Re: define clash shape

the videos are good to show you what you don't know, but honestly there is a lot more useful info in the "Methodology Docs" and all the "What's New Docs"

if it helps at all I've been working on TopSolidWood for over two years and still don't have it in the production chain.

Re: define clash shape

I feel that not all the menus / operations are well documented your feelings are absolutely correct. most of the documentation is in the "what's new" docs and the "Methodology" docs.. print them all out and read them oldest to newest. I actually have 4 different 2" binders with * Methodology Docs *...

SINVIA,
perhaps you could upload one of your projects for us to look at, and tell us what you have done so far and, as near as you can tell, where your problem is.

thanks

Re: Nest ting multi file

Nestin needs CAM too to put parts to machine. Without CAM Nesting is useless.
not totally true. We have CadCode We can export parts and process everything and get code without TopSolid CAM.

So YES you need some sort of CAM processor but not necessarily TopSolid's CAM

Re: Edit Subsets

answered today by Missler and France
I got word back from France. You need to use Edit>Name, type the element you want to change, and then you can rename it. I requested as an improvement.

Edit Subsets

How do you edit the names of the subsets?
I know that the second part (the designation) can be edited under the the Characteristics
But how to you edit the first part? (this is the part that it would order by)

Re: Drive Blocks?

nothing has changed
if you create a regular driver block, (on my machine) you cannot edit it and turn it into a DW driver block as in the first video.

the first video shows the edit of an existing Driver block
the second video shows the creation of a new DW driver block.

Re: InPlace Subset

two part follow up questions.
1. is there any documentation on the subsets? in the what's new or another white paper?

2. under the inplace subset feature, what's a serial set?

InPlace Subset

In TP6.19 is it possible to create inplace subsets with same names? I'm trying to create similar groups for top level numbering but contents of each group being different. over simplified example: Item (to be numbered) Part-A Part-B Item (to be numbered) Part-C Part-D Item (to be numbered) Part-E
