  1. Ross, Unfortunately we do not have a tool for sine wave generation inside Evolve. However, there is a work around, that although tedious, works. Create a sine wave of any shape using a simple formula in excel Export the co-ordinates to a text file (.txt) Add the total rows as the first line and save the text file again Import this text file into Evolve as a point cloud Create a curve from points using 'Curve from point cloud' tool. In the excel file attached I have used this example: Generate a 1Hz Sine Wave, with ω=2π and Amplitude 1. f = 1 Hz, ω = 2π, therefore, T=1 sec The sine wave or sinusoid in its most basic form is: y(t) = A *sin(ωt+θ) Where: • A = Amplitude • ω=Angular frequency/ Circular frequency=2πf (rad/s) • f=1/T, where T=Period in seconds • θ=phase • t=time (s) To edit the shape, please change the f value to the desired frequency. Hope this helps you in some way. We will definitely be adding some tools to create parabolas, hyperbolas, sine and cosines in the near future. sine.evo sine.txt sine_formula.xlsx
  2. Computers running NVIDIA Optimus technology and Evolve might experience issues with our latest and upcoming releases. To avoid visual artifacts or crashes when running Evolve, it is recommended that you change the 'Preferred graphics processor' setting under Global settings in the NVIDIA control panel from 'Auto-select' to 'High-performance NVIDIA processor' This will avoid using auto switching that has been found to be the primary reason for crashes.
  3. Dear Evolve users, We want to bring to your notice that Evolve 2017.1 will not be supporting native solidWorks 2017 file format (part file) We expect the translators to be updated by the end of the first quarter of 2017. You will still be able to open evolve files (.evo) on solidWorks using our solidWorks plug in. Exchange of data between SolidWorks and Evolve can be done seamlessly using the parasolid (x_t and x_b) formats.
  4. Hi Lanau, This log file is a debug log that has slipped through the cracks.We have disabled it from 2017.1 which is our latest version due to be released shortly.
  5. Simon, Here is a video showing the process of creating profiles spaced at exact distances. I used a NURBS curve since the profile is non planar. If it is planar you can use a straight line instead. align Cplane to NURBS.mp4
  6. There are two icons on the application tool bar - local and global axes. You can switch between these to change the manipulators to follow either local or global axes. Once you make a Cplane active, use the perspective view to create and modify the objects since the perspective view is a true view w.r.t the Cplane. All other views are default ortho views and follow global manipulation axes.
  7. tmac, I checked on the latest release version 2017.7305 and the material are hanging on after the first frame of the animation. Can you please try downloading the new build and use the same file?
  8. Hi, I understand your requirement of creating multiple construction planes offset by some value and sorry this feature is not available in the construction plane tool itself. However, there are ways of to create planes spaced with some distance between them and to align construction planes with these surfaces. It requires some additional steps but it is possible.
  9. We have noticed some inconsistency with brushed materials and animation. Can you please give me the material properties? You can grab a screenshot after selecting the object and paste it here if its easier.
  10. Hi Lunau, Can you please share the file here? It will also help to know which OS you are using and the build number of Evolve. Do you remember aborting the installer midway?
  11. Hi, Welcome to the forum! It is most likely that the source object is no longer hidden. This happens in one of these two ways: You reused one of the source objects(the sweep) from an early stage in a new operation and then deleted that operation - This will show the hidden sweep You manually used ALT+H to 'show' the hidden sweep If its easier to share the model, please do so here and I can help you clean it up.
  12. When you select custom plane option, use the space bar or enter key to bring up a graphic handle. This allows you to graphically manipulate the plane direction and orientation.
  13. Hi, Welcome to the Evolve forum. That model is very impressive. The curve pivot snap has been recorded as a bug. The curve to plane tool uses projection planes internally to create the output objects. You can try projecting the curve on a plane instead. You may have to collapse the history of the projected curve and rebuild it.
  14. Hi Mark, There is some manual work that is inevitable in this use case. What is your main concern here? The manual placement of each alphabet 16.66mm(or whatever the distance)? I tried a few different approaches but the only thing that can be automated is creating a grid of curves that have a particular step size or pitch. I still had to place each alphabet manually either using the Translate tool using snapping or using Align to curve tool.
  15. Aaron, At the moment no, we can only define the location and orientation of the plane using the Translate and rotate tools.
