Creo 2 - merging curves

Anyone have suggestions for merging sketched curves in Creo 2 Parametric? Weve done this on a fairly regular basis in Wildfire 4, but now the instructions in Creo state "Click Restyle > Combine, select a curve, select another curve" When I choose Restyle, it tells me I don't have a license for that function. Is there another way to merge curves?

Found the answer on the ptcuser board - Composite Curves is what it's called. Go here for the how to - actually very simple.

Look at datum reference and its intent curve or intent chain type.

The only other place I know that merge curves exist is the import data doctor.

Re: Creo 2 - merging curves

It seems like PTC is hiding this feature although it works as described in Creo (using Ctrl C and Crtl V) but makes a copy feature.

I don't see any commands that create a composite curve.

However, the Reference datum Intent Curve option does the same thing.

Re: Creo 2 - merging curves

Hold down ALT (or geometry filter) and select one curve or edge. Then copy + paste and you'll enter the composite curve selection where you can add to the original curve or edge. If you select a feature instead of geometry it enters the feature copy.

It would be much more intuitive if there was composite curve button which would allow you to start selecting geometry without the hastle of ALT and CTRL C, CTRL V...etc.

Re: Creo 2 - merging curves

Right, I was just saying that it is likely that the intent curve option in Datum References probably replaces the Composite Curve feature. It does the same thing and does not require the awkward copy/paste. In a way, they did try to address your intuitive interface request. Of course, us old salts just know to look for the old dialogs.

A word from a PTC support member would be nice to clarify. (hint hint!)

Re: Creo 2 - merging curves

Sorry, my bad. It is interesting that in what little documentation that exists on these two features, they appear to have identical functionality. I'm also curious to know what differences exist.
