Changes to Freestyle between version 5 and Version 6

Question for all Freestyle gurus here and PTC folks.

In Creo 5, in Freestyle, there is a commad called Levels within the Freestyle workspace in the default installation. Levels (for this that don't know) allows you to step up and down the surface detail - note up and down. It is similar to subdivide but subdivide is a one way street - you increase subdivisions not decrease. Levels is fantastic for adding very localised detail if a part needs tweaking to accomodate a changed internal part for example to create a localised bulge or feature.

 

In Creo 6, Levels seems to have disappeared? Is this the case? If so why, as it was a genuinely useful feature! If it is still there then where is it?

Right it is still there - just moved from the ribbon to the freestyle tree and accessed only via a right click menu.

Hi,

please ask PTC Support and let us know.

Don't PTC Support monitor these forums? I mean they are not exactly getting filled with content (compared to say the Rhino or SolidWorks forums - which ARE monitored and responded via). At the very least I'd expect some VARs to be looking here and maybe chip in with feedback? Or am I being stupid Smiley Happy

Hi,

the forum is used to exchange information between users, only. PTC Support and management simply ignores it in most cases.

Well maybe I'll start an enhancement request to suggest that they monitor it Smiley LOL
