Anyone have any idea how to change the default knit tolerance
I wish I could turn it off completely, but I would be happy if I could set it higher
It's got to buried some where in the reg files
I think what James means is that when he un-checks "Gap Control" he wants it to stay un-checked until he decides otherwise. Or if that's not possible then be able to alter the "Gap Control" values to his needs & stay like that. As far as I can tell both the check box & the values revert to the same state on each use i.e. Checked & values of 0.0025mm & 0.1mm.
If you want to turn it off completely - then use uncheck "Gap Tolerance." If you want use to change the "default" gap tolerance, then you use "Gap Tolerance" and move both sliders to set the range you want.
Mark, you have totally missed the point,
What you mentioned is what I already do 100 times a week
That is the issues, If I could set the default tolerance larger then I would need to always adjust the setting every single time I want to knit a surface together.
Overall, it is very common to knit urfaces froma gap of .100 or smaller
Where did the .025 come from?
That's only a .001" gap
The tool can knit gaps much larger then this
Also, whit the gap tolerance checked, it automaticaly slows down the command while SWX investigates all edges of the surface you are knitting to report back on the gaps
It 99% of the cases, I really don't care what the gap is, I just want the knit feature to sew the 2 surfaces together
This option box requires additional work that is not needed
Sorry for taking so long to circle back on this.
I understand now. Can you please submit an enhancement request form for this and I'll talk it up from my end. Do you want it to remember the setting per session, between session or per a part template?
I have only been requesting this for what maybe (3) years!
Ever since they added the "gap control tool"
I missed the days where knit was just knit, it either did it or didn't
I think I must have unchecked the knit tolerance atleast 50 times today so far!
I always un check knit gap control. All of the surfaces that I knit are either mutual trims or perfect fits with a common guide or mirrored surfaces. They should be perfect. Solidworks should get over trimmed surfaces and make all surfaces untrimmed surfaces with nurbs edges.
I checked with some of my colleagues and it looks like there solution for this coming in 2014. So make sure you sign up for beta and try this out. Apparently this is something that Don Van Zile pickup up on as a result of his "Pet Peeves" post. Good catch Don!
That's good to hear, i have been popsting ER's ever since SWX made the change to add this functionalty, 2008?
Posting an ER dosn't get you very far, unless you bitch up a storm on here, nothing seems to get fixed
I could give you multiple examples
No actually - we (Product definition) looks at EVERY ER and processes them accordingly. I suspect that this enhancement coming was partly due to ER's being submitted. So thanks for posting the ER/s.
I have been posting ER's on this since 2007
Which one was the one that got picked?
