With Creo 5.0, PTC enhanced the ability to apply drafts to design models containing rounds and chamfers.
Select surfaces as references in the Draft surfaces collector of the draft feature. Rounds and chamfers are automatically detected and highlighted in a different color. Rounds and chamfers are then handled as they are in the Creo Parametric Flexible Modeling environment
If the geometry selection contains inlying rounds, you can control their inclusion or exclusion from the draft operation. Exclude inlying rounds, and they appear in a green color and are treated as rounds.
This enhancement supports round and chamfer types that are currently supported within Creo Parametric Flexible Modeling.
Related Config options for Draft
- draft_tan_propagation_default—Determines if draft is automatically propagated along tangent surfaces. Values are yes or no. The default is yes
- draft_preserve_inlying_rounds—Determines if inlying round and chamfer surfaces are preserved and not to be drafted. Values are yes or no. The default is no.
