Can you please provide me with help on how to transfer a 3D part model to 2D model?
Here is the command input which was tested on a simple model. After cutting the volumes with the working plane, it selects the keypoints on the z=0 plane. Then it selects the lines that are defined by those keypoints only and then the areas defined by those lines only. The input then inverts the selected set of areas, lines, and keypoints and deletes them. /prep7 ! ! make a simple volume to use for the test ! block,,1,,1,.5,.5 ! ! use these commands on a 3D model to get the positive XY plane only ! wpcsys,,0 csys,0 VSBW,all vdel,all KSEL,S,LOC,Z,0,0 KSEL,R,LOC,X,0,1e6 ! increase 1e6 if your model has large x values LSLK,S,1 ASLL,S,1 asel,inve lsel,inve ksel,inve adel,all ldel,all kdel,all allsel ! !
