creating a "coating" part from an existing part.

Regular Member

creating a "coating" part from an existing part.

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?

Re: creating a "coating" part from an existing part.

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.
