[Solved] draft analysis

Unread post by Matt Berube » Thu Mar 08, 2007 4:54 pm

This picture is from the "create a mold with TopSolid Mold" video on the www.TopSolid.com website. How do I perform the draft analysis as shown in this picture ? When I use PART, DRAFT I get a different result.

Hi,

you just have to use the Analyze | Normal function, and go in Draft mode.... 8)

The TopSolid'Mold draft analysis works only to measure the correct angle of a specific face, and to check the faces that are included between 0 and the value you entered :wink:

can you give me an example of how this function would be used with the draft function not turned on?

i see how it is informative but not how it is useful...

thanks
