Back in the old days we used to get this error message occasionally:



it was usually followed by this:

I REALLY LOVE when CREO or WF shows you a round that you are about to put into your model. It highlights the round feature and shows you just how it will look once you hit the green check button. Great! So you press the green check button and CREO takes the round feature away and say, “Cannot create round feature”. It’s PTC’s way of saying, “Just messin’ with you, sorry”.

I love that one.

Happy Friday.

I remember learning Unigraphics at uni: after completing a command, you had to select Cancel otherwise you just went round the loop for the same command again... you could do the same thing several times before realising!

This reminds me of something I started and never finished.

RE: Gotta love it...

Hi Bob,


Can you send me the data where you are seeing this? I'd like to run it by development.


Generally, if an attached preview is shown for a feature, the feature should be able to be created properly. However, in order to generate the attached preview as quickly as possible, we do take some shortcuts in the generation code. This can occasionally result in a successful attached preview, but the feature fails when it is fully generated.


That said, the more we learn about these kinds of cases the better we can handle them, so I’d appreciate a chance to see the data.


Thanks!


Don Breda

Don,



This surely happens to me on occasion. Bob is not alone... I will try to remember to send you an example the next time I see it.

Bob, et. al.:
Often when I see such behavior WF/Creo CAN create the round, just not as a solid. In these cases you can still create the round as a surface and then patch the offending bad area (usually where the round terminates) with a little surfacing magic. Then you can solidify the surface round. This is one advantage with PTC products that when a round fails, there is another way out.
Regards,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Yes, I have sometimes switched to surface rounds when the solid round feature fails. The round surface feature may be put in the model, but more often than not, I am not able to either patch or thicken the quilt. I usually end up making smaller round sets, or break the rounds into several round features and then try using transitions. Sometimes other “games” need to be played like making most of the rounds for example R.062” but some of the rounds need to be R.061” or perhaps R.070” or R.050”. It just slows you down. Sometimes fighting the software to do what you want.
