This video shows drafting an imported part. I am unable to get draft instead I get draft. How to fix it?
Mold Tool SolidWorks.mp4 - YouTube
cavity is hidden in file you sent. just show it.
you need to change direction in draft.
In this video there is no talk about using Drafting tool. Without using this tool drafting is done.
im little bit confused, could you attach a file?
Sorry I usually attach my file this time I have forgotten. I have attached it.
In that video, there is no talk...at all.
No it doesn't. he creates a parting line and shutoff surfaces and then isolates one of the cavity/core surfaces which is automatically colored red or green when done properly. look at his feature tree, draft is never added. He is cleaning up an imported part similar to a mold maker receiving a customer file.
you need to add draft if you like to have it.
Problem is in video how it is possible without drafting tool.
there is no draft added here.
this two colors are just colors of Surface bodies.
You mean using this color has been added.
red and green colors are default for cavity and core.
In my case why color does not come spontaneously.
How come same surface shares and draft colors?
thats above my head
because it is a shutoff surface where the two mold halves will come together. a copy is needed to create both the core & cavity bodies.
I can partially understand what you say but not fully.
watch what happens with the molding folders once you step your way through a part split.
If shutoff surfaces are created with the built in tool, SW will automatically create 2 copies and put one in each folder (core/cavity) to be knit with the surrounding geometry and form a solid. they are mutually shared or "contact" surfaces between mold halves similar to the outer parting-line surface. They are identical so when you have your cavity & core surfaces shown, they overlap and give the appearance of a exhibiting both colors. it is just a graphical illusion of sorts. You can create an example by offsetting(copy) a solid surface to 0.00 and then changing its color.
