Helical sweep cut, can't dimension


I can't dimension a helical swept cut with anything circular in it.

For example:

Extrude circel to round bar
Sketch circle on edge (thread)
Construct helix
Cut-sweep with helix and sketch

Make drawing
Insert view
Insert section view, display only surface etc.

I see the thread to dimension and get: "the selected entity could not be
converted into line or circular arc"

I tried to make a silhouette edge in the part; Select the cut-sweep feature,
split line, silhouette etc.


I use SW2003 SP3.1

You can try in 'insert model dimensions' then if they are in the wrong view 
just shift-drag them into your section view.

Or show the original sketch involved in the sweep,  then dimension the 
sketch entity.

Want WAV editor allows cutting without changing remaining audio

cut/paste matrix to excel?
I'm building an app with the matlab compiler. at one point i'd like to display a table of numbers for the user to observe and then, if desired, cut and paste them into excel. how might i do this? the display doesn't need to be pretty--the same format in which a matrix is displayed in the matlab interpreter window is fine. but i know that when i try to cut/paste a matrix from the interpreter window excel always puts each row into a single cell.

CUT #2 507713
Hi, I have a file with records that looks like this: 99999,"~Index - Standard & Poor's 500","IX","","","","","",,"For Index Reco" What I want to is extract the records if the first 5 characters start with 9. I was getting things like: cat file.txt | awk -F, '{ if ($1 == 99999) print $0 }' OR cat file.txt | cut -c 1-5 | grep "99999" That works, but the 99999 needs to be a pattern like 9% for the first 5 characters.....

Helical curve swept on a helical curve
I need to create a helical curve that is normal to an existing helical curve. A spiral on a spiral so to speak. I have found several curve equations that are close, but what usually happens is that the secondary curve is not swept normal to the primary curve. The primary curve is created by cylindrical equation like this: r = 0.75 theta = 360 * t * 4.5 z = 0 - 19.05 * t It is the equation that sweeps the secondary curve that eludes me. Surely, someone must have done this before. Any ideas? Bumlinger wrote: > I need to create a helical curve that is normal to an existing he...

Plane sweep and triangles
Hello, I have the following problem. Suppose we have triangles in a plane. None of the triangles intersects another, that is no side of a triangle intersects a side of another triangle. A triangle can include at most one triangle. I need to say (with the best running time possible) if there is a triangle that is included in another triangle. How to do it best? Of course to test if a triangle is included in another triangle is simple and takes O(1) I guess I should use plane sweep, but I still don't know how to order the triangles... and it doesn't work for me. Thanx for your help....

How can I make a frequency sweep that plateaus for different durations?
I want to be able to make several signals that rise in frequency for different durations and then plateau in frequency for a duration. I have tried several methods to do this but always have problems with the continuity of the signal. The below example uses chirp.m in the signal processing toolbox. Even if I try to set the initial phase of the plateau portion of the signal to the ending phase of the rising frequency portion I still get a discontinuity for some rising durations. Any suggestions gratefully received. I have used small durations in the below example as the discontinuity is more e...

Re: Re-defining Log over it's branch cut #2
Thanks guys. I checked it on my machine (5.2) as well and seems Carl's technique works with 6.0. Little involved though. Maybe for now, it's not too bad to code it directly. For example, when I integrate the Zeta integral on the lower leg of the contour, I just enter: NIntegrate[Exp[(s - 1)(Log[r] - Pi I)]/(Exp[r] - 1), {r, 1, Infinity}] same on the upper leg with z=r Exp[Pi I] and on the route around the branch point, I can use the technique with ContourNIntegrate that was described in another post. > Hello.Carl Woll's solution is very smart. > > Limit...

Helical patch object
I would like to create a patch object which is formed like a straked cylinder. The "Cylinder" function from the file-exchange helped to create the core cylider. Now I need the strakes, helical surfaces that run around the outside. It is quite easy to create two helices using the plot3 function with two different radii, but how can I convert these into a surface? To imagine what I have in mind, run this code: figure [x y z]=pol2cart((0:(2*pi/3)/10:2/3*pi)+1/2*pi,0.5,0:max(Z)/10:max(Z)); plot3(x,y,z,'k') hold on [x y z]=pol2cart((0:(2*pi/3)/10:2/3*pi)+7/6*pi,0.5,0:max(Z)/10:m...

temperature sweep in Spectre
Hi Running MMSIM61 I have a diode model with 'rs' defined by a cubic temperature function (i.e. const+lin*temp+quad*temp^2 *cub*temp^3) When I sweep the temperature in a simulation it works O.K. When I try to run dc sweep simulation at a selected temperature I get an error saying that 'rs' is less than or equal to zero. It turns out that with the coefficients I'm using in my function the value of rs does indeed go negative above a certain temperature. Why does spectre not bother about this when the temperature is sweep but the at spot temperatures spectre won't run...

Mass by default in Weldment properties + Cut List ?
We need a "Mass" or "Weight" column in all cut tables displayed in drawings, which requires each weldment in the part to have a "MASS" custom property which can be automatically updated through a definitition like "SW-Mass@@@Article-liste-des-pi=E8ces-soud=E9es1@weldment_box2.SLDPRT". Fine. But how can we avoid to manually insert that property in each item in the part's weldment list ? How to do it automatically, or have it by default ? Thanks ! ...

How to share common files in PVCS Dimensions
Hi: I'm running PVCS Dimensions 7.1. I'm trying to setup a shared area in PVCS Dimensions that other applications will use. I have separate worksets and design parts for each application and for the shared area. I want one copy of shared files, but I also want the file to show up in my applications worksets. I also want to include the shared files in baselines. Any ideas? Sounds like local workset replication would work in this instance. Are you sure you need design parts for each application? They might be overkill if all application developers work on all of the ap...

image dimensions disappearing in 10.7
Happy New Year! When I open folders containing images in 10.7, there is no reliability for image dimensions appearing under each filename on my MacBook Pro (early 2011). Strangely, some files do display their image dimensions but perhaps 75 percent or more do not. To get them to appear, I have to open the image in Preview, close it and click on the window to see the image dimension in blue. Doing this for every image is, of course, a bit much. Has anyone else run into this? And, more importantly, does anyone know a solution to fix this? Thanks! On 2012-01-01 04:55:03 +0000, paris2ven...

Cutting down on routing nodes
Wondering if going 0 on routing nodes will impact a flat/nonrouted decnet in any other way than that I cant see nonlinked nonrouting IV decnodes status?
