Assemble the profile along a bend curve

Hi,

We are upgrading from Creo 2.0 to Creo 3.0 with that we are re-using the AFX (EFX) profiles we created for Creo 2.0.

In Creo 3.0 there is an option to 'Assemble the profile along a bend curve', but how do we have to modify the current profile templates to be able to use that feature?

Kind regards.

Hi Cor Huisman‌,

FYI: the option to assemble along bend curve is also available in Creo 2.

If you want to use custom beams also as bend beams then you will have to create bend versions of your custom beams as well.

For that matter go into the folder afx/parts/bend_profiles/ and copy an existing bend beam, modify it to your needs and put it in the library.

e.g. In the library you have your custom elements in folder

afx/parts/profiles/mybeams/beam1.prt

Then you will need also a bend version in the folder

afx/parts/bend_profiles/mybeams/beam1.prt

greetings Sam

Hi everyone,

 

also kinda important: parts must end in beam.prt - beam.prt.1 does not work (Placement Option for bend curve is not available).
