AutoCad 3D :: Slice Grey Cylinder Object With Curved Network Surface

Oct 23, 2012


I'm trying to slice the grey cylinder object in the attached drawing with a curved network surface. Rather than slice around the path of the surface it seems to have just taken a planar slicing plane between the 2 vertical edges of the network surface.

AutoCad 3D :: Turn Surface Into Planar Surface

Jul 8, 2008

I know there is a procedure to turn a surface into a planar surface, but i don't really know if autocad can do that, or how to do it. By this procedure i mead transforming a cone into a surface, a cilinder into a surface for example, but in my case the main surface is not a basic surface (as show in the image) and the procedure is quite tricky.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Curved Surface - How To Increase Volume Of Surface At Certain Points Only

Apr 10, 2013

how I can add more volume to curved object surface? Say for example I have a plastic cup.You can think of this as cylinder object ,which was the shelled out using the shell tool and then had its base sealed.

Now at certain parts, I would like to increase the thickness and then blend it the rest of the surface(may be chamfer its edges) .

At certain parts on curved surface I would like to add an extra mm, I think if the surface was flat I would just sketch the shape, then extrude it by few mm and smooth the edges by doing a chamfer

But how can this be done on surface that is curved? Or multi curved for edges?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Ribs On Curved Surface / Trimming To Complex Surface

Feb 28, 2013

I'm designing a press for a skateboard similar to: Rib Press

I have the board modeled: (see attached)

Now what i want to do is generate those ribs as seen in the picture.

I tried creating a block that intersected with the board and tried to split the rib at the surface, but to no avail. I think the issue has something to do with the curve of the board in two directions, but i can't seem to get it right.

if you are having trouble visualizing what i'm asking about, look at this. I want to be able to figure out the exact shape of those center ribs to print and eventually cut out of wood.

AutoCad 3D :: Make Curved Surface A Flat Surface?

Oct 19, 2011

If you look in the attached PDF, I have an elliptical wall that also has changes in elevation. call it a compound radius if you will. What I have to do is to make a wall cap to go on top of the wall. I know, sounds fun.....I have the surface on the right of the PDF and i need to figure out how i can take that shape and have it lay flat so that i can cut this shape out on my CNC. i know I can use the FLATSHOT command, but this will not give me the true shape of the board.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating A TIN Of Planar Surface

May 27, 2012

I can't seem to create a planar surface that shows up in the tool space as a TIN.

Some background, I have a TIN of a pile of dirt that I created from a point cloud (it shows up in the toolspace under the surface section). I also have a plane that intersects that dirt pile which indicates ground level. I want to be able to calculate the volume of the dirt pile by creating a volume TIN with the ground plane and pile TIN, but the ground plane does not show up in the toolspace under the surface section so I can't use it to create a volume TIN. I created the plane with the planar button in the ribbon and manually lined it up with the pile.

How can I convert this plane that is clearly in my project but not in the list of surfaces in the toolspace into a TIN to use in a volume TIN?

I'm running Civil 3d 2013 and you'll probably have to explain things like I'm 5 because I'm not familiar with the interface yet.

AutoCad 3D :: Applying Surface / Turning Series Of Curves Into Solid Object

Mar 23, 2012

I am currently working on a project that involves some basic collision simulation of an LNG ship in Solidworks. However, before I can do that I need to turn the ship (which at the moment exists as a series of curves, see attachment!) into a solid object, which I can then export as an IGES file.

So far I have tried the PRESSPULL command and it hasn't worked at all, only produced a "not responding message".

AutoCAD Inventor :: Convert Surface To Solid Model / Turn Off Yellow Edges In Surface Model

Mar 4, 2008

We received a surface model from a vendor that I have patched up as best I can, it still has one hole that I can find that I haven't been able to fill. Ideally we would like to have a solid model, but I'm running out of time to get this done and the surface model we have would be good enough for our purposes IF I can get the yellow surface tangent lines to turn off or change their color to black.

