Revolved Extrude Fatal Error
« on: February 12, 2020, 11:19:34 am »
I probably don't properly understand the parameters involved in this but I accepted the defaults for the attached .cb file with a single polyline created from two polylines and an arc - now I receive a fatal error when I attempt a revolved extrude.

In the polyline properties it shows, "Number of Segments = 11", but if you 'double click' the polyline it appears to have just 8
Looking at the points list you can see duplicate points at 89.0, -2.0 and 89.0, -1.0

1. Select the polyline
2. Use menu item, Edit->Polyline->Clean, to remove the duplicate points
3. unselect the polyline then select it again, this will update it's properties

It should now show as having 8 segements and the plugin will work.

Thanks Eddy,
This has I think taught me to presumably clean up polylines whenever I join them - something I had not appreciated from the general documentation.
As you say the plugin then works but I have obviously not done it quite correctly as the orthogonal view I get after creating the surface does not give me the contrast that is shown in the view you captured in extrude2.jpg Here in extrude3.jpg is what I actually see.
Obviously I have done something else wrong too.

In menu item, Tools->Options, ensure that "Display Mode" is set to OpenGL

Thanks very much I had it set to OpenGL until I reinstalled after upgrading Linux
I need to redesign now after Camotics tells me it will take 1.42 days to simulate  :D

The outer gutter is the only part I would consider using a 3D MOP
