section problems on open shell.

49 Views, 14 Replies

I posted in CF, I have an shelled tube open on one end that I drew in IV6 sp1. the other end is thickened and then I gave it a full radius. I cannot get the section lines in the idw to show up right.. any suggestions as to the correct way to draw? anyone else have this problem? I'm using an oxygen VX1, is it graphics related?

Thanks,

David

How about using a revolve instead of a
shell?

good point, I'll give it a try..
I wonder why IV couldnt section it? The solid seemed fine. I wonder, does anyone else see the screwed up section lines in my example, like it cannot find the boundry. It might have something to do with sectioning fillets, or my graphics card.
Thanks, David

I'm having exactly the same problem with your file.
I'm using a VX1 Pro also, though.

I got your file to work. IV is having a problem
with your scale. 40x seems a bit much for it for some reason. I scaled it down
to full size, and hatch works fine. Don't know why. (Bug?!)

The section lines appear to be all right, but the hatch is apparently using
very course facet lines instead of an arc for the trim border. Scale the
hatch to .125 and the trim lines are easy to see. This all appears to be
caused by the large magnification of the drawing view. (Is the part
representative of something you are doing?) How to fix it; I haven't a clue.
Perhaps someone else or someone at Adesk can comment.

I tried revolving, the same thing happened. It must have something to do with the scale then. it works fine in both cases at 1:1, but at 40x it screws up. but.. that is the size of the parts we are making, I'd like to keep the ipt at full size not blown up just to make the idw work at 1:1..
most parts I draw are scaled 20x to 60x in order to see them.

got it, that makes sense..
I posted the lase reply as you posted yours. I had said that this is the size of most of the parts that I draw, I hate to have to draw the ipt bigger just to satisfy the idw..

Just out of my own curiosity, I scaled the view to full scale and zoomed in
really close. I noticed that the hatch lines don't quite match-up to the object
lines even at full scale. It seems to draw stright border lines, like AutoCAD's
circles before you regen. the drawing. Seems like a IV problem.
