Re: Dimension text

I think it is the standard to make the text parallel to the dim. line. So can you show in a picture what you problem is?

Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

Well that's not true. Roughly: Based on the combination of machine, tool material and part material TopSolid select a Cutting condition document. There you can specify for a the cutting conditions even for different axial and radial depths. If you change these max axial or radial depths and click on...

Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

No volumill is à build in 3th party strategy. You need a special license if I am correct. But this strategy sure uses multiple feeds in one operation. It is not the option I was looking for. Volumill is much more than only variable federate. The tool path has a complete different approach aswell. Re...

Re: Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

I found one option. You can use technology points. Right click on the operation and check technology points. Now you can select the "+" to add a new point. This is done by selecting a segment of the operation, you can insert a M code or change the federate at this point. It is a manual way of workin...

Re: Variable Spindle RPM & Feed Rates

In TopSolid'CAM V6 it was possible to change the federate according to the material to be removed. I give it a try in V7 maybe I can find something.

Re: Milling of the bottom side

Reposition the part to another Cam file during which you rotate the part relative to the machine so the machine can actually reach the bottom. Like jou. need to do in real aswell.

Re: Full Section in another scale?

Yes Like you can change it in each other type of auxiliary view. Use the wrench and select the frame of the view to edit the basic settings. Directly at the top you will see lookalike definition of the scale. Use this to break the link of the scale between the reference view and this view. Type the ...

Re: Repeat screw for shelf

You have to repeat the screw aswell so you have to select them together with the shelf. If you want to repeat the screws afterwards and TopSolid asks for the repetition method you can select one of the repeated shelfs the system than uses the repetition method of the shelf for the screws. The repeti...

Locked file

Normally the green border has nothing to do with the file being locked. This is because you are in sketch mode. Finish the sketch and the border is gone.

Why it was there in your case is a little puzzle to me.....
