Problems with projecting face

62 Views, 13 Replies

One of the reasons I have never had much success with adaptive parts is in
INV 5.3 I could never get the project command to roject a face. For some
reason it would only project edges. So I just tried this in INV6 and to my
excitment the face highlighted and then when I selected it I get this
message:

i:smileytongue:roject Face: problems encountered while executing this command.

Any ideas? I am in an assembly file and create a new part and select a face
which brings up a new sketch then I try to project faces from any parts and
get this....

You can only project face from other part if CPGP is selected, if it is not
then you can project face using "project cut edges"with new part sketch but
it will not adapt. In 5.3 I believe it is the same.
Is CPGP on or off?

Sorry Brian, see application options, assembly, "Cross Part Geometry
Projection"

Guessing Cross Part Geometry Projection.... or in layman terms .....Associative Edge/Loop
Geometry Projection.

Did I win the prize 8^)

OK in CS files I have put a screen shot of my assembly tab and
the error and
the problem assm. Can someone take a look at this for me its
drivin me
totally nuts (not far to drive).

Open cab floor mount assm.iam

Activate cab mount vert plate

Make a sketch on the front face of the plate where the plate with
the holes
meets it.

Try to project the face from the end of the C-Section sheetmetal
bit I get
the error and I cant seem to project faces EVER???

To be honest I have never seen Inventor project a face of another
part
through all my time using it and I am begining to think its a
myth...

Got it Thanks Chuck.....

Brian,

Yes, we did get a chance to look into this. The problem is that the part
you are using is "adaptive" in some other assembly.
Projecting a face from another part uses adaptivity. You are only allowed
to have one instance of an adaptive part. This does make
sense (from our perspective) since having multiple instances be adaptive
would require that a given part have more than one representation.

If you did NOT intend for this part to be adaptive in any other assembly,
you should turn off its "awareness" of already being adaptive in some other
assembly so that you CAN make it adaptive in the assembly you are currently
working on. You can do this by going to the Tools|Document Settings|Model
dialog and turn it off.

If you did want it to be adaptive in another assembly, the only option you
have is to do a save Copy As and replace the current part with the copy.

Hope this helps.

Chuck

I wonder if it would be possible to have an error message indicate what the
problem is? This would have driven me nuts, too.

On a side note, I noticed that even though I have [enable cross part assoc
proj's] off, the faces of other parts in the assembly were selectable for
projection, which shouldn't be.
---------------------

Brian, I don't know if it's any help for you (and you are probably aware of
it); I think it's a consensus that it's best to keep the functionality turned
off and use to make the projections associative when desired.
