3ds Max :: How To Cut Object With Extruded Spline

Nov 3, 2013

I have model of an insect and I need to cut it into two pices as if plastic toy.
I drew a simple zig zag spline, extruded it, gave it shell for thickness and when I boolean substraction A-B i get 2 halves but without the cut walls- they appear empty. I need the cut to appear as if through a solid object.
Do I have to rebuild those cut walls by hand to make halves appear solid, or is there a faster way?

Maya Modeling :: Moving Source Curve Of Extruded NURBS Object?

Nov 21, 2010

I'm rigging a model of a robot and I have wires (nurbs circles extruded along a curve) attaching to two objects that are on different joints. I have it rigged so that when the first joint moves, half of the CVs of all the wires (in a control cluster) move along with the joint (and, in turn, the object they are attached to). This much works fine, the extruded nurb follows the curve and stays the same diameter from start to finish. My problem starts with the rigging of the second joint (the second joint is the parent of the first joint). I've tried many different ways of rigging it, but as I'm only just starting rigging my thought process isn't quite a straight line yet. Basically my problem is when the source curves physically move, the extruded surface goes twice the distance as displayed in the picture below.

I need to know how to get the extruded surface to always be in the same place as the curve with out breaking the connection.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Sweeping Threads In A Hole

Nov 7, 2012

How to use sweep to successfully put threads in a hole.  Attached is the drawing with a helical coil and an object in two different orientations (A and B).  To the right of that, you can see the path they took for each.  The object rotated from the original position before following the path.  Tried changing the position of the object to sweep, but either it sweeps it 180 degrees from what it is already doing (still wrong) or the program says it is invalid and won't do anything till I put it back in the original rotational position and try again.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Hole Table Formatting - Different Text Depending On The Type Of Hole

Nov 6, 2012

I've got a template with a set of Object defaults for an Inch drawing and a set for a Metric drawing.  I've just noticed that within my metric set, if I insert a hole table with tapped holes, the font on the tapped holes doesn't match the other hole types.  I'm searched around, but all the settings for the hole table style reference the same text style.  (Please see the attached image.)

So is there a way to set a certain hole type to have a certain font or size within a hole table?  Because if there is, I'd obviously like to remove it.....  But I can't seem to figure out where the issue is.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Ultimate 2013 - Cannot Add Hole To Existing Hole Chart

May 22, 2012

I am trying to add a hole to an existing hole chart.  I drop the part into a new drawing, set the ordinate "zero", and add a hole chart by selecting a few holes.  When I attempt to edit the chart: click chart, right click "edit", click add hole, select new holes, right click to create, the "create" selection is greyed out and all I have to choose from is cancel. I searched the forum here but could not find a reference to this a know issue.  Am I doing something wrong or is this a glitch of 2013. 

We are running win7 x64 machines and this happens on both the 2013 Ultimate and Premium editions of the product.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Can't Select Hole Edges When Creating Hole Table

Nov 19, 2012

I have had this problem intermittently for a few weeks since going to Inventor 2013 SP1.1.  I have a part within an assembly and that part has holes created in it before assembling it with other parts.  Now when I try and create a hole table in a drawing of the assembly I cannot select hole edges and the hole table is blank when trying to create it automatically from view selection.  I originally thought it may be an alignment issue but I have since aligned everything correctly and it still persists.  I can create the hole table if I import in just the part into the drawing but it will not allow me to create the table on the whole assembly. 

I can also create the hole table if I use "centred pattern" and create cross hairs on all of the holes however it does not give me correct annotations for the holes as shown in attachment and I can manually change the annotations but seriously this should not be required.  As shown in the screen shot it reads as A1 down to K1 instead of A1 to A10. .

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Logo - Creating Hole When Object Folded Over Itself

Jul 25, 2013

I'm trying to rebuild a logo in CorelDraw, and I'm having troubles with it creating a hole when the object is folded over itself. 

The curve is closed, and it's one object that loops around like a figure 8. I've attached a photo for you to see what I mean. The top is the original logo, and the bottom is what's happening when I try to fountain fill the curve. How can I layer an object over itself without it doing that?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Placing 3D Object Raised On Surface Of Another 3D Object

May 2, 2012

I've already started using the AutoCad 3D.

how to put a 3D object on top of the another 3D object in autocad"! E.g.,I want to put a 3d object of one leaf (raised 1") on top of the vase, so that the edges of the leaf are placed completely on the surface of the vase.

I extruded the leaf 1" first, then tried to copy it on a solid cylinder of a vase, but it didn't work!!! It seems to be simple, maybe not!

AutoCAD 2013 :: File Size With Extruded Objects

Nov 7, 2013

I've been working on 3D models and noticed when i take a circle and extrude it along a path (usually a spline) it adds a lot to a file size. The objects are used as electrical conductors on power poles. After a few city blocks of this the model file size becomes basically unusable.

So my question is why does extruding a circle along a curved path increase the file size so drastically and is there another alternative to keep the file size down?

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Angle Either End Of A Piece Of Material After It Is Extruded

Dec 14, 2012

I'm new to autodesk. I cannot seem to figure out how to angle a piece of material after it has been extruded.

For example, If I create a shape ie. a 10mm square and extrude the shape to a length of say 100mm, and want to miter either end at 45 degrees so as I can join them to create a 90 degree angled piece....

How do I angle the end of the extruded piece?

I know it can be done with a simple chamfer but this is not ideal when dealing with more complicated shapes.

I am using autodesk 2012.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Propagate Extruded Cuts To Components

Feb 5, 2012

I have two simple parts: an (almost) rectangular prism and a simple polygonal extrusion. The polygonal extrusion needs to be situated inside the prism, so I placed them in an assembly constrained the polygonal extrusion made a sketch on the extrusion with a simple 1/8 outward Offset of the profiledid a Model >  Modify Assembly > Extrude using the profile and Through All selected removed the polygonal extrusion as a participant to get the desired effect (in the photo, the offset is enlarged for clarity):

This works perfectly at the assembly level. However, I would also like this cut to be propagated to the rectangular part itself (the part through which the cut passes). When I open the part file, I still see the original part without the cut. Is there a way I can cut the part itself without recreating the shape in the part to be cut?

I've tried using Model > Create > Derive with the intention of using Model > Modify > Combine with an operation mode of Cut, but when I Derive the part, it is placed in the wrong location:

AutoCAD Inventor :: Only Allow Sketch Entities If Directly Associated To Extruded Feature

Aug 12, 2012

I have a simple ipt file (attached)

It is a simple rectangular plate with 13 holes through on a pitch circle.

I have used a "circle" to construct the "Pitch Circle" and a "line" to construct the top dead centre of the circle.

I have then added a circle to use as a hole feature and used the circular pattern to make the holes equi-spaced around the circle.

This circle is then extruded "Through All".

My question is, How can I eliminate the construction "Circles" and "Lines" from the following code, only allowing sketch entites that are directly associated to an extruded feature to be accepted?

Public Function WriteDxfSketchEntities(Doc As PartDocument, sketch As PlanarSketch) As Boolean
Dim partCompDef As PartComponentDefinition

AutoCAD 2013 :: Fillet Edge Of Extruded Spline Shape

Aug 16, 2013

Autocad 2014.

I have the outline of a solid body guitar that I drew with spline, extruded and now trying put a 1/2" fillet radius along the edges, top and bottom.

Using the 3d fillet command produces an error, and extruding a profile along the edge path doesn't work either.

Attached is the spline outline, the red part is what needs the fillet, but the white part does not. However, they can't be extruded into a 3d solid unless their joined!
