Solid Edge development would like to know which tools do you use to draw conic curves?
We would like to know the following –
Please reply here or you may drop me an email at email@example.com with your responses.
the question, which is coming in mind when reading Your post is:
"What will I need such a curve for?"
All Conic Curves in reality are sections of a cone in 3D.
So why should I create it manually as 3D curve?
I do not see a big need, neither immedeately after reading the question nor after thiniking about a minute.
TBH I think there are more issues on the list for solving than having conicle curves, isn't it?
@Rutuja_Mehta I'm excited that you're hear asking for input so I hate to report that I'm with @hawcad on this. I just don't see that I would use it much. I'm trying to think when I would need it, but I understand maybe others will have a need and hope they chime in. I see the ellipse sketch element, but had to open a sketch to check that it was there, I just don't use it much.
Again, that's just based on my limited usage patterns.
I understand your question, but I don't think that this is the good direction. I think we need a "general feature" not special feature to draw a parabola, an other special feature to draw a hyperbola and etc...
The general feature name is Equation driven curve.
All of our competitors has...
Guys, this feature gives more flexibility to customers against parabola, hyperbola drawing features.
@Imics I think your edit broke your link. I like the idea you proposed. Include formulas from a drop down for standard shapes (like conics) and provide the ability to locate the generated sketch relative to other geometry.
