I am attempting to create a screw of 1.93mm diameter and 3.00mm length. I have created a cylinder of these dimensions. However when I use the 'Thread' command, I get an error message stating that 'the diameter of the selected cylinder does not have a corresponding entry in...', and the threads are not created. How can I fix this?
With my new found knowledge of realizing that working with and editing surfaces in SE is generally still more flexible within Traditional Templates than Synchronous Templates, how can I therefore move, import or open that same Traditional part file in a Synchronous Template in order to continue with the part design using Synchronous Technology?
I created a body using the LOFT command to make half volume and then I mirrored it to complete the body. I don't know why the part file is huge, 50Mb. Then I hollowed the part with the thin wall command and the file growed to 180Mb. Is this right? A part made out of surfaces should be that big? I can barlly do anything because my computer is so slow, when I work in it.
we have just loaded ST2 and are using it in traditional mode and were plesently surprised to see the 'modify' section on the home ribbon bar containing new tools to move, rotate & delete faces, and resize holes & rounds. We can't seem to find any information on the new features in the 'whats new' publications. Could you point us in the right direction please?
I have a swept surface which I used a single sweep path but multiple cross-sections to create. I want to go back and add in one more cross-section and re-generate the surface. Normally, I am able to do this by right-clicking on the surface feature in the pathfinder and choosing the "edit definition" command from the context menu. I can then edit the surface as needed. Foir some reason in this model I do not seem to have these options on the context menu. Has the Edit Definition command been moved somewhere else in this new version of Solid Edge ST2?
Could you explain in more detail how Property Tables work. I am talking about the commands like Attach, Tables, Query & Show which are in the part environment, under the Tools ribbon and the Property group. I am trying to use custom properties to indicate face materials in wood panels.
Unfortunately the only information that Siemens can provide me is scarce and confused.
I would like to know if you can add named views on a global basis to the ‘Named Views’ dropdown in the part screen. I know I can draw a part and then add named views but can I format the new part screen it so that the named views are there as soon as you open a new part screen i.e. add left, bottom, and back to the existing dropdown?
