Below i have attached some screen shots of the routes i am tring to create tubes for. Creating the tubes fails and i believe the problem is the radius of the curve segment vurses the od of the tube. If this is true how do i change these curves to make them hold a larger radius?
also i would like to know how other people handle tubes of the same length and p/n that may be used in different assemblies where the route is different.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just as an FYI this is a challenge for many and at SEU16 "Flexable Hoses" was one fo the most discussed and requested ERs for SE Assembly in the Round Table.
There are other folks inthe group that have more experiacne in this regard, lets hope they chime...
I'm absouteley confident that You have Your reasons for using curves here.
But maybe it will also solve Your problem if using a straight line "sketch" with defined bend radii to get Your tubes.
If I look onto the picture I see the main part of tube curves nearly linear with very equaliy bend radii.
Using straight lines with parameter for radius can do nearly the same but makes it a lot easier.
Consider it wether it will be convenient to You.
If you could project the sketches to 2D planes, then make the curves controlled by the 2D planes, then you could have controls over the radius from the 2D perspective.
or using a 3D sketch or as mentioned the line sketch in piping modul
