Re: Problem compiling C# Surface

Hi Andy
Sorry. There was a crack in our procedures. Please get todays update. It also has a fix for a bug in IBRepBuilder_DG
Staff-ups do happen. I recommend keeping downloads for some time to be able to go back.
Thank you for reporting

Re: Indentify an extrusion

Hello Felix I assume you mean linear extrusion? Yes it is doable with DG Kernel and is not that complicated. There is some coding to do. It is not very common functionality so we do not have a ready-to-use algorithm, but again, it is not that hard. I would suggest creating a simplest test case (a bo...

Re: Setting general orientation on object

Hello Elph What you need is to get IFrame* from the entity and define it in such a way that it is an image of standard(=global) frame under your transform. Assuming the matrix is orthogonal (determinant is 1.0) and is 3x3, taking columns and copying them as axes to the frame should do the trick. If ...

Re: Contact movement

Hi Gab This is an interesting project. We do not have a high level solution, but we have tools to implement it in your application. What I think would be involved there is: - Collision detection (Collision Path, Collision and Metrics samples) - Obtaining surface points with surface normal (Collision...

Re: Shortest path

Hi Eric
Not really. Those curves are called geodesics. It is a different algorithm.
For convex case two notions coincide as ESP would always lie on the surface.

Re: DIStudio.exe

Hi No its not a bug. We have added it recently to get debugger working for .mdg for ourselves mostly and for some advanced users. Basics like import/export, Model Explorer and debugger are working, but we do not have time to finish it properly and it was not promised in 6.0. So it is "as it is&...

Re: Reverse engineering surface of revolution

To make a single object SOR you would need to use KC interface: - Query IStdShape from IModel_DG or IModel. - Call IStdShape.Cylinder(double baseRadius, double topRadius, double height, ISection** cylinder), which will return ISection* cylinder - Query cylinder > IStrip > IStripTopol - Use IStripTop...

Re: Reverse engineering surface of revolution

The simplest way is to create a new cylinder using IStdShape_DG.Cylinder() http://www.dynoinsight.com/Help/V6_0/Interface/Model/Entity/IStdShape_DG.aspx#Cylinder for each section separately. It is oriented correctly by default. You need to add the new objects to the model to have it in the scene: IM...

Re: Reverse engineering surface of revolution

This should be simple The main thing is to obtain the diameters and lengths of each section. - List all vertices in the mesh. See Morph sample for an example - Convert them to pairs (z, d) = (z, distance to z axis). All these points will define profile of the target SOR - determine max d in the set....
