  1. It's the corners that give you the look. IRL, I don't think twisting a round rod will give you the appearance you want. I imagine that in your model and in fabrication you'll have to transition from the rectangle to the circle. IRL, the welds can be ground down to make the transition appear seamless. Virtually, I would add a subdivision element to make the transition, of to make the entire piece. That's appreciably more complex modeling.


  2. Use the Twist option in the Deform Tool. You'll need three extrudes of the square rod. Twist one, and Use Model>Add Solids to put the three together. It might be possible to use one extrude and just twist the one area, but I'd have to check that functionality.

  3. If I correctly understand, you'll likely need the objects to be symbols. You'll need to create a data record for the object and include the parts and costs. Then you can create a report based on the data record and include on the sheet. You may need to recalculate the report to get updated information.


  4. I am attempting to create a number of Linear Animations. I'm seeing an odd cropping issue between saved views and the overall compositions. What I see in the animations has been cropped down from the saved views. Hoping this isn't a bug, but user error.


  5. Well, I  no longer print from the DL, just from the SL. You're right you have to do this twice, UNLESS you activate the Classes in the SLVPs when you create the classes. This assumes you've named the SLVPs well when you created them (that for me is one of those do as I say, not as I do things).

     

    My argument might be that if you tae the time to set uptake classes in the SLs, you will save time when there are changes.
