  1. Hey, There is a video available with regard to Propeller Design. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpyZ3vTGct8&list=UU0GfNDj5JIoBWR-YUFQ_xMA The video shows how to create a parametric 2D profile definition in a few steps. This profile defintion will be connected to the blade object. The parametric profile is created with two Fsplines and an offset curve with some parameters which can be used in a variation or an optimization. Best Regards Karsten
  2. Hey, If you have been to our Users Meeting 2013 in Berlin in the mid of October you have seen my presentation: Intersecting surface in parametric models: Subsurface modeling. The presentation will be available on our website within the next days. http://www.friendship-systems.com/downloads/presentations This is the live demo project file. It is sorted with multiple numbered scopes. This sorting is helping you to understand the order of creation and makes it easier to reuse it in your own projects. Subsurface: It is the trimming/cutting functionality in CAESES-FFW.Creates a new surface on the basis of an existing parent surface.CAESES-FFW provides some Feature Definitions which will help you creating subsurfaces. Here you can find them: Menu -> Features -> Surfaces -> subsurface or in the CAD Menu next to the object Sub Surface If you have any questions to subsurface modeling please don't hesitate to post them here or contact me. Best regards Karsten UM2013_SubsurfaceModeling.fdb
  3. Hey, you can add a time stamp to the console messages. Sometime it is easier to identify when the message appeared. To add the time stamp right-click on the console widget and select 'Add Time Stamp'. Best Regards Karsten
  4. Hey, surfaces are defined by the parameters U and V the minimum is 0 and the maximum 1. 0 is equal to the starting of the surface and 1 is equal to the ending of the surface. There are four different ways showing the U-V-Orientation of a surface in CAESES/FFW. highlight a surface and in the ObjectEditor in the categorie Display Options click on this button . right-click the surface object in the ObjectTree and select 'Show U-V-Orientation' right-click the surface in the 3DViewer and select 'Show U-V-Orientation' highlight the surface and type this command in the Console: mycurve.showOrigin(1) to show the orientation and mycurve.showOrigin(0) for not showing the orientationBest Regards, Karsten
  5. Hey, I' ve created two feature definitions for importing and exporting of point data. Import: The file is read line by line. To create the point as objects you have to create the feature defintion via execute Defintion (right click). The point data in the csv or txt file has to be separated by white space or comma by default. You will find attached the project, the feature definitions and two example files as a zip file. Best regards Karsten ImportPointData.fdf writeCsv.fdb exampleFiles.zip ReadAndWriteFiles.fdb
  6. Hey, I think nearly everbody has heard about or seen an Archimedes screw. For those of you how haven't heard about it you can find more details here: https://en.wikipedia...edes'_screw I've created a small model of an archimedes screw. The Archimedes screw is created with a genericcurve for the spiral, a couple of lines and two sorts of surfaces. The model gives you the ability to change the length, outerradius, period and innerradius of the spiral and furthermore the outerthickness of the outercontour. Feel free to play around with it and try your own screws or other amazing spiral objects. Regards Karsten ArchimedesScrew.fdb
