For exemple, I often need to cut one part with another part that intrude into one another. How can I do that? I know I can do that with "combine" in part mode.
Thanks a lot!
Check these topics in the hep file:
if u are using boss extrude then use merge option then u will get single body...
Thanks! but this will not work in assembly mode though
Thanks! It works. One more question: if I want clearance or tolerance, is there a simple way to add that in the cavity created?
you can use cavity option to do that but you have to edit part in assembly mode only then only you will get the option of cavity
Thanks! As above it works. One more question: Is there a simple way add clearance or tolerance on the cavity created?
You could use an "In Context" method;
Edit the part to be cut and create a zero offset surface(s) from the part being used as the cutting tool, then use that surface in a Cut With Surface operation.
This will work too but I think as mentioned above cavity is a shortcut.
you cant apply direct tolerance one way is to apply scale parameters and as it is in % so you can directly enter a value in units.
2 problem with this feature:
1: I can't get an absolute clearance value. for example if I just want 1 mm clearance, it can't do it.
2: If there are multiple holes created with cavity, Adding scale parameter will move the location of the hole because it scale around the center of the whole part not the center of each holes...
Use Kelvin's suggestion, but create surfaces with the offset that you want, such as your 1 mm clearance.
Thanks! I use it when cavity doesn't work. most of time we need to extend the surface before cut by the way.
