I have a problem I am using Autocad lite 2011 and need to draw if you can picture a column with a 15 mm deep fillet 42 mm wide which has a ramp and twist applied to it spiraling all the way up it. How do i go about this.
In Bill of material i have custom PartQty column and is beside QTY column. I need all informations from QTY column to PartQty column to copy. Possible with iLogic? I'm selecting now manualy copy and paste but it would be nice to have automatic.
I am trying to publish to the CC a guide rail. The vendor of the rail gives me the option of entering the desired length of the rail. After that he gives me the option to choose between the length that I entered and a shorter and longer standard length witch can be delivered faster.
I want to do the same thing with my published part, but I cannot make a key parameter to change depending on the entered custom parameter. I want the user to make the next steps when inserting from the CC: 1- select the size of the rail; 2-select the type of the rail; 3- enter the desired length of the rail; 4- choose between the desired length and the 2 recommended lengths (I need these 3 lengths to be shown)
I am trying to bild a ramp in 3d but i've been trying with no success, the ramp have a non common shape. pls look at the acad file to take a loot at the shape.
I need to have the top part at 5531mm and the bottom part at 0 and there is another part which is at 5035mm you can see that in the drrong and the ramp must 100mm thick or something similar. also i need to do it as a solid becouse i need to export it on a different software which only ecrpts solids.
How do you merge a ramp on to the main highway using corridors? Also how would you make that surface with two different alignments? I have my main road alignment and a ramp that comes on to it so the problem I'm having is making my 3d model with the road and surface combine.
Im doing a 3D design of kerb stone which includes a pedestrian ramp.
Please refer to my picture.
The kerb stone I have issues with is the one I have provided dimensions for. From the right edge, the height of the stone is 225mm, then is slopes down to 110mm. But what I could acchive is that the right 100mm I have shown is meant to be 75mm which the back stays at 110mm. Is there a way I can achieve this?
I'm attempting to use the Superelevation tool on an interchange. I have 4, 1-lane ramps that I need to apply superelevation to. The three issues I have (so far) are:
In the Calculate Superelvation Wizard...
1. In Roadway Type, I don't know what to choose, I'm leading toward Undivided Crowned (center Baseline ) because my assembly (as of right now) is set up as an undivided crowned roadway (with the crown on the west travel lane edge). Which Roadway Type I should choose (for a 1-lane Ramp with different shoulder widths?)
2. Moving on to the the Lanes category doesn't matters. I uncheck symmetric Roadway, hoping I can choose "0" for the number of lanes on the Left, or at least put the lane width down to "0" but can't do either. I uncheck the Symmetric Roadway and it still makes everything symmetric (it acts as though it is still checked?) I only want to show a single 15' lane. (I even tried to use undivided planar, and put both lanes at 7.5'each, but then I still have shoulder issues...)
3. Move to the Shoulder Control. Why doesn't it give me the option to do different shoulder widths? On ramps it is very common (at least in Wisconsin) to have an 8ft shoulder on the right and a 4ft shoulder on the left. How can I type in 2 different shoulder widths.
Essentially, I am attempting to create something similar to this: [URL] .....
But cannot get enough twisting action. I just need to know how to twist an object properly. For example, what I have done is created a two sketches of hexagons on offset planes, and lofted between the two sketches. If I rotate one hexagon sketch slightly, it will result in a twisting effect. However, if I want to get any significant amount of twisting, rotating the sketch does not work. I have tried with a goil, but that gets the entire object (with a sweep, in this case) to spiral.
I’ve attached an image of what I'm trying to create in 3D .I can make two straight prongs with no problem, but I can’t figure out how to get them to twist around each other as they are in the picture. It’s important that the two prongs are symmetrical and do not merge into one another where they twist.
I'm trying to do a 3d curve stair rail. I had the 3d spline path, I had the polyline rail profile, but after I sweep the profile, it end up being twisted at the end of the rail. Same problem happens when I did a sweep using a helix path, imagine a vertically placed rectangular profile at one end of the path then after using sweep command, the other end was somehow twisted on a certain degree. How can I avoid this twisting problem
See the before and after image. I wanted the rectangle profile to remain vertical throughout the whole sweep
i want to add to this image a ramp effect starting from the center to the bottom, the start colour must be like the center and gradually become black at the bottom... but must looks like all natural without horrible cut or different colour etc it's possible? i suppose yes, but how?
I have the following sheet metal application: A flat bar steel (strip) 40x1mm is bent and twisted around three cylinders. In our process, the strip is running in loop around these cylinders, like a conveyor-belt. At first, it is bent around the first cylinder (blue). Then, it is bent and twisted around the second cylinder (green). Between these cylinders, a flat part is modelled so that the strip will be bent upwards (twisted) around the next cylinder. The same is done between cylinder two and three. In praxis, when I bend the strip, no flat part will be present, because the strip is quite stiff, as it is spring steel. In my Inventor model, no stiffness of the strip is taken into consideration.
I am looking for a better way to model this strip, where stiffness of the material is taken into consideration.
I am trying to model a forged steel table base so I can create some tooling to reproduce it. See the attached photo of the base. I am able to sweep along my 3D projected sketch path but there is a twist at the center that I believe I need a guide rail to control. I have tried to draw a rail but it fails.
I suspect I am not drawing my guide rail correctly as to create the slight twist. I was considering drawing a shallow helix along the 3d sweep path but not sure that this is the best direction to head next. I have attached the .ipt with the sweep (without guide path being used).
I am totally new to Revit...basically teaching myself with this project. I need to create a ramp that goes from -1 level to ground, 12 feet up. I have created the walls for the path but I cannot, for the life, figure out a ramp. I have tried but I guess I don't understand how it works. I tried making a straight path with switch backs but I can't get that to work well either and that's not the design I want anyway. I copied the path of the ramp into a new file, which I have attached.
I'm trying to create a lower thirds that will include some motion, otherwise I might try Photoshop for this. But basically, I'm trying to create a gradient using ramp in AE so that the lower thrids I've created fades away on the sides. Similar to the image I've attached. I don't know how to make the layer that I put the ramp effect on affect the other layers.
