Parasolid error with surface by formula

Hello I try to make a surface by formula with the following parameters X(u,v) = 1mm*v Y(u,v) = when(v*0,2mm*sin(u*1°)>4mm;4mm;when(v*0,2mm*sin(u*1°)<(-4mm);-4mm;v*0,2mm*sin(u*1°))) Z(u,v) = when(v*0,2mm*cos(u*1°)>4mm;4mm;when(v*0,2mm*cos(u*1°)<(-4mm);-4mm;v*0,2mm*cos(u*1°))) interval of u (non perio...

Re: STL export is incomplete

Some weeks later I encounter the error again. But also found the solution. When you have a part build up from several shapes and then export the representation of the collection of these shapes. It will result in an stl file that gives an error in Cura and other programs. But not in WIndows print 3D...

Re: STL export is incomplete

Hello Julien, thanks for reacting.

I did not understand the purpose of the three different representations.
When I export to STL I see now that I can select the type of representation.
That helps. It looks better in the standard windows viewer.
But it gives an failed to load in Cura :-(.

How to make a complete copy of a project

I want to make several variotions of one design. So I thought to just copy a complete project.
What is the best way to do that.

When I tried to copy entities (I don't now anymore how) it resulted in a strang empty shape (see first picture). I don't know how to fill it.

STL export is incomplete

Dear Forum I succeeded in designing a bass clarinet mouthpiece in TopSolid. TS22.jpg But now I wanted to export it as stl to make a 3D printed prototype. The problem now is that the stl export is incomplete. Only the grey bottom shape is exported. The basic part is composed out of 2 shapes. That are...

Re: how do you substract one part from another

Hi Brian
I tried that but did not succeed in anything else than just adding parts together.

Re: how do you substract one part from another

And how do I indicate that?

I don't see that option.

Re: how do you substract one part from another

Hello Brian,
Thanks for reacting.
I know where to find it but I don't know how to use is. I think it is clumpsy. :oops:

I want to do this part c = part A - part B
1) I select part A
2) then select the suctract dialog
3) and then?

I see a tools field that is empty. Do I have to get part B in there?

how do you substract one part from another

Maybe I am not used to the TopSolid userinterface yet (I am a new user). I have to define a complex object and thought to build it from several parts. Some parts have to be added to the base part while others have to be subtracted from it. So I prepares some parts. But I don't know how to subtract o...

from curve to formula to extruded shape

Dear TopSolid forum, I am new to the TopSolid environment and want to implement some complex shapes in TopSolid. One of the things that I try is to define a shape with curve to formula. So I define two simple curves that touch each other. Then complete it to a closed shape with a 2D sketch. When I w...
