Trace curve feature in Solid Edge ST6




I want to know if Solid Edge ST6 has the tool "Trace curve," like Pro/ENGINEER has, beacuse I have to send a project to a teacher of mine and he told me to use this feature. The mechanism I created is the Artobolevsk's mechanism to trace the Diocle's curve (as you can see here, if you have Wolfram CDF Player plugin installed in your computer) and I have to demonstrate the curve while the system is running. I created the whole project using Solid Edge ST6 due to its simple interface.


If, for some reason, SE ST6 doesn't have this feature, I was thinking about changing the files format, in order to open them with ProE. Do you have any objection to this idea? Do you think it will work?


@Edit: I see now it's not the right place to post my question. I'll do it in the right forum!


Thank you for any help you can provide,

Re: Trace curve feature in Solid Edge ST6


Hello Leo,


I am not able to see the mechanism since the CDF player is not installed on my machine.

Its a whopping 200 MB download Smiley Surprised


Perhaps you can record the screen and share on

I read the ProE online help about tracing and understood the functionality.


But you have by mistake posted this Q in the correct forum.

With little help using programming, a point in the mechanism can be traced.

I can see, I can do this using a .Net program.



Well, that would be quite some effort.

Let me know if you are interested.
