Launching V5 / V4
CleanTolerance with the Maximum Gap option
How to activate this option:
Select the Tools>Options... command. The
Options dialog box appears, choose the General > Compatibility
category in the left-hand column.
Click the Saving as V4 Data tab. For more
information about these settings, please refer to
The parameter entered in the Small Edges And
Faces Cleaning frame is used in order to choose a Maximum Gap
that may be generated when a small element (Face or Edge) is cleaned
in V4 model:
In the Small Edges And Faces Cleaning frame, a
first choice can be activated or not.
If it is not checked, the value used will be the V4
tolerance for Curves. This value appears in the grey editor.
If it is checked, it is possible to enter another
tolerance which must be lower than V4 tolerance for Curves and higher
than 0 [tolerance value: .01 for instance (.01 for 100th mm)].
If the value chosen by the customer is
higher than the V4 tolerance for curves, then this parameter will not be
taken into account and the default value will be used.
During the V5/V4 import, when this option is
activated, small elements (Edges, Faces) are cleaned inside this
tolerance (for instance, tolvalue=.01).
The usability of the resulting model is increased, for example if the
V4 model must be reworked, using limit2 or form tool V4 function. We
guarantee that the gaps created between these cleaning actions are
less than this tolerance.
The value of maximum gap must be
positive. If it is not the case, a Warning is displayed until a
positive value is entered.
Click OK to confirm.
- clean small objects,
- better control of V4 topology quality.
