  • One Click CAD Features

    One of the nice features in 3.7 is the ability to select circles and slots with one click (if the CAD is good). This is nice when it works. Is there a way to turn this off? I am trying to select a round slot and PC-DEMON keeps seeing it as a circle or slot with length and width the same.

    Please help.

    Have you tried to keep picking the required number of points off the cad. I have had this problem with slots but after I pick all 6 points it usually gives me the correct data.

    There is no job so simple that it can't be done wrong.

      No luck. It does not add points to the tally in the corner. Worked around it by making dummy edge points and constructing a line to get the angle vector. Just another day in paradise.

        mode

        If you are in surface mode you can pick 6 points.
        In wireframe mode you can pick just ones, but you can get a wrong guess(circle),If you keep on clicking around slot you should get propper slot too.
        CAD should be OK with wire,

          1 Click Circles & Slots...


          Okay, this may seem like a silly question but how do you get this wonderful feature to start working again? I loaded 3.7mr2 about 3 months ago and the feature worked great. After programming two or three parts it just mysteriously stopped working??? At first I just thought it was the particular type of cad file I was working with at the time and did not think too much of it. I import step, iges, DXF, DWG, unigraphics, catia4, and catia v5 (of course some of these using the cad translators). I don't know what happened, but it never worked again???

            I am in surface mode. In 3.7 they made it so you can select features with one click. It only works sporadically for me. Hey lets throw this in there, not test it and give them no control over it. Thanks Wilcox. Its enough to drive a Mormon to drink.

              One Click CAD Features

              I have noticed this on non planar slots too (3.7mr3), using the same cad file on 3.5 or 3.5 version works OK (picking 6 points around the slot). Is there a para meter to deactivate "One Click CAD Features"?

              TIA

                  Yes, there is a setting in the PC-DMIS Settings Editor where you can disable the single-click mode for Auto Features. I'm not sure what version it was added in.
                  1. Close down PC-DMIS and launch the PC-DMIS Settings Editor.
                  2. Look in the AutoFeatures section, and select the SingleClickCADSelectionDisabled entry.
                  3. Its current value probably says None (FALSE).
                  4. Click the True option.
                  5. Click Save Setting.
                  6. Click Close.
                  7. Restart PC-DMIS.

                      Jared, have you been 'assigned' by higher powers to 'handle' this forum or are you doing this for fun? It's great to have a rep from WAI here - but it would be even better if that rep (assigned to handle the forum q's or not) to forward the suggestions, enhancements and bugs and whatnot. I mean, you got a chairman Mao sitting there telling everyone what to add/fix/remove from your software and disregarding the user community suggestions?

                      Come on, this is twothousandandfriggin'eight! WAI is doing exactly the opposite of what each successfull software company is doing today...

                        At least for 3.7 there is no setting for SingleClickCADSelectionDisabled

                          I think this is a great suggestion ! There are only 2 or 3 guys from WAI on here, but I thinks its voluntary and on their own time. I appreciate any info they post here. Maybe B & S and Wilcox ( Now one in the same paycheque anyway) will listen and allow it, but I won't hold my breath.
                          I think Hex would get more ppl to pay their yearly SMA if they actually supported this site and included support by Wilcox guys.

                          One thing to other users of this board. As much as I know this software is far from perfect, how about a little less attitude when complaining ? I mean, many times the issues have to do with us not knowing settings exist, or how to change them properly. Many times the answer is a O/S, or hardware issue or lack of ram or this or that, but ppl are a little too quick to blame the software. If we spent more time posting issues AFTER investigating things, we might get a bit more help here....just a thought.

                              I agree, I have been too fast sometimes with bashing the software for various stuff that have shown to be operator error. Nowadays, I keep a personal buglist of stuff that keep happening and try to do it some other way, in order to see if it is an operator error or an actual bug in the software. That list is getting bigger though...

                              Oh, and my attitude is directly related to the price and the customer service I receive and the attitude from the software producers - which is HIGH, NONE OR USE WORKAROUND and ARROGANT.

                              I do hope they don't leave though, but I was hoping they maybe could assign somebody as a 'user rep' - responsible for any and all input from this forum?
