I have a blade housing that requires a continuos radius around the profile. It is not a full radius. When I shell the blade, it looks like the raidius wants to continue. I was told I had to use two fillets and the particial radius will not work. However, the continuous radious in the customers requirement. Is there a way to shell this part correctly?
are there any other analysis tools available to find the minimum internal wall thickness in a part? I'm aware of the cross-section tool, but that only analyzes an area the user has already noticed. In a prismatic part with several cross-holes and features (cavities), it could be easy to miss a thin spot that could give up under internal pressure just by 'eyeballing' the part with Hidden Edges turned on.
I guess I could try the 'unground and move the part thru a sectional plane' trick, but I think it would be too haphazard, especially if the weak point is not thru a principal plane.
Is there a tool I'm missing or maybe something that has been added in newer releases? Maybe this is too much analysis to ask of a modeling package.

When I use the rip commandment a message appears " for proper folding the model should have uniform thickness equal to the model parameter thickness. Please set the proper thickness in the sheet metal styles to match your model".
I am using the RetainWallVertical subassembly with a created gutter subassembly attached to the wall and a DaylightGeneral subassembly attached to the gutter assembly. My cut slope parameter is set to hold at 1.5:1. I would like to use a target (feature line or alignment) to daylight to and have the wall height adjust accordingly. Problem, I am not able to use a target other than a surface for daylighting. I can use my existing ground surface, which I am daylighting too, but I can't adjust the target point.
The 2013 .NET API exposes just 10 of the 22 PartDataFields for Pipe objects. WTh (Wall thickness) is not one of them so I'm attempting to get it via Late Binding. This lisp code works, where (vl-sel) is just a helper function to select an object and convert it to a vla-object:
I am experiencing a problem in 2013. In part builder, I am trying to add wall thicknesses to the simple cylinder. I was able to add options for inside diameter and set floor thickness to a list and add options for that, but when I try to set wall thickness to list instead of constant, I get an error in the value menu.
Everything disappears and in red at the bottom, I get a message about an error in calculations. I even tried temporarily deleting the With from any calculations, but I still got the error. I have had no problems doing this in 2011 or 2009.
I made a pipe network in one drawing, d-reffed it to another, drew parts in profile.
Then I realised that I needed to show the outside walls of some pipes in profile. We don't normally display them. And I found that the wall thickness was wrong. I eventually figured out how to edit the wall thickness, and I have it working right in the source drawing. (I had to swap parts to get it to update.) But the host drawing is not updating.
So if I go to pipe properties in the source drawing, it gives a wall thickness of 165mm (correct). If I go to the same pipe in the host drawing, and go the the pipe properties, the wall thickness is 75mm (wrong).
how to trigger an update? I've swapped parts back and forth to different sizes, synchronized, SetNetworkCatalog and done PartCatalogRegen in both drawings.
These will be family table parts and assemblies but just to keep it simple for now lets look at non family table parts and assemblies.The attachment is a drawing of a casting, a machine part that is made from the casting and an assembly that uses the machine part.
The casting will have a drawing that has no BOM.The machine part will have a drawing that has a BOM that calls out the casting.The assembly will have a drawing that has a BOM that calls out the machine part.
In the models:
I would like to have an assembly and a machine part the is linked to the casting part so if the casting part changes the machine part and the assembly changes.
In the drawings:
I would like to be able to use existing iproperties or user defined ones and use one parts list style so I can create a drawing of the casting, create a drawing of the machine part where the bom calls out the casting description and part number and a drawing of the assembly that calls out the machine description and part number.
I have a finished floor plan with 5.5" thick walls, but now i want to make all my walls thicker without changing the size of my rooms. What i can do to achieve this. I tried locking the wall dimensions before changing their thickness but it still shrunk my room sizes.
I have drawn an existing building thats needs a renovation. In the project i need to add 100mm insulation to the external side of the outer walls. Are there any way that i can add theese 100mm to my existing walls but only show the new 100mm in new construction ?
How I would change both the model and paper space thickness of a line in AutoCAD 2004? I've tried changing "line thickness" and "line weight" in the properties dialog box but it doesn't seem to matter whether it's 0 or 9,999,999 or any number, it just looks the same, in both the model space and paper space views.
I have a drawing someone else did that uses polylines of different thickness so I have tried to figure out how they did it. Again, looking at the properties dialog box it seems to make no difference what I set the "line thickness" or "line weight" properties to...the line just stays the same size regardless.
I want to change line thicknesses because I'm designing a surface water pipe layout...I want the pipes to be a lot thicker than the lines that represent the actual building so that they will stand out when I plot the drawing.
We are looking for a workflow example of developing casting models into machining models.
Typically our castings are made from different materials (Fig-1) and then machining (Fig-2) are created from these castings.
Is creating the casting as an iPart (with different materials) and then deriving the machining from the casting the proper method?
Doing it this way seems to force us into making a machining for each casting material instead of just one machining that is an iPart. How should this be set-up for BOM purposes and for use with Vault (Base Version)?
I have a part that is designed to be made from a casting. In my workflow it makes more sense to create the as machined part first and then base the casting on the machined part usually by using save as and then deleting the machined features. I understand that you can easily go the opposite direction by creating the cast and then creating a derived part that you apply the machining features to.
I tried to derive the casting in this way hoping that you could just suppress of delete features without altering the associativity between the two files but it appears that the derived part doesn't "know" about the features on the original, it's just a solid.
It would seem that this workflow would be a no brainer since most of the time the casting depends on the finished part which depends on the design specifications, so am I missing something or is there really no way to do what I want to do without having to go the messy route of having to manually alter two separate parts every time I alter the design?
I am working on a building that will have a cornice running along the top of the wall. This is easily handled by a wall sweep. However, at a point along the length of the wall, the wall will have an arch along the top of it. I tried adjusting the profile of the wall, but the parapet (wall sweep) does not conform to the curve of the wall.How would you model a curved wall with a cornice.
This is the first time I experience a major problem with Revit 2012. I created a duplicate of an 8" concrete masonry wall for my student project. Then I selected the Edit option in the Structure to change the rendered material to concrete masonry. Suddenly the program freezes and crashes. A window pops up stating that Windows has detected a problem with Revit and must shut the program down. I've everything since my last save. As of now, I recreated a duplicate of the masonry wall I need and started drawing some of the walls for my project but I'm afraid to experiment with other materials. Background Information about my computer: I downloadeda free version of Revit 2012 student software to practice at home. I have Windows 7 64-bit, 6GB of Ram and Intel (R) Core i7 2.20GHz...(I checked all the software requirements before downloading the correct version of Revit 2012)
Do I have to uninstall the program and reinstall it again? Would the problem go away?
I have a drawing that is "Not Responding" when switching from a layout tab to model space by clicking the "Model" tab. I ran a recovery on the drawing and there are no errors. I can't get into model space except by clicking inside my viewport.
Is there a way to use the coil command to make a spiral out of a rectangle where the thickness of the rectangle starts at one value and ends at another? This would be a spiral torsion spring with decreasing thickness approaching the center.
