How to extract point co-ordinates from a curve.

Hey guys,

 

              I know we can create a curve using curve from table but is the reverse possible?

              I have a CAM whose points i want to extract in excel file.

              I have attached the part file.

     

             Also as soon as i transition to synchronous from ordered in this part file the part disapears. Is there a way i can change in to synchronous.

 

 

Thanks,

Balaji.

Extracting point from the existing curve would require a custom written macro.  There is no out of the box solution.

 

As far as Synchronous editing of the Ordered part, it is not possible.  In Solid Edge, the Synchronous node would be treated like the first Ordered feature, so when you activate the Synchronous node, it rolls back all the Ordered features until you reactivate the Ordered node.  If you need to make some changes to the Ordered body similar to using the steering wheel in Synchronous, look at the "Modify" section of the Home tab while in a Part in Ordered mode.  You will find commands such as Move Face, Rotate Face, and Delete Face.  Unfortunately they do not use the steering wheel for control as do the similar actions in Synchronous, but they will let you do the direct edit you want.


Thanks,

I believe it is not possible.

Perhaps it is better to create a draft from it and mark the points in a table?

 

I don't have a solution for you

You can move the ordered features to synchronous. Right click the last ordered feature and select "move to synchronous".

@bshand Thank you so much it worked Smiley Happy

 

@DanielMCMLXXXII Thanks for your reply.

How can i create an X,Y table for points ? I know it can be done for Holes

 

@Grundey Thanks for the information much appreciated Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

You can extract points's coordinates without macros. Smiley Wink

  1. Draw a circle on the curve
  2. Use pattern along curve
  3. Create a drawing view and show construction entities
  4. Create a Hole table to "patterned circles"
  5. Copy data from Hole table

Here is a video to this:

 

I hope this helps! Smiley Wink
