Silhouette curve creation in Creo 2

Silhouette curve creation in Creo 2

Good morning,

I have a weird part that will have a crazy split line and
would like to create a silhouette curve of where I think the split line will
be on the surface but at the moment I do not have access to mold license. I
know in ProMold I can create it but is there a way to create it in a regular
flex engineer license?







This is the view I want the curve to fall on the part. I tried to create a
sketch and then project it to the surface but some areas of the part I
cannot use the project on some of the edges of the part.



Thanks.

1 copy all exterior surfs.

2 Use a surface trim operation via plane- trimming the quilt created in 1.

3 normal of the trimming plane should be coincident with your pull vector

4. i believe there is a fly-out or option to trim via silhouette

5. perform the trim.

6. create a composite datum curve on the trimmed edge of the quilt.

7. layer off the quilt....to only see the curve..

Try placing the udf on the part. (silh_curve.gph)

This should help.

Copy the geometry.
Paste the geometry.
Create a surface extrude where you want the parting line.
Create an intersect feature between the extruded surface and the copied geometry.

I have also used Pete’s method in the past, with success.

Thank you for all the suggestions and I got the curve I needed with using this method recommended by Pete. I did not get a chance to try Charlie’s method. I will try that one when I get this project done.



Thanks.
