Add "solid_size" and "geom_size" as optional alternatives to "model_size"

Add "solid_size" and "geom_size" as optional alternatives to "model_size"

Add "solid_size" and "geom_size" to each model and make it possible to configure Creo to use these two new values as alternatives to "model_size" for determining drawing view sizes, text size of 3D annotations, and refit size.

"solid_size" would be the same as "model_size" except it would only consider solid geometry.

"geom_size" would be the same as "model_size" except it would only consider solid and surface geometry.

We design a lot of models that are relatively small in size compared to the map part we are copying from. Because of this we are constantly having to set drawing views to "partial view" and draw a curve around them to keep the view boundaries from being enormous compared to the actual solid geometry. Also, the text size for 3D annotations is huge and the zoom refit button makes the model zoom out so far I can barely see it. If I were able to configure Creo to determine the view size, text size, and zoom fit function, based on the size of the solid geometry, it would save me a lot of hassle.

Love this idea.

BTW - you should vote up your own idea. 😄

Would help avoiding small display in screen for models with large datum and constructions, skeletons (inhirtence...) and so on.

Love it!
