled. For example, GD&T annotations - if they are not replacing dimensions, they are just sitting in space.  It would be nice if I could right-click the ...

  • Create plane for annotations created in a drawing sheet

    I'd like Spaceclaim to put annotations created in a drawing sheet on a plane, just like it does when annotations are created in a design.

     [quote user="martin kopplow"] ... use the mirror plane to first cut, then mirror. [/quote]  This is exactly what I was attempting.  I do appreciate the perspective, comparing SpaceClaim to other CAD programs.  I reproduced some of my modelling attempts on Autodesk Inventor this weekend, and met many of the same ...

  • Re: Chamfers on Edges Defined by Spines - FAIL

     Interesting - thanks for the workaround.  Ideally, SC (or any CAD program) should create 2 error-free solids when split by any plane that intersects the solid.   I don't know what non-manifold geometry is, but in principle, if the solid is 3mm thick, and the setback of the chamfers are 1.5mm, then the following three planes ...

  • Re: Chamfers on Edges Defined by Spines - FAIL

    Vimal, I see that you've defined your plane via 3 points.  Is that the only difference?  Have you 'Simplified' this solid before you performed the mirror?  Certainly the method of defining the split/mirror plane should not impact the success of an error-free split and subsequent mirror/merge. Why does SC generate ...

  • Chamfers on Edges Defined by Spines - FAIL

    I embarked on my first modelling session with SC 2011+ yesterday, and my experience was very discouraging.  I'm attempting to add chamfers (variable setback) to a solid, which is an extruded set of splines.  The chamfers need to meet at the midpoint (or midplane) of the modified edges.  In other words, if the solid is 2mm thick, ...
