I'm trying to access data from 3D solids. I've been working out some rather involved routines to comb through the ACIS data and piece it back together but there must be an easier way. If a face can be identified and assigned a color through a simple click, then surely there is a way to access this information about the solid without exploding it or digging around in an ACIS file. It feels like the kind of information that could be accessed by descending through subentities associated with the solid but unless I'm missing it, that only leads to the ACIS data. I ultimately want to create arrays of points on the faces of solids and I was working down the path of drawing polylines on the faces to set boundaries for the arrays, but for now I'm reluctant to forge much further down the ACIS route since my gut tells me there is an easier way. What am I missing?
it seems that whenever I input .SAT files into my drawing it really slows down AutoCAD. This is especially true whenever I switch views. It appears to be the regen operation. The drawing is only 10 MB. I can work in much larger drawings that are 2D and not have a problem. I've eliminated all other background tasks and processes that are eating memory. Is there some sort of work-around/setting I can adjust to reduce quality of the 3D views in order to speed up the regen process?
Hello everyone it's been a while since I've been on here. I'm having a new problem that popped up recently. I'm trying to import a .SAT file into ACAD 2000. I'm using the ACISIN command. Usually I don't have any problems with this. When I find a .SAT file that is too recent, I use HOOPS 3D Part Viewer v13.15 for ACIS to save down the file. Lately I've been trying to import some Colson caster CAD files from 3dcontent central and I have a problem when I get to the ACISIN portion of my procedure. I get this message "Modeling Operation Error: Missing integer in restore file. Unable to read the ACIS file" The file looks fine in HOOPS. I'm not sure why it's not coming into ACAD. I used to not have this problem but I'm having it a lot lately.
