I want to know if it is possible to calculate the water displacement volume of an assembly if it were immersed in water.
In other words, I want to create a file in which ALL hollow spaces inside structural members, valves, pipework etc are assumed to be solid so that when that assembly is dropped in water, the total volume of water being displaced will be equal to the iProperty value for volume. I know its possible to hole patch when creating a shrinkwrap, but this is only effective for 'circular' hollow spaces and does not fill obscure or rectangular shaped empty volumes.
I have a building like this and it has a lot of windows.
I know how to calculate an individual window area by using 'area' or 'ls' command. But this is just partial drawing and the whole building has hundreds of windows and it will take forever to calculate one by one and add them together to get the total area. Is there any way to get the whole area easily?
windows are just rectangles (and solid hatch inside the rectangle).
I have create my surfaces and now need a volume between to two surfaces. I created the surface by using the Surface/Create TIN Surface tool for both my OG and the surface after material has been imported. I have gone to the volume dashboard and it will not let me add existing surface. How do I calculate the volume?
Like many other users on these boards, I am unable to complete a full backup of a particular catalog on my machine using PSE 11 (or PSE 10 for that matter). I have four catalogs on this machine and three of the four complete the full backup process without any problems. That last, non-cooperating, catalog is much larger (7,389 photographs) than the others, but I do not think that this would pose a problem.
I have removed all videos, audios, projects, PDFs, and audio captions (in other words, all media types other than photographs) from the catalog. The only files remaining are photographs (that is, JPG files). I attempt to complete a full backup and, when calculating the total media size, the PSE 11 application freezes at five to six percent. I have attempted this in PSE 10 as well, but with the same results.
The only other item of note is this, when I search for the various media types, I see the message "no media to be displayed" in the middle of the organizer window. However, when I search for video, I do not see the message--the organizer window is blank (no text message as seen for the other media types).
Lastly, I have reconnected all missing files. (None.) Optimized the catalog. Fixed errors in the catalog anyway. (None.)
how I can complete a full backup of this catalog? A large cash reward awaits.
I have just created a Total Volume Table and everything is perfect in Model, but when y change to layout, the table is miising. I can barely see the title of the table zooming, but anything else. The tables are still there, but so tiny and with just the title, there is no data!
When using the rectangular tool how do i calculate equal distances between each Fin.The picture shows 11 Fins but they are not equal distances between each Fin which causes the Fins to be higher on the right side.Which formula / calculation do i need to use in Rectangle Tool to produce equal distances between each fin and therefore the 1st and 11th fin are in the same position on each side of the cylinder.Using Inventor 2012
I want to calculate aurface area of iparts automatically. there are about 100 ipatrs and i want to find surface area of each ipart. is there any way that i just click the desired surface and its area is written in some file so that i can just go to the next ipart click the desired surface and its area is written automatically on some file.
Is there some option in inventor to define macro for it coz i hav no knowledge of defining macros.
i have an already edited part list (because there are parts that come from different assemblies and other ones that don't have to appear in that part list) and i like to show the total weight of my drawing, that doesn't correspond with any assembly.
So, there is any possibility of summing up the values of a part list column.
I am well versed with the FEA system, however I do not see any way to get total pressure or load on a face. I know the info is there, the results let me probe points on the face, I just cannot find a way to get the total.
I have attached an image that illustrates the situation.
I will even dive into iLogic again if it is possible to achieve my goal there.
How I can get my parts list to show a total weight? Obviously, getting the weight of each part into the parts list is easy. However, I have not been able to find a way to automatically get a total weight for the entire assembly.
I'm laying out a drawing with all tabletops used in our project for a linolium- fitter to set a price on covering the about 12 tabletops in total.
I dont know if this is correct English or if it make sense at all, but what I was wondering about was: Could you retrieve the total m2 of all the tabletops in a drawing? Or do I have to go back to the aim and get them one by one?
I've read a few threads on this way back but cannot locate them. I have two surfaces and create a volume surface and it reported the volume as 493 cy. I then ran some sample lines at 25 foot interval and the total volume is reported as 964 cy.
I want to use it as my primary hydrologic and hydraulic modeler. It only makes sense. Well, I got the program to work and had things linked in and was able to route a storm through the network. But when I routed the storms, I had to model double the storage that i expected.
So I went back to the program I'm familiar with - Pondpack by Benltey - and designed the same system I routed in SSA in that program - and got the storage volume that I would expect for a site of this size - about 2 acres.
Is there possibly a setting that I'm missing that makes my outlet structures route slower or less than they should? Or is there some other reason that a system would give this kind of inflated need for storage?
I have an issue with using Bounded Volume or Adding a Boundary to Volume Surface things so bad... = incorrect volumes.. sometimes extremely incorrect.. I understand that the surface rectangle when a boundary is added but this could be horrible if not checked.
I use my parts list to generate a total length in inches of the same part that is used in several places in my assemblies. I then export it to excel, convert it to feet, etc. I've been doing this for some time now and it works great. The problem I am now having is I forgot how I got this magic to happen and I need to set another part to appear with it's total length in the list. From what I remember I set the QTY column in the parts list to show the length of the part and then I set the parts list to merge the same parts. For the life of me I can't remember how I did this. How this is done correctly?
All of the parts are created by the frame generator if this matters.

I have been trying to create a macro that would add a custom property to my sheet metal parts that would tell me the total number of piercings in the part (holes and punches). So far I have the punches to count correctly but I am having issues with the holes, as I am getting an error.

I am trying to get the correct total mass of a particular assy variant in a view label. I am trying to avoid using I-Assemblies due to the length of time it takes to set up and inevitable fudging of parts lists with phantom parts when things go awry. Anyway, to get around that clumbsiness, I use a combination of suppresed parts, assembly Level of detail (LOD) and View representations to switch parts on and off for various assembly variants of a theme (which works fine for me). see my "Mass of LOD's.jpg" attachment which should fully explain the parts list filtering and what I WISH to achieve. My objective is to get the correct MASS per Level of Assy and View Rep (both called the same) to be automated, correctly (as per LOD/VIEW REP), ideally, in the view label or in a leader note. I reckon I was able to do this way back in MDT? Any enhancement in Inventor 2013?
