Max dimensions for a 3D model

Max dimensions for a 3D model

Has anyone made a Creo toolkit application that can generate max dimensions for a given 3D model?

3 parameters must be generated in the 3D model…

  • MAX_LENGTH
  • MAX_WIDTH
  • MAX_HEIGTH
  • MAX_DIAMETER for tubular parts (option)

 

The application must automatically analyze the model so it fits into the smallest possible surrounding box disregarding how the coordinate system is placed (see attached screenshots).

While we are waiting for R&D to develop it have we decided to write our own application.

 

Thanks for all your feedback 🙂

I am not a toolkit user however isn't that a built in api in toolkit?

As I know build in function in toolkit use CSY for this.
You can get outline sizes, using Modelcheck.

ProSolidOutlineGet() is what you are looking for.

Be careful with this. Using ProSolidOutlineGet() can return a bigger outline than expected.

This function takes into consideration surfaces/curves (or others, I don't recall) that do not represent the real solid outline /dimensions.

Yes, It gives max boundary.
