Creo Global Interference Analysis - Exclude Skeletons and Other Improvements

Creo Global Interference Analysis - Exclude Skeletons and Other Improvements

The Creo Global Interference Tool could use several improvements:

  • Ability to exclude skeleton models (relevant for skeletons models with solid geometry) - suggested default to exclude skeletons.
  • Ability to sort by columns - example: sort by interference volume from largest to smallest
  • Ability to use CTRL and SHIFT to select/highlight multiple lines in the table - currently it's 1 line at a time or 'show all'.
  • Ability to toggle viewing only the interfering volume - currently always have to also highlight Part 1 and Part 2.

The screenshot below is from Creo 4 M130.

Also improve the interference check on thread: if screw, thread and thread thread length match then exclude them from the interference dialogue check box.

 

Of course thread depth in the hole shall  be bigger then the screw depth of the bolt. A check on this value should be possible, for example minimal 2 mm more thread in the hole then the depth of the bolt .

It would also be helpful if objects could be excluded and included in the interference analysis using the Search Tool (ex search by part # or attribute value). This would help each company toggle excluding their fasteners because they tend to have interference (and create a lot of false positives).

Note: The assembly save a copy menu has the Search Tool built in, so it's already possible to embed the Search Tool within another tool.
