I am trying to find a fast and easy way to display weldments via "caterpillar legs" on a draft. The solution should look something like this ->. I am using ST4, and any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Only good way is to use a shaded drawing view. This will show the caterpillar texture from the part.
Thank you for the fast response, although it was not exactly what i was hoping for since the texture is not as detailed as i hoped, and the shaded view adds texture to the whole assembly whitch i don't want. I didn't have much time to experiment with this and will look further into this option but i'm a bit sceptical it will work the way i want.
Still thank you very much, the answer was helpful.
Indeed, it's all or nothing for shaded views.
If the texture has not enough detail, you can use your own texture.
A (crappy) workaround can be:
Draw an arc, multiply it with Array.
We are using that (crappy) workaround right now, but it's very slow and annoying. Another thing i will try is creating a macro, but that will take a long time and a lot of nerves, if possible at all.
