My Drafting Wishlist for Spaceclaim
5 Replies

Here is a list of thing I feel that could be improved on for drafting in Spaceclaim.  Most of them have enhancement request.  Feel free to add to the list, or if you see something that you can…Continue

Direct Modeling Problem
12 Replies

So here is an issue that I ran into in Spaceclaim, but Inventor Fusion has the same problem.  So if I have a pipe shape that has a 90 degree bend to it.  (see attached) How do you control the bend…Continue

Model based definition

I was curious if anyone out there is using MBD model based definition, and would like to share their thoughts, experiences.... I recently have been looking for a better way to annotate/dimension the…Continue

First Spaceclaim Project

Thought I would share some images of my first Spaceclaim project, since it's probably a little bit different than the usual spaceclaim project.  We are structural engineer firm and have been using…Continue

Steel Detailing in Spaceclaim

"Thanks.  So here is my opinion of Spaceclaim.  For it's strengths.  Modeling and making modifcations was breeze, with the exception there is no library of AISC standard shapes, so you will have to get those from somewhere else.…"

Steel Detailing in Spaceclaim

"Hi Dennis. You have modeled some impressive projects in SpaceClaim. I want to know your opinion. Is SpaceClaim a decent platform for steel detailing, compared to Plain AutoCAD, RhinoBIM or Solidworks. I am interested in stair and platform…"

"Yeah I placed an arc in sheet metal mode, but I had to made sure that "profile" was checked in the options dialog.     Dennis"

Dennis Nelson replied to martin kopplow's discussion 'Unwrapping a circular room in Spaceclaim?' in the group SpaceClaim Users
"Huh. That seems to work for me. See attached. Like I said before though assuming your video displays are flat and not curved with the wall, they are going to be slightly distorted when you unroll/flatten the sheet metal part. Although maybe that…"

Dennis Nelson replied to martin kopplow's discussion 'Unwrapping a circular room in Spaceclaim?' in the group SpaceClaim Users
"That is a good one, one that even BIM software struggles with. I think sheet metal is going to be your best bet, I was able to unfold this shape.  I think your best bet would be to project the video display onto the sheet metal part then unfold…"

Paul Hamilton replied to Dennis Nelson's discussion 'Direct Modeling Problem'
"Martin, Good question. I guess it depends on your definition of “direct modeling”. I think being able to control geometry is important in any CAD tool. Constraints in a direct model are very different than in a history-based model. In…"

martin kopplow replied to Dennis Nelson's discussion 'Direct Modeling Problem'
"So if it requires some constraints, this is not exactly a direct modeling approach any longer, is it?   Martin"

Paul Hamilton replied to Dennis Nelson's discussion 'Direct Modeling Problem'
"Dennis, For the minor radius use the Offset function. To change the major radius requires some constraints - which are not available in the Personal edition - unfortunately."

Dennis Nelson replied to Dennis Nelson's discussion 'Direct Modeling Problem'
"So I just downloaded Creo Elements/Direct Personal edition to play around with.  I thought I would see I figure how you did.  When you changed the major and minor radius of the bend what tool did you access.  I can't seem to find…"

Dennis Nelson replied to Willem Wagelaar's discussion 'File structure in SpaceClaim failes'
"So how do you print multiple sheets to multiple pdf's?  Like Paul I have only been able to print one at time.  Which is very slow."

Dennis Nelson replied to Willem Wagelaar's discussion 'File structure in SpaceClaim failes'
"In the save as setting for pdf I set it to "Facet Only" and it seems to work.  I haven't been able to get the "Geometry (B-rep) setting to open in Acrobat.  Also I set override the units and set them my self.  I…"
