Hello all! I have a model in Spaceclaim that I am trying to assess in Mechanical (18.2). When I import from Spaceclaim, I cannot figure out how to separate my bodies into multiple parts. Each time it imports all bodies get lumped under the same part Mechanical's tree. I can see in spaceclaim the structure tree has the same naming as my parts in Mechanical so I'm sure this separation of bodies needs to occur in Spaceclaim, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to assign a body to a separate part.
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
With all of the hype around 3D printing, it can be easy to get lost in fascinating, intricate metal parts made with additive manufacturing. These parts, while impressive, are probably dissimilar from many of the parts you currently produce or use. So why invest in metal additive manufacturing? Download Now
