Length of spline

Hi, Anybody knows how to drive the length of a spline in TS7? I have a spline with fix end points and I want to constrain the length of that spline to a given value. When using the dimension tool in a sketch, it will let me put a length dimension but as a driven dimension and not a driving dimension...

Hi Jonas, Thanks for posting your questions. Shall I suggest that you maybe separate your message in several posts so each of the question/topic can be answered separately? I am not familiar with TopSolid Wood yet but I'm sure someone can answer some of your concerns and I think you will have more c...

Hi, I remember toying around this a long time ago! It's been a while, but I think you have to use a way to differentiate the 2 <code> values. When I was using .cat files for my screws, I had to put a $ sign like this [<dollarsigncode>] (replace dollarsign by $) to tell TopSolid to read the reference...

I would simply extract it from the assembly (right click on the part, select extract).

That way we don't get the lines in the middle of the shape.

Hi Robert, That's a typical case of the swept shape function. There are 2 important conditions : - the curve section and the drive line need to intersect (there might be an other way but so far never worked otherwise for me) - the origin of the curve sections need to be set correctly Enclosed is a s...
