Hi TopNoob! Let me first tell you that as far as I know, TopTool is dead in TopSolid 7 Cam. Every sample I have seen has reinforced this. That said please keep one thing in mind regarding TopTool. It was added around 10 years ago as a way to manage a library of tools. Back then, there simply wasn't ...

Hi Top Noob, It seems strange to me that you are not using TopSolid'Cam. I am curious as to what your other systems can do that you think TopSolid'Cam cannot do... Perhaps, there is something I can do to point you in a direction here. If you would, let me know some key points. happy programming! Bill

Hi Barspin, At this point, I do not believe that the Background BitMap function exists in TopSolid 7 yet. If I was to guess, it will probably come in a future version some time. As you know, TopSolid 7 is a completely new product and has a lot of growing to do! I have already seen some of the functi...

API's and Macro's

HI guys, As for the API, I don't think that one officially exists yet. But as TopSolid 7 is a 100% .NET application, you might be able to do some interesting things already...if you know .NET. As for the Macros....what are you looking for exactly? Making smart library components? In fact TopSolid 7 ...

For me TopSolid 7 is more of a revolution than evolution. I have been working with it for around 2 years now and at this point, I honestly do not like going back to the V6 product for mechanical design. As I see it, TopSolid 7 has hit a home run thus far in a few areas. They are: - Usability - Learn...

Correction has been made

Hi all!

It seems that the problem with the JP352 nipples was resolved in the 220 patch. I am sorry I did not report this sooner to you. (as we are on patch 232 now).(which by the way...it works there too!).

Just wanted to pass this along.

Hi there, My first question to you would be this. 1) Are the cavities the same? Meaning is this a two cavity mold of the same part? If so, did you split them at the same time? or did you split one and then use the multi cavity function. Either way, you have the same issue. The insert function only w...
