Configuration Editor: Solid Analyzation Options

This article provides an overview of the options and settings available on the Solid Analyzation tab of the Configuration Editor (Options) Interface.  For a complete list of available tabs and options visit  Overview: Configuration Editor (Options) Interface .

The Solid Analyzation tab contains settings that determine the procedure for analyzing a 3D solid model to convert it into a Microvellum product.


Material Thickness

Minimum and maximum thickness used to determine if a 3D model's thickness is within the acceptable range for analyzation. 


Drill Hole Diameters

Minimum and Maximum drill hole diameter used to determine if a 3D solid with drill holes is within the acceptable range for analyzation.


Pocket Penetrating Cutouts

If a cutout machining sequence falls within the specified area, then the machining will use a pocket-machining token. Otherwise, machining uses a cutout machine token.


Part Size

Minimum and Maximum part length used to determine if a 3D solid with drill holes is within the acceptable range for analyzation.


Nonplanar Parts (Curved-Bent)

Part oversize adjustment for curved and bent parts.


Part Naming and Material

Determines the naming conventions for parts that the Solid Model Analyzer successfully analyzed.


Exception Part Color

Visual indicator for parts that did not successfully pass through the Solid Model Analyzer. The 3D representation of the part is set to the selected color upon analysis results if part analyzation is unsuccessful.


Miters

Determines whether miters are "draw only" or "draw and machine."


Tool Selection

A visual reminder of where to set the tool preferences for solids machining.
