Kinematic Senario

It would be nice to be able to enter a parameter and/or an expression in the value fields when setting up a scenario.

Thanks!

Jehronimo,

Thanks for the assistance! This is what I'm looking for. I'll keep playing around with this...it's a lot of fun getting the model to move around!

Thanks also for the information about naming the joints, and only naming the one that you want to do the driving.

Cordially,

Kevin

[solved] Kinematic movement

Hello all, I'm working on a project that involves a couple of moving parts that I need to test, and I've not worked with the kinematic side very much. I've attached the file that I'm working with...I'm trying to get the movements figured out before polishing up the design. I've got the movement that...

[Sovled] "End of File Reached" when opening machin

Has anyone else seen this message when opening a TopSolid'WoodCAM file: "End of File Reached (*location of file*)"?

Is there a way to fix this?

Running 6.12 and up to date.

Thanks!

[Solved] Undefining a part

Is there a way to un-define a part once you define it?

Attached is the file in question. I'd like to undefine "Pocket : Pocket1" as a part and keep as a tool.

Thanks!

My client that sent me the .asc file also sent me a .stl file (52MB) that crashed/stalled TopSolid when I tried to open it in TopSolid'Design.

I just opened it in TopSolid'WoodCam and it opened in about 5 seconds and it looks great!

Thanks for the tip!

[Solved] Working with a point cloud file

I've got a client that sent me a *.asc file. TopSolid does not want to open it. Is this a file format that TopSolid can work with?

Thanks!

[Solved] Verify function only runs one tool path

Somehow or another the Verify function settings changed, and it only runs the first toolpath, of several, and then stops. I've looked around in Tools/Options/Routing configuration/Verify, and did not see a place where you can change the setting to run the whole part. I've also looked through the set...

[Solved] TopSolid 6.10 compatibility with Windows 7

I saw in issue #45 of the newsletter that release 7 of TopSolid is Windows 7 compatible.

I've been looking into installing Windows 7 on my computer, and was wondering if TopSolid 6.10 will run well in that environment?

Thanks!
