DriveWorks Pro 15: Draft [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.

Draft

ParameterTypeDescription
AngleAngleSet the draft angle
AllowReducedAngleTrue/FalseAllows a draft angle to be created when the resulting surface would be at an angle of 90 degrees or more
ReverseDirectionTrue/FalseChange the direction in which the draft angle is applied
FacePropagation

One of the following values:

None

Tangent

AllLoops

InnerLoops

OuterLoops

The draft will only affect the selected faces

The draft will propagate to tangent surfaces

All faces will be drafted

All inner faces extruded from the neutral plane will be drafted

All outer faces next to the neutral plane will be drafted

StepType

One of the following values:

Perpendicular

TaperedStep

Creates the draft surfaces perpendicular to the original main face

Creates the draft surfaces in the same manner as the tapered surfaces
