It seems that to make 2 different triming from a given Offset surface generates an error.
So, I would have to make 2 Offset surfaces to get 2 triming ? Am I right ?
Can you please post the file?
here is the file.
Surface Offset1 is a copy of the surface stroke.
As soon as i trim it, this surface becomes a piece of the initial Offset, and i have to define another offset, if I want a trim 2 !!!
Btw, the trim tool is a bit boring, it too : why this tool introduces the given surface as tool, which has to be deleted if I want to trim with something else than itself (which is the more general case) ???
A point that didn't appear to me (and generated others hairs pulling - now I know why) : the initial stroke surface (in the massif folder) disappears too, and looks like 2 trims of the 2 Offset surfaces !!!
Sorry Pet, but I cannot see any file attached. Try again.
Re-up the file, seems OK, now
What are you trying to achieve here Pet? You could insert a split line on on the main surface, then offset the various surfaces you're after.
I want to have a surface1, to load it for an effort simulation1 (the offset is fitted at 0.001mm, in my real worl), a surface2 for another simulation, and so on.
For me, the more natural way was to offset the stroke surface, to trim it, so why I did it.
But why, as soon as I trim an offset surface, the initial stroke surface suddenly has such odd behaviour, about show/hide modes ?
And why can't I trim the same surface into 2 different ways ?
The trim mode trims an existing object, staying existing after the trim, but the way things are done isn't following such path.
If you do not want the name of the surface bodies to be changed by the features which affect them, then rename the solid bodies manually. SolidWorks will respect that.
