Create Profile from Surface

Create Profile from Surface

For the love of all that is holly, please allow us the change the name of the profile when we select the surface and add it to the profile list instead of default name i.e. Surface (1,2,3...).

 

Please and thank you,

I have my toolspace - profile - commands - createprofilefromsurface settings to change the default name format (profile name template) to the field "sampled surface name" and incremental number format. This way my surface name is in the name of the surface in profile view.

That is not a bad work around @kerriL3F5N. But my current employer wants profiles named by type of profile then alignment name.  (eg - align name, fg - align name, cl - align name)  

Your advice is helpful bc I can have it fill out the alignment name for me. Then I will still have to add the eg -, cl - or fg -. It's no the end of the world, but it would be nice if I could just name the profile when I create it. I was in the middle of a large subdivision and sampling multiple surfaces when I decided to hastily vent on the forum.

Well, I would agree naming your profile as it goes into the profile view would be nice.....lol....

doubt we will see this option...I'm using C3D 2016 BTW.

This would be very beneficial for us.  We have the template programmed for EG @ <Alignment name> but we still have to go remove the counter every time.  We leave the counter so that we know if there's a profile been made unintentionally.
