Hello everybody, I just started this very day to use CAESES, well it's a nice tool, anyway i haven't managed yet IGES files. My techical background is on a practical side and as my hobby is ships and yachts hull design - far away from my everyday job - So I use mainly a nice program as DelftShip, the issue is that it does'nt provide IGES export files. I also made a cry on: Orthography errors and so on. Some useful tips by anybody? Actually I have quite a lot of projects stored, someone validated by Michelet, but since all the stuff is an hobby I don't want to waste time on pros programs, CAESES appeared a good alternative since I can import my designs. Thank you in advance. Jurgen.
Hi folks please find attached a Feature Definition for a "Bulbous Bow Shape Analysis" and a Feature Definition which can be used in a CurveEngine for creating a MetaSurface. shapeAnalysis_Bulbous_Bow.fdf bulbous_bow_section.fdf [edited 05.10.14 - tangent analysis included] In order to replace a Bulbous-Bow-IGES-Import by a fully parametric MetaSurface you can use this Feature by execute the following steps: Create a Surface Group including all the IGES-surfacesCreate a new Feature Definition and reload the Analysis-Feature, apply and create the Feature by right click on the Feature Definition>Create FeaturePass the Surface Group to the Analysis-Feature and enter (if necessary) start- and end-position in x-direction of the bulbous bowAdditionally give a number of offsets (30-50 should be a good choice)Run the Feature This will create function curves which can be used to create a MetaSurface. The next steps should be: Re-model the function curves by e.g. FSplineCurvesCreate parameters for some values of the new curves, like start/end position, start/end tangent or area Create a CurveEngineCreate a new Feature Definition, reload the Section-Feature and applySelect the Bulbous-Bow-Section-Feature and pass the new function curves to the EngineAdditionally you can set start- end end-tangent valuesCreate a MetaSurface, select the Curve Engine and set the base positions according to the start- and end-position in x-directionNow you will have a single Metasurface, which is parametric and ready for a design study. Cheers Matthias
Hi everyone, I have a hull form in CAESES as a Brep object, which I would like to export as an IGES file. However, the program I need the IGES for has a very specific set of requirements regarding the included IGES entity types and spatial tolerance settings. Is there any way that I can modify these settings for the IGES Export in CAESES? Cheers!
