ST 8 keypoint curve

In ST 7 the length of a keypoint curve could be fixed. In ST 8 is it possible to set a minimum radius for the curve ?

The standard keypoint curve does not support minimum radius. This IS suppored by the Wire Harness optional Solid Edge module.

That would make a great enhancement request, though!

I would love to see this added to XpresRoute. We model a lot of hydraulic flex hoses and a minimum radius is critical.

We are also using the keypoint curve to model hydraulic hoses.

The hose as a part file is created in the assembly using inter part copy of the hose fitting faces. This gives us the end points and the hose is shaped as required. The fittings are suppressed in the occurrance properties and the hose is defined by a common parts drawing.

The hose minimum radius is available in NX so it should be easy to add this feature to SE.
