(continued...) A set of query rules can be saved for reuse and the returned results can be used in any operation that requires a selection set such as to show, hide or activate a set of parts.
While dragging underconstrained parts within their remaining degrees of freedom, collisions are dynamically highlighted on screen and audibly.
Drag through animations can be recorded for later playback.
The Simply Motion environment and interference checking command include Find First Contact and Find Minimum Clearance options.
Parts grounded in the assembly are automatically grounded in Simply Motion although parts can be subsequently toggled between grounded and moving parts if required.
Part enhancements include fillet transition around sharp corners to give a true bullnose cutter result and staggered split lines and draft for moulded or cast parts based on Parasolid functionality.
Reference planes can be defined using 3 points and the automotive supply chain is further supported with the ability to define co-ordinate systems relative and associative to model geometry.
Linear, radius and angular dimensions can now be added to tube path segments in the XpresRoute tubing design add-on module.
A full weld environment based on the STREAM technology allows weld features to be created using process specific commands.
These include pre-weld preparation features, weld beads and post weld machining operations.
