Get Euler Angles from .nci file
BernardoFreire posted a topic in Industrial ForumDear all, Is it possible to calculate the Euler Angles (or the rotation matrix - three (or at least two) vectors defining the tool orientation) from a 5-axis .NCI file? I can reach the tool axis (Z vector) but it is not enough to define the complete matrix, I need at least one more vector. Also, is there some information in the .NCI file that tells me if the machine will privilege the rotary or the linear axis? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Bernardo Freire
Solidworks Z to Top?
M. Anderson posted a topic in Industrial ForumI am working on a customer project with Solidworks 2015, (their laptop and all), I have about 800 ~ 900 parts to draw up from some really old “print” prints. I have not used SW in 10+ yrs… so a lot has changed, but it is still SW. Question is: How do you re-orient SW drawing space so Z is up (top plane)? And make it permanent.. So the next time it loads it’s still correct. It’s like Y is currently the top plane (I know it’s always been like that). This drawing stuff sideways is NUTZ! If someone here knows please list it as simple as you can… Like I said it’s been like 10+ years since I used SW. Thanks
