Title: vehicle swept paths
Post by: Steve b183 on September 07, 2018, 09:46:08 AM
hi lars

just been using the swept path tool and its just stopped plotting the vehicle envelope ?

was fine yesterday, in fact the first one I did today was ok ....ie creating the blocks for the wheel paths, vehicles and the envelope

now just plotting the vehicle and the wheel paths ? ?...haven't changed anything

any ideas what could cause that ?

Could it be a locked layer? Test in a brand new DWG

lars
it wasn't a locked layer at all....rather I'd unticked the check box for plotting the envelope !

but while your on, how do you define the "sweep" and the "envelope"

Swept Path is outermost points of wheels and vehicle as polylines. Vehicle swept envelope is the outermost area of the swept vehicle body
