3D Constraints Challenge: DmDistance3d and Conical Transition

I am experimenting with 3D constraints. I have created an axle from two cylinders, with different diameters, and a cone for the transition. I want to create a DmDistance3d constraint between the circular edge at the top of what is now a conical transition, and the top face of the axle. Somehow this is not possible. The only way to achieve what I want is to introduce an additional 'helper' solid. See the attached file.

I don't like the 'helper' solid and wonder if there is another way to accomplish this.


  • Good news! Creating a DmDistance3d constraint between two concentric circular edges or faces in now possible (BricsCAD V16.2). You can switch between the 'Axes' option (default) and the new 'Centers' option.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
