Pro/Toolkit: please restore functionality of pro_compute_volume function

Pro/Toolkit: please restore functionality of pro_compute_volume function

Per call C10952765 : Cannot find volume of the solid volume due to removal pro_compute_volume() function...

PTC tech support reply:

 

First of all, I apologize for the time taken.

The only way I see which may help us in this case is, build the application after including the prodevelop includes and libraries from Creo Elements/Pro 5.0. Please ignore if you are already aware of this.

I suggest you to submit an Product Idea requesting equivalent function(mentioning the use case) in order to evaluate this functionality for future releases by PTC product management.

In which release did PTC remove this function?

Also, isn't there an equivalent function in the Object Toolkit?

Hello all,

Pro/Develop was retired sometime in Creo, pro_compute_volume is in prodevelop library.

The function was replaced with ProFitInterferencevolumeCompute. Unfortunatelly the replacement function works with interference volumes only while pro_compute_volume would work with any closed quilt. There is no function ( to my knowledge) in Pro/Toolkit or Object Toolkit to calculate the volume of a closed quilt.

Thanks.

Feliks.

Would ProQuiltVolumeEval work for you Feliks?

Hi all,

Patrick, the function ProQuiltVolumeEval was added to Pro/Toolkit sometime ago. It had solved the API gap.

Feliks.
