I am trying to penetrate 2 pipes symmetrically perpendicular on a larger one but the penetrate command is not enabled to be used at that intersection point. is there any solution for that ?
Easiest way to solve this:
1. u need to make some displacement between branches, fe. 0,001mm
2. set penetration for first point
3. set penetration to second point
They behave like concentric pipes
Does it work on that point for only one of them ?
Just guessing, did not try it.
Maybe you should move one of them away whilst you do the first one and put it on the correct spot to do the second one after you have finished with the first one.
Or shorten the pipe on one of them so both of them do not intersect while you are executing the penetrate command (It might even not show if they both intersect the same spot) for the one that intersect the line on the bigger pipe,
Hope this makes any sense.
Thanks Ingvar for replying. it works for only one point. I think I have to go for the next suggested solution but unfortunately I have to loose the alignement between pipes
thanks Sebastian for your help and for your time. I guess this is the only way to bypass that problem !
Short answer is it is not possible to do a penetrate on the exact same point with more then one line.
The only solution is doing as Sebastian Waniczek described. I do the exact same thing with the only exception being that I use a distance of 0.02mm.
