What do you want Lew? Full physics contact simulation?
Albie, I only commented because the rack appeared to have straight teeth at the angle the image was taken and would crash with the pinion. But since I am recovering from eye surgery I had to look at it again with my good eye.Does the tooth form need to be accurate or just eye candy?
Hi Nate -- If you go back far enough you will find that I kept asking for not only a "ratio of revolution" Constraint, but also an "initial alignment" Constraint. Without such a "basis" to set things correctly, "relative rotations" will "get out of sync" do to (if you will) "angular accuracy limitations." -- LewWhat do you want Lew?

A search for that "initial alignment" brings only one result...If you go back far enough you will find that I kept asking for not only a "ratio of revolution" Constraint, but also an "initial alignment" Constraint.
My question was more is the tooth detail just for show or will the models need to be good enough for printing/machining?Until we get more definitive Constraint actions, it is merely "eye candy.
Hi Stefan -- My guess is to perform actual traditional Lofting. -- LewBut for my curiosity, for what do you need this?
No worries Nate, anyway thanks very much.@GIOV Sorry, that is beyond my ability. Besides no knowing how to programmatically do it I also have no idea how to mathematically do it.
YesHi Stefan -- My guess is to perform actual traditional Lofting. -- Lew
Lofting & Material standard size Maximization. The best way for now is do this by traditional manner.A sorry from me too. I've played aroud sometime ago to "handle" splines using scripts, it wasn't that much fun as i expected (means i haven't reached a goal...)
But for my curiosity, for what do you need this?
Sorry, not currently possible with Alibre Script or Alibre API. Please request Alibre make more features possible by API.I'd like to request a script to place Hole Label on drawings.
The script would interrogate a drawing view that has the holes and hole callouts. It would read each size hole and label it with a letter, likely starting with the letter A, and place the label near each hole of same size. So all holes of the same size would end up with the same label and the label incrementing through the alphabet, A to B to C, etc.
As a bonus the holes would be listed in a hole table giving their size, letter label and quantity.
Yes,I didt this before but I asking from a direct calculation from the model without doing a extra solids & Solid Cut.Way above my ability, but, what if you get your model and do an extrude cut of everything above your plane and get the centre of gravity for it. I just did a quick test with a cube and the result seemed to give what I was expecting.
That is what I am asking.taking only the outer boundary edge
