    Thanks, Nate and Albie. I learn something new, every day!:)

    Weird fillet issue

    Thanks. I never thought that the sequence would fix it. I did get it to work another way but don't know why. I moved the history tree blue line all the way up to the first sketch and extrusion, then moved it back down to the last operation. Then I applied the fillets and incredibly, they worked!

    Weird fillet issue

    Hello, everyone. I had some trouble applying a .02" fillet to one area of edges, but I cannot repeat this operation on the opposite side. If I pick a single corner, a different edge is filleted. If I select the rectangular area, I get an error message that says the target is no longer available...

    Part Sketching annoyance

    Nice!:)

    Assembly coaxial constraint problem (solved)

    I use this feature all the time. It really comes in handy, since at times I don't need all the reference planes to be visible.

    Part Sketching annoyance

    This may not be relevant with Alibre, but back when I used to use Autocad, I would use the rectangular select feature (either left or right, I can't remember) to force a sketched line to change color. I had the same problem that was discussed here but that quick movement of my mouse would tell...

    How do I create a Storage Box Assembly??

    The first time I created a new part or modified an existing part within the assembly, I had assumed that right-clicking in the scene would show an option for going back to the assembly and exiting the part creation/modification scene. It took me a while to find out what you describe above.

    v26 Enhancement List

    IronCAD had both kernels but I'm not sure if it still does.

    v26 Enhancement List

    Good stuff! Would curved text for internal or external extrusion be in V27? I definitely have use for it.

    Section view radius center mark

    Typically, if the fillet is small in relation to the OD, a center mark and location is not needed. It may be possible that large radii like those in my drawing, do not need to have centers shown and dimensioned if the CAM program figures that out when it analyzes the solid model for tool paths...

    How to make a minimal removed section view

    Quick question: If I change the scale of my views so that they are smaller, I can no longer further separate the front and top views. What is needed to be done? Thanks. False alarm: I see that I have to click on either view in drawing explorer.

    Section view radius center mark

    Thanks, David. For the benefit of others, I'm posting your workaround.

    Section view radius center mark

    You are correct in that it is made from revolving a sketch. I'll send it to support. Thanks for looking at it. Dave

    How to make a minimal removed section view

    Yes, that would make searching, quite a bit easier.

    Section view radius center mark

    Hello, Harold. It's for the R18 radius (actually there are two, one upper, one lower). I temporarily drew a center for the upper R18 radius. Thanks. When I right-click on the arc and select "Insert center" it creates a horizontal center line that is in the middle of the entire part shape.

    Section view radius center mark

    I know this baffled me, sometime previously, but clicking on section view and right-clicking on its radius brings up a "center" selection but that appears to assume you need a center line, not a center mark for the radius defined by the arc. Can someone explain the "trick"? I tried the "manage...

    How can I create a curved extrusion of a part face?

    Thanks, Ken. Yes, there is something about the model, since there are no other variables coming into play. The good news is that your version's printed part performed well. I know now that certain tactics of design when 3D printing is required are not ideal. I've had other parts printed by a...

    How can I create a curved extrusion of a part face?

    Thanks, David. I have printed at least 5 Alibre-exported models, so far and every one except the one shown in the photo had turned out well with default normal deviation and surface deviation numbers. Do you know if the Surface deviation default number is in millimeters or inches? Or does it...

    How can I create a curved extrusion of a part face?

    Great! Thanks, Harold. By the way, I was able to export (after 15 minutes of wait time) the STL file from the original but when I printed it, it looked like the attached. So the model was generated but the translation to STL was not quite right. ;) But yes, your tips are much appreciated. I...

    How can I create a curved extrusion of a part face?

    I just finished watching the videos, Harold. Thanks again for spending the time to do them. Since my design time is not consistent, I tend to learn what I need to learn when it is required. But then again, that's the fun part about keeping our mind's sharp - always learn new things. (In addition...
