It should be possible to generate corner radius, like the image bellow.
At the moment creo has the ability to generate a corner sphere radius. But it should be usefull to generate a simillar quality radius setback.
for the ones who works in metal stamping industries, will understand this need. This is very usefull, to prevent cracks in metal stamping parts. Solidworks, solidedge, CATIA, NX, Inventor has this feature. The solution provided by CREO isn't the best solution for this type of corners. Please take a look deeply in this enhancement.
I have this surface:
And I need to draw the following.
Still no way of how to do it.
Do you have any suggestion?
"You might be able to create the geometry in the forming tool (die etc.)."
Sorry, I can't find your picture, can you tell me where it is?
We complained about this issue also in other suggestions/ideas. Having a better transition to corner edges is a must in your modelling strategies. We don’t develop product, we only design/produce stamping tools, and we can’t impose the limited corner sphere transition that simply doesn’t work in most cases.
In this picture there’s a simple Catia automotive part (the cad system used to develop the majority of automotive body parts), the transitions are smooth and simple but we can’t replicate them with any radius transition solution in Creo.
PTC should address this issue with more care and more proactivity.
You are right, but you need to explain me also, how even smaller budget CAD tools, like solidworks, solidedge, inventor, are able to create this within radius command??? So if the lower and the high end CAD packages have the hability for this, why the Middle one don't. It simply don't make any sense!
Inventor example :
Inventor costs nearly half of CREO
Solidworks example :
The transition mode from CREO, don't produce simillar results, and most of the times it simply doesn't work. If there is edges with length smaller than the length needed for the sphere, it doesn't create. So it's useless!
