Volume measurement in Creo View

Volume measurement in Creo View

Hallo,

anyone knows how to measure the volume of a model in Creo View?? in the measurements summary I do not see the volume icon like in Creo Parametric, and it seems strange to me to not have such a fundamental tool...

thanks

Bye

Hello Tommaso,

i'm using CV3.0 M031.

There is a volume function in the Markup Folder.

What's your Version ?

Hallo Ralf,

thanks for your reply. I have this version:

PTC Creo View Lite 10.2.20.23 M020

and as you can see in the screenshot below there is no Volume function:

And I tried also to open measurement summary, seems there is no trace at all:

Re: Volume measurement in Creo View

Tommaso,

have you only Lite version of CV 3 or also some licensed type (MCAD, Standard)?

Maybe could be some limitation due to the Lite version?

Re: Volume measurement in Creo View

Hi Marco,

thanks for your reply. I've just asked our PTC distributor about the license, however Ralf says it's not a matter of Lite or not.

I will let you know what they tell me.

bye bye

Hi Tommaso,

I have tried using CV M031 Lite, same version as Ralf, and I can see Volume measure.

Maybe it's because you use CV M020 that you couldn't find it?

Marco

Re: Volume measurement in Creo View

Yes maybe, but it would be really strange to not find it because of the version.

Re: Volume measurement in Creo View

PTC support replied me with this case support "solution" that essentially says there is no way of measuring volume in Creo 3.0 Lite

https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/case_solution.jsp?n=CS159222&lang=en

and that if I want I can request this functionality with the "PRODUCT IDEAS"...this is madness

It's really incredible such a miss by PTC, really unconceivable...

so this software is practically useless to us for certain part such as foundry pieces, for which we need constant mass evaluations for cost extimations...non CAD-authors cannot have such numbers and I would therefore need to open Parametric- > find them automatically downloaded in Windchill workspace -> have to delete them from it

---> with the consewuent loss of time

at this point I will request a downgrade to 2.0 hoping it will work...
