I am trying to figure out how to put not only xyz point data in a table, but also straight length, bend angle, and angle rotation. Does anyone know how to do this?
Not sure if I understood your need but think you have to key in manually or you can try using weldments.
Add the equation at the part level. Add those value to your part custom/config property and then link the table to those properties.
Hope it make sense.
Philip, did you ever find a solution to your problem? I found SPR 213359 and will vote for it, but am wondering if anyone else has found an easy way to do this.
Even if I could easily get a "flat pattern" of the pipe (straightened out with the start and finish of the bends) that would help. Currently what I do is draw up the tube run in a 3D Sketch, and then create another sketch for the "flat pattern" view with the same amount of tube sections, and then add equations to make the straightened sections the same as the arc length, so I can at least dimension the locations of the bends. It's a bit of a pain to do, and it still doesn't give me the angle of the bend or the rotation of the bend.
Try TubeWorks Add-In.
