Creating Pro/ENGINEER models to support manufacturing documentation can be done in many ways. Each of these techniques has their own pros and cons. In the case of weldments, there may be many different manufacturing states of the model prior to the final welded and machined structure. The use of inheritance models can aid in the development of these models.... (Show more)(Show less)
One of the more commonly overlooked analysis types is the One-Sided Volume Analysis. This is a great way to leverage the associative properties of Pro/ENGINEER for what may seem like an otherwise obscure task; calculating volume. While the Mass Properties can give you the overall volume of a model, the One-Sided Volume analysis takes things one step further, and provides a more practical analysis result, the usable volume of a container. The following will outline how to quickly setup and make use of this type of analysis feature. (This works best with shelled geometry).... (Show more)(Show less)
