Shrinkwrapping Assemblies

What is the best setting for shrinwrapping an assembly?

 

I've found shrinkwrapping it as a surface causes problems with the video card when rotating the model and placing views on a drawing.

 

Regards

If you are seeing some issues, can you elaborate about the problem and which version of Inventor you are seeing this issue. Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Vinod

I have followed the instructions.
I've found when using the surface composite it has troubles rotating.

Using 2012 pro SP 2.

Hi,

 

How big is the assembly. Can you able to change the graphics settings in Application options to Compatibility view or software graphics and test.

 

Do let me know your thoughts.

Hi Vinod

 

Assembly has about 2000 occurrences.

 

Tried different graphics settings. Still no good.

 

It actually struggles in drawing mode to.

 

Works quite well on single solid body derived setting.

 

Only problem is the compute time is slower compared with the surface setting when updating the derived assembly.

 

Regards

Paul.

Hi,

 

It looks like we might need to analyze your data. I tried with a simple model and couldn't able to reproduce the behavior. Do let me know, if you would like to share the dataset. I will arrange for a secure FTP location.

Hi Vinod

 

I'm happy to put something on ftp site. However it wont be the complete model just a small sub assembly due to confidentiality.

 

Please send me details.

 

Thanks

Can you also confirm whether you can reproduce the problem, if you create Shrinkwrap using the following settings.

 

There are issues sometimes if the following options marked in red are checked when creating Shrinkwrap of surface parts.
