  • solid view???

    Is there a way to create a solid view in the graphics display? i would like to know if i can measure a cylinder and create a solid picture of it? I can import solid views, CAD files, but when writing a program, how to create solid views. i rarely import cad files. 99.9% programming on the table. Thanks .

    No formal training, just learn as you go, been at it about a year now.

    I don't believe you can, without cad.
    When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

      Nope, the only thing you can make 'solid' that you measure in Pcdmis is a surface, meaning if you do a patch scan, then construct a surface patch from the patch scan, you can make it show as a solid, other than that, it will be wire.

        I agrree with Hoederman. I actually use that method multiple times a week. You must measure the surface using the scan but also must be mulitple point and cannot be just a line. Patch scan will work for version 3.5.

        I always use the solid surface on top of the cad model so that the engineers can visually see the profile difference.
