I need help for creating the Silhouette curve in part mode in Creo 3.0.
I remember there was an option for creating silhouette curve in part mode in the Pro-Engineer Wildfire 3.0
But I did not find this option in creo 3.0 under the curve command.
The only way I know if is to create a surface copy of the surfaces you want the curve on and then do a silhouette trim on those surfaces.
Select the quilt, select the trim tool, look for the silhouette button on the trim tool dashboard, select a plane to define the direction. The edges of the trim can be used for your silhouette curve.
To create the silhouette curve, the following steps are required:
Applications > Engineering > Mold/Cast
Mold & Cast > Parting Surface Design > Silhouette Curve
In the Silhouette Curve window define
Surfaces Refs: Select the desired surfaces
Direction: e.g. Coordinate system in Z direction
Most users do not have the Mold Design module that would be required for your solution.
Don't be sad for that. I have Mold design module and I can tell that Silhouette curve fails many times.
Silhouette trim seems to work better, don't know why.
