Possible work around. Use the pocket command on a block using the text as the wire. Then use the create wire by face edge command to get your wire. Not how it should be done but it may work for you now.

I'm glad you where able to get it fixed Goodtimes. Invalid blocks is the first thing you should check. Jehronimo, there is a bug of some type in 2008 with Mold Full Section.

2008 definetly has a problem. It's been reported. The problem is a "Full Section". You can cut a "Section" (Command next to it). It is not a bad geometry problem, although you should check it.

I've had this on 2 different tools already, VERY FRUSTRATING.

File Save Linked Out

I'd like to see a command under FILE that would be "Save Linked Out". This command would copy the file you have open, All linked files and Library componets to a destination folder. It would work like the current LINK command but without so many steps.

To make sure a file has all componets. Use the LINK function under the FILE menu. With this command you can make a new copy of the job and all of it's componets to a new directory and it re-links the new file to the componets in it's own folder. That way if you have your own componets it will copy t...

I believe the 2008 viewer program does open TS files now.

I will confirm this also. No tappings on the patches after 248.

ALSO: The 2008 version of the software has the same problem. No tappings for Pipe plugs, quick connectors, and baffles.

You can put your disc in and tell it to repair, then reinstall the 248 patch.

All DME Sprue bushing are and have been wrong for years. Try to use a 3/4" rad once. The "O" size never changes. This has been reported many times. Just another thing the end user has to correct.

Agreed, it should be added. And for the C'bore Dia I'd like that to be an actual Dia. Dimension not a clearance distance around the plug. That makes it easier to set.

TopSolid Mold Waterline Enhancement Request

One of the things that drives me nuts sometime is having to type in the Waterline Dia and Upper Length. I know I can set it in Options and it is. But I use more than one waterline size. I'd like to see TS remember the last sizes used. So if my default is .4375 x .125 and I change it to .5625 x 0.000...

I just started over and it worked this time.

I know there is a part hiding in the background always. It's the one that gets imprinted and is actually used to make the core cavity blocks.

2008 Mold Problem Selecting Parts

Well I'm attempting my first mold in 2008. I inserted my part as normal. But when I went and tried to create my Parting Lines it would not let me select the part. I could select the part hiding in the background then it would. So I got my Parting Lines finally created. So I went to create the "Shell...
