Re: Animate Assembly

So from what I understand from your not looking to animate it being taken apart and assembled but just want to travel around your design and present it so I would suggest looking at Assembly | Travelling is much easier I think I have not used it in a while I think you can even draw geometry for the ...

Re: CURVED raised panel profile mismatch

I would say you will have to do it the long way with Profile sketch and Guide curve. I assume your using the moulding function?

Re: Process unknown (FormUser3.frm)

Are the holes thru? are the parts duplicated or repeated? Can you share the file it would be much faster for me to trouble shoot?
attached are the design model and the cam process default associations to the hole model picked in design are both parts using the same Hole model?

Re: Process unknown (FormUser3.frm)

formUser3.frm is referring to your process you created for a feature like example: a groove, drill or pocket. From my experience you can get this when you try to use the wrong process with a operation on a part (example try to use groove process on a pocket feature).

Re: MOUSE Recommendations

So my suggestion to you is a 5-button mouse. forward and back button on the side as for make we use the logitect M705 or the M510, M500 for corded. Also keep in mind that the size of your hand plays a big part in the ability to easily use the side buttons. I would suggest you configure one side butt...

Re: Applied automated machining to component?

The Moulding function is not like component tooling you select the moulding function from wood toolbar then select your standards instead of TopSolid wood then select the tool you created and saved to your library and then you will see the driving parameters to the right to be altered.

Re: Nest ting multi file

"Same size, different drilling and same barcode" Just to add to this comment when numbering parts in TopSolid to identify unique parts keep in mind the limitations there are base on fields available in the BOM template. If I have two parts the same size in thick x width x length, material, coating, ...

Re: TopSolid nesting for band saw machines

I would suggest you ask about how to setup the interface & or export to cutrite and what TopSolid file do you export to cutrite it may not be a nest file but just the parts from the assembly and then let cutrite optimize. I also think you will need to contact your re-seller or support to figure how ...

Re: BOM Examples?

As for standard I made my own I would say it depends on how your defining your parts & assembly's. and what information from them you want in your BOM table will dictate how you make your BOM template. But here we use them for Cutlist's, and BOM and we expost to an excel template that is formated an...
