63 S5-63 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 CURVE CONSTRUCTION Must use the select menu for picking the curve and point

64 S5-64 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 CREATE / CURVE / MANIFOLD Manifold refers to creating new geometry on (coincident with) existing geometry, e.g. curve on surface from one point to another point Before After Surface

73 S5-73 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 TRIMMED SURFACE CONSTRUCTION (Cont.) When creating a trimmed surface, one must define its edges Chain together curves to form closed loops One outer loop to define the outer boundary As many inner loops as necessary (if any) to define holes/cutouts Define curvature of surface Planar trimmed for a flat surface Surface trimmed requires a parent surface (must be parametric) to define the curvature of the new surface; only one surface permitted For composite trimmed creation must specify all surfaces to be combined

74 S5-74 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 CREATE TRIMMED SURFACE EXAMPLE The Outer Loop List can have only one curve ID, e.g. Curve 5; the curve must close on itself There can be as many inner loops as needed, e.g. Curve 6, 7; only one curve per inner loop Single surface ID in Surface List, e.g. Surface 1.

92 S5-92 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 EDIT SOLID BY REFIT Edit solid three ways Option To TriCubicNet causes a set of cubic parametric solids to be created to represent the original solid Refit parameters u Density, v Density, w Density* Option To TriParametric is similar to To TriCubicNet except a tolerance is used instead of u Density, etc. Option To Parasolid causes a parasolid solid to be created from the original solid Parasolid tool * Density is the number of solids that will be created in the u, v, w direction.

93 S5-93 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 SOLID GEOMETRY BOOLEAN Solids to be combined can be Patran native B-rep, parasolid B-rep solid, and/or parametric Solids could have been created in Patran or imported Boolean operations are Add, Subtract, and Intersect Any combination of solid types results in creating a parasolid B-rep solid Parasolid tool Add B-rep Parametric B-rep (from Add) 1 2 3

95 S5-95 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 DEFINING COORDINATE FRAMES The 3 axes, for each coordinate system, are generically referred to as the 1, 2, 3 axes with the above definitions Rectangular X Y Z Cylindrical R Z Spherical R Z X Y A B C P(X,Y,Z) Z Y X Z R A B C P(R,,Z) R Z R A B C P(R,, ) R

96 S5-96 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 COORDINATE CREATE MethodComment 3PointCreate a coordinate frame by defining an origin, a point along the axis 3 and a point in the 1-3 plane AxisA point on axis i and another on axis j EulerThree consecutive rotations about user defined axes NormalSpecify an origin and a surface

97 S5-97 PAT318, Section 5, March 2005 CREATE COORDINATE ALIGNED WITH SURFACE NORMAL Creates a rectangular coordinate system Origin at a point on a surface or solid face Coordinate frame axis 3 aligned normal to the surface or face Coordinate frame axis 1 aligned with either parametric direction
