Indexing

Hello

When I use automatic Indexing on dft, then identical parts will have only one index and rest of them are not indexed. Is there any option to put indexes to all parts, incl. identical parts?

Re: Expressions, how they really work

Re: Best way from 3Dmax to TopSolid

There is no good way to do that. One option is to export to DWG and then import it to TS, but it will be mess due 3DS Max using meshes, but You will need solid part. You can try to search solutions how to get solid part from 3DS Max, maybe it helps. I know some guys who are doing that badass things ...

Re: Draft for an Assembly | Include standard

Hello Wordpress page asks login :) Drawer - I bet it's a single unit, not sub-assembly or content to take out parts. Anyway You need numbering/indexing for machining first to get right drillings. Without them You will be surprised, sadly :) Also it's good to use filters to filter out all things whic...

Re: Sawing Toolpaths in XML Export

I think Your parts don't have Indexes and part indexing (identification) is the most imortant thing in CAM area. You may have plenty of parts with same size, but different machinings - without indexing they are in same row in BOM. Go with with part identification and result is more better. (word s t...
