Finding a radius smaller than x.xx

Finding a radius smaller than x.xx

Finding a radius smaller than x.xx

Is their a way in UG NX2 to find a radius smaller than X.XX in the modeling side.



RE: Finding a radius smaller than x.xx

Analysis -> Face -> Radius

Set Radius Type to Minimum; Display Type to Fringe.  Select your entire part & set your Display Surface Resolution then Apply.  Click Reset Data Range & use the sliders to get the Middle value as close as possible to your minimum radius value.  I believe sliding them all the way to the left will show the minimum radius values.  Use the scale that appears in the graphics window.

Keep in mind, this is an analysis & doesn't always give exact results.

Another method that may work, but probably not as well as the last mentioned, is to do analysis>minimum radius, and select all the faces in question. It will show you the smallest radius face, but not all the faces of smaller radius. So if you are changing these face radius' you could do this one by one. Tedius and probably not worth it, but another option.
