2D Cross Section is Greyed Out

2D Cross Section is Greyed Out

Creo 4.0 080

 

Greetings all,

 

I have a section that I can place and change the angle, but "spacing" is greyed out. I looked up some stuff that people had issues with cross sections and it had something to do with view being set to no hidden. That does not solve my problem. This has got to be something dumb.

 

Help?

@wfalco

This is due to a change in functionality, to include PAT for hatching.

 

If you will use Creo 4.0 M060 or later, you will get spacing option when XCH is selected for hatching.

Hi,

upload simple model, if you can reproduce the problem on it.

Re: 2D Cross Section is Greyed Out

I pulled my hair out. Then I made a simple block. Made a simple cross hatch. Made a simple drawing. "spacing" is grayed out. I tried "scale" and that accomplishes the job. Am I nuts or was "spacing" what we used? Perhaps it's intent is for other reasons?

Re: 2D Cross Section is Greyed Out

Hi,

please calm down 🙂

  1. attach some screenshots showing your situation
  2. upload simple model with cross section defined

Nobody can help you, if you do not provide enough information.

I'm plenty calm.

 

The point I was making is that it's happening from scratch using 4.0 080. I had another person try it. If you'd like to try a simple block/dwg, that would be helpful. I am thinking it may be the new way its being done in 4.0?

@wfalco, Creo Parametric 4.0 M080 is not released yet.  It's not even on the calendar yet...  Can you please double check what version you're running?

Re: 2D Cross Section is Greyed Out

Cuz we rate?

 

Just kidding, my bad 4.0 020.

Re: 2D Cross Section is Greyed Out

Can you either attach your sample model or list the steps you are using to create the cross hatch?
