DriveWorks Pro 15: Chamfer [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.

Chamfer

ParameterTypeDescription
Type

One of the following values:

AngleDistance

DistanceDistance

Vertex

Set type as AngleDistance to drive an edge or face chamfer with EdgeChamferAngle and Edge/VertexDistance1.

Set type as DistanceDistance to drive an edge or face chamfer with Edge/VertexDistance1 and Edge/VertexDistance2.

Set type as Vertex to drive a vertex chamfer with Edge/VertexDistance1, Edge/VertexDistance2 and VertexDistance3.

TangentPropagationTrue/FalseSet the chamfer to propagate to tangent edges.
KeepFeaturesTrue/FalseSet the chamfer to keep features otherwise removed by it's the creation.
EqualDistanceTrue/FalseSet the chamfer to be defined by Edge/VertexDistance1 for all distance values
EdgeChamferAngleAngleDefine the angle of the chamfer
Edge/VertexDistance1DistanceDefine the distance between the selected edge/vertex and the generated chamfer edge/vertex in the primary direction.
Edge/VertexDistance2DistanceDefine the distance between the selected edge/vertex and the generated chamfer edge/vertex in the secondary direction.
VertexDistance3DistanceDefine the distance between the selected vertex and the generated chamfer vertex in the tertiary direction.
