DriveWorks Solo 15: Ruled Surface [send feedback...]

Introduction

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Ruled Surface

ParameterTypeDescription
DistanceDistanceSet the distance of the ruled surface
AngleAngleSet the angle of a TaperedToVector type ruled surface
TrimAndKnitTrue/FalseSet overlapping surfaces created by the ruled surface feature to trim and knit
ConnectingSurfaceTrue/FalseSet the ruled surface feature to create connecting surfaces at discontinuous edges
Type

One of the following values:

TangentToSurface

NormalToSurface

TaperedToVector

Sweep

Create a ruled surface tangent to the original surface

Create a ruled surface normal to the original surface

Create a ruled surface tapered to the direction vector

Create a ruled surface perpendicular to the direction vector

Create a swept ruled surface along a guide curve
