How do i turn off these dialogues I never use them and i can even see the part half the time
Without the part nobody can help you.
The part is just custom weldments, the screenshot i'm using the trimming tool that's where all the boxes are coming from.
hmm,.. split part van gogh?
No comprende senor
..sorry man.. was being facetious about random form.. like art... and it reminds me or is similar to a complex variable fillet edit cluster of overlapping variables.
I wish it was simpler or cleaner looking as well.. the gui is still sub standard (sorry SW Corp).. it needs more work... but we have so many other issues and needs in other areas.... arrggghhh.........
I don't believe there's any way to turn those off. I need them quite often, since the software can't read my mind to know which bodies I want to keep.
No way to turn off. you need to use a few trim features instead of one big trim. or trim the first one and then pattern the trimmed body. I agree they can get quite messy
Pattern feature is a headache, took me nearly a day to figure out you can't use polylines with it or weldments. Then pattern is really inconsistent, couldn't get it to follow arc's correctly to i did 16" short segments as a single weldment, did the vertical "studs" as a circular pattern because if done individually they didn't turn the few degrees to be parallel to the center point. Sure i could make a 100 individual studs then rotate them by x amount of degrees for each individual one but found it quicker the way i did it. The weldments didn't automatically trim consistently nor did the trim tool, seems it has something to do with the order the weldment was created and weather you select the part to be trimmed or the trimming surface. In that part above i had to select the cutting face first befor the part to be cut otherwise it would leave a sliver of the part on the inside of the arc.
I would agree there is no way to turn them off during trim process.
Without the part in front of me 1 body 1 trim and pattern may be an option, or if both sides of the trim are flat planes edit sketch so body does not need to be trimmed.
I use the second option a lot on square tubing frames, my main sketch is construction lines and then I create my second sketch leaving gaps for tube thickness so that way when it comes in as a weldment I leave as little trim functions as possible. Depending on the size(File) of your weldment the more trims the more re-build and lag time you get on it.
That would work on the Arc shaped walls but not the ovate one's, SW doesn't like polylines for patterns and every end cut is different so that would be a lot of sketches for a couple hundred blocks, weldment trimming tool is much faster.
Once i figure out a method that works in both situations i try to use it on both for ease and consistency if when something needs to be changed, less time trying to figure out how i did that particular thing opposed to the other thing. I know all my curved walls are made the same way.
You cannot disable those selection boxes.
You can change your work flow.
> Use cut with surface or any suitable cut feature (cut extrude, cut sweep, cut thicken) instead of the trim tool and you won't have to fight the dialog boxes
> Don't select so many bodies to be trimmed. Adds more features to the design but makes it more manageable.
> Or keep banging your head forever. Not like that's going to change anything. But hey, we all need to blow some steam every now and again.
