Re: "Cut Normal" bug? Inventor 2015 Pro

HI TO ALL TIN BASHERS

I SPEND 90% ON INVENTOR TIME USING SHEET METAL, WHICH IS A PLEASURE TO USE MOST OF THE TIME

I LIKE MANY OF YOU HAVE LONGED FOR THE CUT NORMAL FUCTION, SO WHEN IN 2015 IT WAS ADD I WAS DELIGHTED

BUT DISSAPOINTED WITH IT'S LIMITATIONS. IT CANT HANDLE CUT TO CONICS OR CYLINDERS IF THE CUT PASSES THROUGH EDGES

AND  CUTS TO BENDS THAT CHANGE DIRECTION SO FOR THE MOST PART ITS BACK TO UNFOLD CUT AND REFOLD

WHICH WORKS MOST OF THE TIME. BRAVO TO AUTODESK FOR STARTING THE PROCESS HOPE THEY KEEP IMPROVING

THE FUCTION UNTIL WE HAVE A MORE RELIABLE COMMAND

Hi! This particular issue has been resolved on the Update1 to R2015. Please download the update and try it out. After the update is installed, simply open the sheet metal part and do Rebuild All.

Thanks!

The issue has not been resolved.  It is still doing the exact same thing as the first time I tried it!

It cuts out the whole backside of the part.  This is a new part, and I tried "rebuild all".  Same result.

Hi! I think indeed, the issue is not completely resolved by Update1 yet. But, for the part you attached to this thread at the beginning, do you see the correct result?

The issue here is that Inventor fails to pick the persistent planar reference before and after cutting normal in this case. For contour roll profile on XY plane, the problem seems to go away on Update1. But, if the profile plane is not on XY, the bad behavior is still there. I will work with development and get to the bottom of it.

Many thanks!

Hi to all interested in the cut normal and pattern on cone developments

I have a solution that seems to work in most cases if you may be useful

to try. You may be able to follow the working from the ipt if not

i will run through the  method and it also folds and unfolds ok
