SPLIT LINE This function allows you to produce the split curve passing through the points having a normal vector of zero degrees to the work plane. The curve is produced and imprinted to produce an edge(s) on the solid. This function will also produce the split line on the edges of the solid. 2. ISOCLINE CURVE This function produces the isocline curves to an angle and a tolerance set by the user. An isocline curve produced at zero degrees will produce a result similar to that of the Split Line function. 3. IMPRINT ELEMENTS ONTO BODY This function imprints wireframe geometry on to the selected solid. The imprinted edges are then treated as Split Line edges. This command is very useful when you need to add some curves manually, to achieve the desired split line. 4. SPLIT LINE ONTO FACES This function will imprint a split line only onto the selected face(s) of a body. The resulting edges are managed as Split Line edges, and therefore visible in the split line tree. This command allows the user to create a split line on specific faces of a solid, avoiding the calculation on the complete body. Vcamtech Co., Ltd 17

VISI Modelling – Draft Analysis 5. ISOCLINE CURVES ONTO FACES This function will imprint isocline curves only onto the selected face(s) of a body using a user definable angle. The edges produced are managed as Split Line edges, and therefore visible in the split line tree. 6. IMPRINT ELEMENTS ONTO FACES This function will imprint wireframe elements only onto the selected face(s) of a body. The edges produced are managed as Split Line edges, and therefore visible in the split line tree. 7. IMPRINT SHADOW This function will produce the silhouette edges on the body calculated from a selected direction (e.g.X,Y,Z, or by element). The silhouette produced corresponds to the outer visible boundary of the body from the defined viewpoint (similar to the result produced by a plan view of the solid in the Plot View). The imprinted edges are managed as Split Line edges, and therefore visible in the split line tree. This function is very powerful because if the solid does not contain undercuts, the resultant silhouette curve will produce the ideal curve for the splitting of the component. Note that this function may generate some unnecessary edges, especially in cases where a part has some undercuts. For this reason it is possible to refine the results generated by the Imprint shadows with the Search Silhouette function. 8. SEARCH SILHOUETTE This command can be used to calculate the split line as a first operation, but it requires that the solid already has edges corresponding to the required split line. In this case the edges are identified and managed as split line edges. Therefore if the split line edges do not lie exactly on the edge of a face it is not recognised as a split line edge. This function is generally used to refine the results obtained from the other split line functions. When analysing all the edges of a solid, this function keeps only the edges that belong to the silhouette curve and will delete all the others. This is often very useful as the Imprint Shadow function may create some unnecessary or redundant edges. By using the Search Silhouette all the edges that do not belong to the silhouette curve are deleted from the body. 9. EDIT Using the edit function it is possible to add or remove edges from the split line tree. Any new edge selected will be treated as a split line edge and any existing split line edge selected will be removed them from the tree list. Using this function it is possible to manually remove any redundant edges. Vcamtech Co., Ltd 18
