i want to make deformable part.
where i find help to do that?

 Components Cascade Menu Overview


Define Deformable Part
The Define Deformable Part dialog lets you designate a component as deformable and define the shapes into which it can be deformed.

You must be in the Modeling application to use this dialog. It is available at Tools-> Define Deformable Part.

To allow repositioning of a deformation in coordinate systems other than the absolute coordinate system, you must ensure that you provide sufficient references and direction expressions. For example, we recommend that you create extrusions by extruding a sketch instead of simple part curves, because the defining reference plane can be included only with a sketch. Also, be sure to include expressions that control directions, such as offsets on an extrusion; otherwise, you will not be able to readjust them if they are incorrect in the destination coordination system.

The Define Deformable Part dialog has five pages: Definition, Features, Expressions, References, and Summary. To open a dialog page, click on the box beside its name in the left column.

Common Items
To move to another page, in the left column of the Define Deformable Part dialog, select the box beside the page that you want. Or you can use the Back and Next buttons in the bottom right corner of the dialog.

The images at the top of the dialog, as well as the boxes in its left column, indicate the page of the dialog.

 Definition Page

 Features Page

 Expressions Page

 References Page

 Summary Page

The Finish button at the bottom of the dialog becomes active when you have made enough choices to define the part as deformable. Of course, you do not have to press Finish immediately; you can move back and forth through the dialog pages until you are happy with the definition you have made, and then choose Finish to complete the operation.



RE: deformable part

Hi 290166,

It would be helpful to know what version of UG you are using?

Also what is the type of component you are trying to create as a deformable part IE Sheetmetal (you can unfold & fold these very well and obtain the flat pattern for cutting) or is it something a bit more complex IE a live plastic hinge?

Best Regards
