Technique that would measure surface thickness, output a file, and color map the surface

Technique that would measure surface thickness, output a file, and color map the surface

Mike Smith, Senior Technical Support Engineer recently supported me on case 11347738 that accomplished this task but would like to refine the method and have the color mapping work together with outputting a file.

The task was to  measure the thickness across a large surface and export a file with the thickness and x,y,z location at every point, the goal was to output up to or better than 30,000 thicknesses and their location. Mike was able to resolve this issue but had to run User Define Analysis separate for the color mapping to work. My suggestion is to have a command/technique in CREO parametric that would measure the thickness across a surface, output a file showing the thickness and x,y,z location and also have the color mapping show visually how the thickness changes across the surface.

Regards,

Mike Rubino
