  • 1. QUESTION: Rendering in Maxwell using CPU's on the network
    Has anybody tried this? According to their website a normal license will allow rendering on up to 4 CPUs. In my case I want to run on the unused core of a dual core when SW is running on the other core. The OS in all cases is XP. This is only for rendering and the rendering will not be taking place on the machine that creates the model.
  • 2. Translator for Inventor files?
    I'm just wondering whether anyone has run across a cheapware translator that can take Inventor files and output neutral format without actually having Inventor? I've checked out several commercial applications, and they all are WAY out of my range by many thousands of dollars in some cases. I have a client who is transitioning from Inventor to SolidWorks and all of their engineers are so busy it's almost impossible to get them to translate reference assemblies for me -- not that I really want to be bugging them all the time with such requests anyway. I could spend maybe $500, but of course "object is no money", if possible. Thanks, 'Sporky'
  • 3. question on arc direction in vba macro
    ok maybe my question is not qute clear. so let me rephrase it: how do you find out the direction of an arc? not where it's start and end points are (I guess "sense" tells me that) but if it's a clockwise or a counter-clockwise arc? p.s. I'm talking about edges of a face that are arcs, not sketches of arcs.

Has most Solidworks models for direct download.

Very detailed and great for running COSMOS prior to construction.

I clicked on at least 20 assorted items and no models.  Do you have a 
specific example?

We had the McMaster boys in on 4-13-05 and they were asking about
suggestions, changes and how we used their website.  The first thing which
popped into my mind was to make their 3D models more accessible.

Instead of searching and searching down through all their items, then
entering given specifications, then showing if there was an available
models, just get me to the parts.  If something is exactly as I require,
great, they are number one on the vendor list.  If not, let me modify an
available model/solid for my requirements and I'll search for vendors later,
but I'll get my work done.

They could be a great source for part data and part dimensional

Give me your thoughts, I'm sure they are still open for suggestions and I'm
positive they don't watch this group.

I just thought it would be nice to see what everyone else thought.

1.IMPORT: McMaster Carr parts

Just had a user come to me with a problem. He stated that a pipe
fitting he had downloaded from McMaster had zero weight. I looked into
it and the part was scaled down by 25.4 in the STEP file he had
gotten. Has anybody else run into this?

There were two possible fixes. One was to import with template units
and use mm. The other was to scale the part.

One cause I thought of was that whoever created the STEP didn't write
units into the file since SW by default looks for units in STEP files.

2.Charted drawings - Models warped but flat drawing charted

Ok fellas,
    I will do my best to explain what we do and hopefully it isn't as
difficult as it seems.

We have a sidewall on a body that has a large curve to it.  The model of the
sidewall is modeled curved as that's how it fits into the weldment.  However
the sheet is cut flat and not bent but warped during manufacturing and
welded in place.  What I have then is a model of a curved sheet that really
needs a drawing showing just the flat.  The problem is I want to chart these
with other flats of the same material.  Is there a way to do this.  Cutting
just cuts a flat sheet out of 11 ga material and any other 11 ga could be
charted on this drawing.

If this isn't clear let me know and I'll try to explain better.
