Re: Running v16 with MM2005

Yes, the backsaving would be an issue. I know there are unofficial ways to backsave further than one release, though.

The last I checked, the current release of MM doesn't run under Solaris and...

Running v16 with MM2005

Has anyone out there run OSD16 with an older version of MM? I'm thinking of trying out v16, but I won't be able to upgrade the MM database (currently running v13.20a).

Assuming MM doesn't mind, I...

Re: Sharing already existing components?

I played with that tool briefly yesterday and from what I can tell, it is meant for replacing existing shares with a new source file, not for "creating" shares where there were none originally. It...

Re: Turn something in the middle

I assume you do not have a suitable point/axis to choose? Are you trying to rotate about the centroid or something like that? Can you post a picture?

Re: Rotating only one element through one axis?

Do you have a picture you can post? It'd make it easier to visualize what exactly you are trying to do.

Re: 2d movements

If you are trying to move the line from wherever it is now, to exactly 10 mm away from the center of the circle, then I'm not sure how to do that without either doing two moves (first one to the...

Re: Move a cylindrical face relative to a plane face

"Where you click" is where you are setting the CoPilot axes. Instead of randomly clicking, choose what you want as a relative face (or vertex or edge). Depending on what you choose, you have...

Re: Move the whole object?

Also, you can change the move options available with CoPilot depending on what you pre-select. Choosing a vertex keeps motion along normal axes. Picking an edge gives motion along that edge or...

Re: 2d movements

Are you talking about 2D on a workplane? If so, you can use the Modify 2D>Transform>Move command. I'm still on OSD 13, so I don't know if the CoPilot was added to this command in the current release...

Re: Cross Section disappears : how to avoid it?

Re: Find origin

There's a nifty Goodie that will automatically place either...

Re: Is there a way to put annotation for Conter bore?

Re: Proposal to Merge CoCreate User Forum with PTC/USER Portal Site

Re: Is there a way to put annotation for Conter bore?

If you use the Machining Module and create the counterbores as Machined features, you can port the 3D Annotation to 2D and it will automatically have linked labels that will update properly.

Re: How to create simple web-pieces, strengthening/lightening ribs.

There is a Probe tool for selecting faces inside a solid. It should be next to your Select Toggle arrow (bottom of screen).

Re: Ref line from one view to another

No, it should still work. Create Leader should only need either text or any other Owner. I've set it to a View or even the active Sheet, for example.

Re: Converting from .STL to CAD formats

Ah, I suspected that was the case. I remember the STL format was supposed to be a big blob of triangles, in essence. I've tried SW 2007 for importing and while it will bring in the file, I can't do a...

Converting from .STL to CAD formats

A friend needs to convert .STL (stereo-lithography) files into usable CAD formats. IGES, ACIS (SAT), or STEP would all work. She's tried using Pro/E, SDRC, UG, OSD, and SolidWorks. Most can import,...

Re: Can subassembly be modeled separately from Main Assembly?

++ Very much agree on this point. The first time we used a PDM I didn't see what the fuss was (this was WM 5.1?). But once our parts were in the system, I could see just how powerful it is having a...

Re: repeat function along profil

I don't know of a way to do so in one step, but you could use linear copy (or share) along the straight portions, then use radial copy (or share) along the curves. Sure, you would have to do this in...

Re: How Do You Feel About PTC Acquiring CoCreate?

I'm not sure how to vote. Strategically, it's a good move for PTC. I suspect it also helps CoCreate gain name recognition. While I have never been a customer of PTC, I have been in customer meetings...

Re: OneSpace vs. SolidWorks

One point I'd add to Marten's comment about file sizes being smaller is this carries over into needing less horsepower to model the same things in OSD over SW. With bigger file sizes, you need more...

Re: Marrying Files Together

First, you need to load the frame.mi file as the frame for a new drawing. You can register it in your am_customize file with the docu-register-frame command. Example:
