I have a panel that was from a legacy file (Cadkey 99). It's a solid part and I brought it into Synchronous for a new design so I could edit it. At some point, I pulled the top flange and the cutout in the panel ended up removing the bend in the flange. Now, I want to fill in that cutout and redo the cutout. The problem is that I can't pull the edge of the cout over to fill in the hole. I've attached a Jing video link. I've tried several methods without luck. Any suggestions?
I just tried one more trick and it worked. I went to ordered, switched to part, and created an extruded shape the filled in the gap. I'll now move that feature to syncrhonous. I'm still not sure why I couldn't fill in the part using syncrhonous.
Have you tried turning off design intent when you pull the face?
Seems like it should work -- I'll look into it. But really the easiest way to do this is DELETE. Just fence the "feature" or faces you don't want any more and hit the delete key. That should do it.
Bruce, I did try to turn off design intent but the result was the same.
Dan, I just took a shot at deleting the faces but it failed as well.
I have attached the file for you to take a look at. This file was imported from a Cadkey solid file so there may be some errors in the geometry I'm missing.
I could get rid of the cutout by pulling the face beyond the other opposing face, upto the center of the circle and then removing the extra faces as seen in the video: Not a very elegant solution but it works for this particular case
and though the video is in ordered, I found this works in Synchronous as well.
Delete worked great for me. I just fenced the offending cutout face and hit delete and it was gone. I am using ST9 though -- that is the only difference I suppose.
Bob and Dan,
Thanks for taking a look at the file. Bob, for some strange reason, I can't get SE to let me drag the face over as you have done. It fails every time. I noticed you had Design Intent turned off and I even gave that a shot.
Dan, with Design Intent turned off, I was able to delete the faces. I'm still not sure why that didn't work for me when I tried it earlier.
I'm still puzzled as to why I'm not able to duplicate Bob's technique. Could there be another design intent setting I'm missing?
I wasn't able to do Dan's "trick" but I was able to do Tushar's.
