Just got BricsCAD Mechanical after having used Inventor for a number of years.
I have a question I have been trying to find answers to, but haven't been able to solve. Undoubtedly this will be a product of how i have modeled everything or my newbyness, but i'm at a loss.
I would like to project 3d geometry to a 2d sketch on a face of another 3d solid in order to extrude some holes (as I would have in inventor), but for the life of me i cant find a way to do this as the 'project geometry' command works the opposite way in BricsCAD (2d to 3d).
Is this possible? or do i adjust the way i work to get around it?
To give an example, I have three beams side by side with bolt holes in them, i have a common flange at the head of a pillar which bolts them together, i have modeled the beams in relation to the structure they are supporting (as components), I want to trace the bolting pattern to the pillar flange (modeled as an entity), but cant seem to find a way to do this. I can work out all the measurements and extrude holes into the flange manually, but I would prefer just to be able to trace them onto the flange from the actual geometry. Any tips?
Many thanks in advance!
