Merge Pieces Inquiry

Merge Pieces Inquiry

I was wondering if there is a feature in Creo Parametric 5 that will let a user to take a component (extruded in the center to remove excess cavities), shown in image 1, and merge them to replicate the one shown in image 2. I modified a longer rail system and would like to just remove the material so that I don't have to recreate all the features in the smaller piece.

Re: Merge Pieces Inquiry

I'm not sure what you are really looking for here. Are you attempting to merge two components? or is the green model supposed to be a longer version (I don't get the huge gap between the two ends)?

There are a number of ways to create the second (grey) part from the first. Are you new to parametric cad? 

It looks like you could create the rectangular cut with recess and rounds, group the feature and pattern to create any number of these cuts at variable pitches. If you do in one model these can be copied and pasted from one model to next so you only have to worry about matching references and then pattern in new model. There are other ways but hope this is a help.

There is the flexible modeling tab. You can "move" geometry. This is direct modeling modification.
First, window select the area you want to move then select move, there are some options for "dragger move" or dimensional or constraint type.
It might take some experimentation to get it right. I personally wouldn't use this method for production type work, but for quick and dirty concepts, it works great!

Re: Merge Pieces Inquiry

The green model is a longer version of the grey one. I extruded the portion out of the green model, as shown in the image, and was wondering if there was a way of connecting the two "floating" pieces left after the extrusion in the given part.

 

What I ended up doing was cutting the green piece to be equal to half of the grey one, mirrored the part, and created an assembly of both. I know it's not ideal, but it was a quick fix.
