How to create Silhouette curve in creo3.0 in part mode

Hi,

 

I need help for creating the Silhouette curve in part mode in Creo 3.0.

I remember there was an option for creating silhouette curve in part mode in the Pro-Engineer Wildfire 3.0

But I did not find this option in creo 3.0 under the curve command.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks

The only way I know if is to create a surface copy of the surfaces you want the curve on and then do a silhouette trim on those surfaces.

Select the quilt, select the trim tool, look for the silhouette button on the trim tool dashboard, select a plane to define the direction.  The edges of the trim can be used for your silhouette curve.

Hi Chandra,

To create the silhouette curve, the following steps are required:

Step 1:

Applications > Engineering > Mold/Cast

Mold & Cast > Parting Surface Design  > Silhouette Curve

Step 2

In the Silhouette Curve window define

     Surfaces Refs: Select the desired surfaces

     Direction: e.g. Coordinate system in Z direction

Thanks,

Amit

Most users do not have the Mold Design module that would be required for your solution.

Don't be sad for that. I have Mold design module and I can tell that Silhouette curve fails many times.

Silhouette trim seems to work better, don't know why.
