Find Features using Fusion

472 Views, 6 Replies

Greetings,

I am having trouble using the Find Features tool in fusion on an Inventor assembly.  The model uses lots of frame generated parts like i-beams etc.  I want to remove the corner radii on the i-beams for use in autodesk simulation mechanical.

 

Can anyone suggest how i do this?  I have used the tutorial and had no trouble with the sample files.

 

I have tried saving the inventor file as step, igs or as the native .iam.  None of this works!

Sally,

the file is 2-6 Mb which is too big to send.  Can you send me a ftp link so I can send it?

The steps to find features like fillet, then remove corner radii.

1. Set selection filter to bodies

2. Select a body in canvas

3. Call Find feature

4. Goto browser and delete fillets (as we haven't support "Find in Browser" in TP1, you need scroll the browser to find the node with underscore shadow)

 

Please see attached video for detail. as it's too big, I just send it through email.

Sally

Sally, thanks.  Does this mean we have to do one body at a time?

 

Is there an easier way to do this within asm?  As I said earlier, I'm trying to mesh this model without fillets etc

Hi Tim,

 

You can multi-select bodies by window select and find all the fillet features in these bodies. However you cannot delete these fillets at one time, as you have to select the fillets manually. And so far as I know, you probably cannot mesh this model without fillets directly in Fusion.

Regards,
Sally
