Imprinting should happen within single Part in ProMechModel

Imprinting should happen within single Part in ProMechModel

1. ProMechModel does imprinting correctly when there is an assembly with separate parts in it.

 

2. When there is single part (*.prt) then imprinting does not happen.

 

3. Please check attached single part and presentation describing the problem.

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.

 

We (Novus Nexus) is technical partner to PTC. We developed automation CAE product-CAENexus as an addin/Auxiliary application over Creo using Pro/toolkit API. Our product has been used by some of our common customers using Creo. This issue has been originally reported by John Deere.  I am working as software developer and support engineer for CAENexus.

2. What product & version are you currently running?

 

Creo 7.0


3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

CAENexus creates simulation model (imprinted model) as ProToolkit's ProMechModel. The ProMechModel created using Pro/Toolkit API fails to imprint the edges for a single part as shown in attached presentation. ProMechModel gives imprinted edges if we create two separate parts (.prt) and include them under assembly. However it is always not advisable to create two sperate parts from design point of view.

 

As these edges are not imprinted, they come as overlapping edges in non-manifold model built over ProMechModel. These overlapping edges creates problem for meshing as CAENexus meshes non-manifold model.

4. What is the use case for your organization?

If ProMechModel imprints the edges within single part then Deere CAD engineer need not to create two parts or they need not to do unnecessary CAD modification such as creating distance between these edges in native Creo model. It will save CAD engineer's time.


5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?

--No need to check CAD once mesh fails due to edges being not imprinted.

--It will save CAD engineers time making simulation process automatic and flawless.
