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.
Using a synchronous ST2 part. After randomly placing multiple holes how do you align the holes to each other. Is it necessary to dimension each hole ?
I have an existing traditional part model and would like to make some modifications to it using Synchronous Technology. How can I convert it to a Synchronous part?
I have reference planes in my model but I am unable to see them in the Feature Pathfinder. When the same part is opened on another users machine we are able to see the planes OK. What do we need to do in order to see the planes on this machine?
Since updating to v19 when adding a thread I get an error message "The selected thread does not have a thread family identifier & it is required for automatic thread updating. Add an appropriate thread family identifier to the holes.txt or pipethreads.txt files". How can I stop the error?
How can you generate a parallel plane in a synchronous part model? The parallel option does not seem to exist.
I have to place the same part in different lengths in ST2 which is missing the Family of Parts function in the synchronous environment. What is the best way to do this?
I have a 3d model (imported from a .stp file).
I need to create a female mould from the male part. The part consists of complex curves. (It is the foam part of a car seat). Can you give me any pointers on how to start this?
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 would like to create a rectangular pattern of a feature using the staggered and fill options. I have been able to create the pattern but not able to define the spacing correctly. The height of the pattern will not change.
Have just upgraded to the new Synchronous Technology version and cannot find how to save a part model as an IGES file. The only option under Save As seems to be Save As Image
Is it possible to add custom face colours to a part model?
I can see some different glyphs appearing in the feature pathfinder what do they mean? I have seen a blue circular arrow, a grey arrow and a red circle with line through.
Is it possible to use the 'Futura' font as a text profile in Solid Edge?
In a traditional part, what is the quickest way of dropping all the associative inter part links?
I have a profile in a part model and would like to make two circles equal or symmetric about the centre reference plane on the part. This is so that the dimensions to control the profile only need to be applied to one of the circles.
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?
I would like to apply a JPG image as a logo onto a single face of a part model. How is this done?
Please could you help, we have been sent 2 AutoCAD R14 files from a Chinese customer and we cannot open the files fully in Solid Edge. We have opened them in AutoCAD and they are 3d wire frames with surfaces.
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 have generated a part model that has a series of circular and rectangular pattern features and now want to edit the number of occurrences in each pattern.
I am trying to paint individual faces on a part different colours. When I use the Part Painter command I can only change the colour of the whole part. When the option is set to change individual faces nothing happens
I have a Solid Edge part that contains a rectangular pattern. How do you edit the spacing and occurrences in the pattern?
I am trying to edit the plane used for a mirror feature within a part model. The model was generated by another user and the mirror feature uses a parallel plane. How can I establish where the plane was positioned?
I have had a symbol appear in a part model that has three axes and CM and CV labels next to it. I have not seen this before. What is it and how can I turn it off?
Is it possible to measure the total length of a series of 2d entities that make up a sketch in a part model?
I am trying to generate a basic sketch in a model. Every time I draw a line I get a driving dimension appear. How can I turn this off?
How do you wrap a sketch containing a text profile onto a cylindrical surface?
I would like to add a text profile in a sketch and then be able to rotate the text to another orientation. How can this be done?
I have a curved part and would like to place a cut out into the curved surface that has a uniform depth of 2mm.
I am trying to create a sketch by including the edges of a cylinder. I can select the edges that form the ends of the cylinder but cannot select the horizon or soft edges of the cylinder.
How do you add extra control point to a spline curve that has been generated in a sketch?
I have a part that contains a curved face and would like to generate a protrusion on the curved face that is a constant thickness and offset from the original face.
I am creating a cut out on a face which has some angles sides. When the face is chosen for the cut out the plane axis is not in line with the default planes in the model. Instead it is in line with one of the edges. How can the plane axis be aligned with the global planes?
Is it possible to scale a part model?
I have created a part which has been thin walled. Now I would like to change the thickness of the thin wall. How is this done?
I have created a face style in a part and would like to make it available in other files as well as the normal Solid Edge templates.
Is it possible to adjust the location of a part copy once it has been inserted in another part model?
I would like to stop the view switching to the plane view when generating a sketch or profile. How is this done?
For some reason all dimensions that I place in the profile environment are 'Driven' dimensions and do not drive geometry. When the dimension is selected and the value changed it becomes underlined and the geometry does not change. How can I set it so dimensions drive geometry?
How do you place a PMI callout that is aligned normal to the current screen view?
I am trying to create a cavity in a solid block from an existing component. How can this be done?
Is it possible to transfer saved hole settings in a part from one version of Solid Edge to another. For example when upgrading from V19 to V20?
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?
Is it possible to add and populate custom attributes to existing Solid Edge documents that do not already have the desired attributes?
How can you project a JPG logo onto the face of a part?
I am trying to open a DWG file that contains 3D data but I am only able to use a 2d draft template.
I have been given a list of materials and their properties in excel format, is there any way of populating the materials file in solid edge other that inputting each material one by one?
I am trying to use an imported 2D DWG file to construct a 3D model. I have managed to copy the geometry into a profile but I now get an error saying that the profile is not connected. What is wrong?
In Solid Edge ST I am trying to scale some part profile geometry but cannot find the scale command. Where has it been moved to?
