I have a sheet metal sub-assembly that I need to create a .030' coating part from. It's so that I can create a drawing of the uncoated sub-assembly and then in the main assembly add the "coating" to be able to replicate the finished part. I tried to use the remove function, but that removes the portion that touches the plain sub-assembly but the opposite side is untouched. It's almost like I need to be able to select the plain sub-assembly and create an offset of .030'
Anyone have any tips or suggestions?
In the context of the assembly you can create a new part, copy/paste the desired surfaces that are visible in the assembly to the new part, and then, in the new part, use those surfaces to create a solid representation.
See http://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/usascii/#page/part_modeling%2Fpart_modeling%2Fpart_nine_su... for help in making the conversion.
I attempted to copy and paste and, unless I'm not doing it wrong, I couldn't select more than one surface at a time.
If that's the case, it's way to tedious.
https://community.ptc.com/t5/Part-Modeling/Offsetting-multiple-surfaces-at-once/td-p/43732 tells how to select multiple surfaces at once.
