Solid Edge V20 Convert Surface to Solid

I have a simple square to circle surface created but can't figure out how to make it a solid. Please advise

I gave up my maintenance contract years ago :)


RE: Solid Edge V20 Convert Surface to Solid

Got it...used Lofted Protrusion.....

RE: Solid Edge V20 Convert Surface to Solid

That's too bad your not on maintenance anymore. ST7 is awesome. Also, not sure if you are aware, but the old forums that were for maintenance paying customers are no more. The new Community site doesn't require you to be on maintenance to participate.

Have you checked out the Solid Edge Community site?

RE: Solid Edge V20 Convert Surface to Solid

Thanks for input
Please provide link to new community...are there still users of V20?

Thanks in advance

RE: Solid Edge V20 Convert Surface to Solid

Thanks....saw that a bit later...went to forum, asked same question, but so far no solution where tutorial text launches as it used to......

RE: Solid Edge V20 Convert Surface to Solid

Old version of SE on Windows 7 or some such?

To get the tutorials working here is an extract from our internal instructions:

Quote (Kenat Employer Instructions)

For 64bit installs it is necessary to replace a dll used for tutorials and possibly some other
functions. See instructions from ***.
• Open up the command prompt window you need to do this as administrator by typing “cmd” in
the start box, but don’t hit enter. Right-click on the “cmd” that will appear under programs and
select “Run as administrator”.
• Copy 64bit HHactiveX.dll file somewhere onto your PC, for example in the folder
• Open a command window by typing cmd in the start
• Unregister the existing hhactivex.dll by regsvr32 –u hhactivex.dll
• Register the 64 bit version by: regsvr32 c:\hhactiveX\64bit\hhactivex.dll

You should be able to find the 64 bit version of teh DLL with some web searching.
