Can not delete faces

Hello,

 

I'm new using SE (previusly I used SW and Inventor), I have a model on which I need to delete some radius and three rips but I can not. I also tried to do a revolution cut but it also gives me an error.

 

I'm attaching the 3D model.

 

Best Regards.

Hi @Lucmartzz

 

 

 

so far so good.

But which ribs and radii do You want to deletee?

 

 

This is the more important question here.

Wolfgang

HI @Lucmartzz

 

 

no need for answering my previous post.

 

I have seen, that there is no single fillet being able to be deleted

 

The all are not usable as sync fillet.

 

BTW, there is a good hint and a rule to make fillets, chamfers, etc. always as traditional feature rather than sync.

And this is a recommandation not only for Solid Edge but also for other CAD software

 

I will follow upto find out the right order to delete Your faces

Hi @Lucmartzz

 

 

 

OK, finally found a way to delete anything.

 

Your part need the old fashion hard method to understand who is the boss.

 

SAVE AS parasolid, import back as part, optimize geoemetry and now everything is possible.

 

Hard but effective!

Hello @hawcad

 

Thanks for the help, I guess I will have to get more deep into how-to combine both types of modeling (sync and ordered)

 

Happy New Year!

Hi @Lucmartzz

 

 

 

I would like to say, not only in hybrid modeling (sync and tradtional) but also in how to build the model.

 

I would for example suggest to first fillet an area with the rib before patterning.

Then group those features and pattern the group.

So You always have one master defintion geometry and the multiplication pattern.

Also if there are more than one feature with thes ame pattern number (3 times) then I prefer to group them and pattern them once rather than creating 3 patterns with 3 instances.

 

 

But this all is a matter of experience and personal approach

Wolfgang
