I applied a plug weld to a slot and was able to get the weld to work while using imperial units. As soon as I switched the model to metric units, the plug welds failed and I get an error stating, "Cannot intersect Base Plane with Side Surfaces." Any new plug weld that I try to create while in metric units also will fail with the same error. Has anyone else seen this issue or know of a fix?
That is interesting indeed.
We are not a metric shop, so I changed to metric units, and sure enough, it will fail. I even tried building an assembly FROM THE START as a metric assembly, and still no go, ON PLUG welds.
I get the same error message that you're getting, but I don't think that error is the whole story. Upon further investigation, I found in the info panel, this error message: " Value of :WELD_PROCESS is invalid."
At first, I did not have any process or material assigned to welds, so I thought that might be the issue. After assigning both a process and a rod, I'm still getting the same error. I even went into the process, since it appears to be the offending item, and fiddled around with the settings in there, and I couldn't find any settings that would make it work.
It appears to be a bug on the metric plug weld side to me...
There is some sort of a SERIOUS bug in the software. Can't create a metric plug weld period. Just tried in Creo 2, and it doesn't work there either...