I've attached a jpg of the surface model with the yellow lines and uploaded the model here: [URL].....

AutoCAD 2013 :: Converting Complex Solid Surface To Solid Model

Aug 12, 2013

I have finally created the shell of the complex surface that you see. This is only a section of the part because I cannot show the whole thing for proprietary reasons. I formed solid surfaces using the network command. The propblem is that it will not convert to a solid because the surface seams are not "water tight." When the network command created the solid surfaces, the surface seams do not exactly match the lines so there are gaps in all the seams. I have tried blending, patching, etc. and nothing works. how to convert this to a solid without losing the outlines and the shape?

AutoCad 3D :: Export Curved Surface From 3DS MAX

Jun 13, 2011

I have a curved surface and I don't know a right way to export it. If it like Editable Poly then I have a mesh in DWG. Then I set to Faceted and optimized then merge faces (to receive one face) and then convert to surface but after that I have a surface with multiple triangles. This is one way which I use, I tried many ways but I have the same results.

This is what I have after export from 3DS MAX (same as DWG, SAT, IGS)

This is what I receive from splines and loft in AUTOCAD.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Holes In Curved Surface

Sep 30, 2013

Basically I’m trying to create a circular cut in a flat pattern for a hole made in a rolled piece of sheet metal.

I have created a "case" (this is what we call it) to mount an axial fan, it will require holes for mounting the motor plate. When I create these holes in the rolled case assembly they appear to be fine, but when I flatten it they are turned into two sets of semi-circles or ellipses.

This is only a problem when we run the parts on our Laser; the laser will attempt to start the cutting at the end of each of these "semi-circles" causing a hotspot where the two semi circles meet. This causes the hole to be slightly smaller than intended in this area causing great difficulty inserting bolts, they normally require drilling.

 Our material thicknesses vary from about 3mm to 8mm.

I’ve included a crude example of what I’m trying to achieve. To really see what I mean, place the file into a Drawing file and zoom into the hole. I couldn't add the file, with only 3 features the file was 5mb in size.

By the way, I have a temporary solution, it's just a little complicated. (My solution: use square holes first in the un-flat, use the diagonal lines from each corner of the square in a sketch on the flat pattern to place a circular cut on its mid points.)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Extruding Through Curved Surface

I have tried, such as creating lines in a 3D sketch and projecting the geometry to surface, and creating a work plane, and both don't seem to work for me.... I'm trying to cut out a 5.8mmx14mm rectangle out of a cylinder. When I project the geometry to the cylinder's inner surface, I cannot trim the solid in order to extrude. I've attached the file.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Extrude Around A Curved Surface

Apr 27, 2012

I have a cylinder that has for lack of a better word, a zig zaged slot milled into the outside of it thru to the bore. I am unsure how to go about drawing this so I can get it to extrude correctly around the part.

From other cad software history, I could draw it on a straight plane and tell it wrap around the part of whatever diameter. But, since I have not attempted this in Inventor I don't know if this exists.

Just for reference, this is a twist lock device. Turn the cylinder, advance a key the is inside the zig zag advancing or retracting the part that is inside the bore attached to said key.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Flattening Part Of Curved Surface?

Dec 22, 2012

I am trying to design a new mold for some sailing rudders I am building. The files I have for the current molds are in the IGS format, which Inventor can open. The current rudders are convex going from the widest part of the foil down to the trailing edge. The goal is to create another model with this flattened. If I were doing this in logic it would be: Find max height, alter foil to be straight from max height to trailing edge. I have tried everything I can do to make this happen with no avail. what would be optimal is if I could get it set up so that I can easily control the amount of convexness to the aft section, but the primary goal is to just get it to be straight. The trailing edge is the straighter one.

The final goal is to export to g-code and send off to a cnc.

I have attached the files after I have imported them into autodesk, but below is a link to the original iges files.
