Framework Inch Plate Less than 5"

SOLVED
Level 6

Framework Inch Plate Less than 5"

I've just started using Framework in Creo 2.0. So far, so good, but no matter what I do, I cannot get Framework to make a plate less than 5" wide. It will do any thickness, but no narrower than 5". I can change the part after it is created.

Has anyone seen this and do you know a fix?

Hi Steven Wood‌,

maybe you have a corrupt tab-file. Please try to replace the attached tab file with the one you have.

Store the file in <AFX_DIR>\parts\profiles\steel_beams_inch

Hi Steven Wood‌,

I tested with AFX 4.0 and there seems to be no issue. Can you send screenshots of what you are trying to do?

Samuel,

Thank you for testing on AFX 4.0, but since that is not the version I am using, that is not a solution to my problem. I don't know if it was you or someone else that marked your answer as correct.

Attached are screen shots of me sizing my plate, and then the plate it creates. The PROFILE_CUT_QUILT in the part is suppressed every time. I don't know if this is supposed to be or not. Resuming that feature does not change anything.

Please unmark your answer (if you can) as being the correct answer, so hopefully you and others will continue to chime in.

Samuel,

That was the problem. No idea how that happened (as we hadn't use Framework till last week), but it is fixed now.

Thank you for taking the time to help!

Samuel,

I had a similar issue and the file you sent fixed it. Do you also have the updated plate_tab.gif file? The one I have shows B and H for dimensions instead of W and H.

Hi Scott Murphy‌,

attached the fixed image. It was incorrect for a long time - thanks for reporting.
