2D Workspace Region Properties "URGENT"

Discussion in 'Using Alibre Design' started by GIOV, Dec 12, 2020.


Is this topic relevant for you?

  1. Yes, because I am professional user of the software and I need these tools for optimise the design.

  2. No, because I don't need these tools in my professional field.

    Thanks for the suggestion.I send an e-mail to him.
    Thanks very much Ralf for the link but I insist that the Region Properties in 2D WorkSpace and Plane section of Part WorkSpace should not be too difficult to implement in AD. The Software will be better for all.

    Like I said, without more info of your process needs there is nothing we can do. With more info a script could probably be made to adjust, test, output, and repeat.

    Hello colleagues,

    i've quickly made a little part with contains a script(not very tidy or optimized)...
    It's not a "ready to work with" script! Nore the results should be used for work!
    It's only to show, that calculating Area Moments of Inertia with AlibreScript is possible...
    Open the part(a tiny part...), launch AlibreScript and start the script.
    The sketches are dimensioned (except the angles of the polygon...not enough sparetime ;-)...) so you can check the results with an online calculator...

    Hi Stefan,
    Thanks for your feeddback!
    The idea is in PartWorkSpace in section View goto toll>measure>face> Area Properties. The same idea in the 2DWorkSpace as Region Properties.

    I have received a support notice that my requirement is on the list of feature enhancements. I hope it is a high priority since AD should be a serious program that supports the engineering study of their customer. This is essential.
    Of course this feature will be in Alibre!

    There have been some serious engineering requests for enhancements to Alibre since v12 (that I'm aware of) that still haven't been fixed or implemented yet, so I wouldn't get your hopes up just yet @GIOV !

    If you are mechanic engineer this feature is "BASIC" for a software that it is said to support this area. so I understand must be a firth priority. Von Mises or Tresca Yield criterion is not a law so need a manual calculus to achieve the correct result to follow rules. Brian Vieira must know that. So for a fast iteration the Part WorkSpace Section View Tool area properties in measure window or 2D Drawing WorkSpace region properties are essential.

    Hi Max,
    Some news regarding to this requirement. It has 1000+ views, so is not irrelevant for many peoples and so important for me.

    I look at all the posts. Mainly I do it to try to learn more, even though most of them ARE irrelevant to me.

    So, this topic is irrelevant for you or not?

    Those 1000+ views are the same people revisiting the post to read the new comments ... most are probably just passing interest, so I wouldn't read much meaningful information oug of the viewing numbers. Probably the 'URGENT' clickbait in the title got more views as well !!

    If a feature is important to you. Speak to Alibre support directly and make a strong case for them to divert their time and resources onto it. A forum isnt a metric that holds any meaning ...unless you try adding a user poll to it !

    Not relevant at all.

    I think you don't understand the important that is the feature for the design iteration. May be is not your case.
    Ok no worry, only I trying to make the software better. I am MD in my field from a prestigious university and I know that is not irrelevant as minimum feature tool of mechanic 3D software. don't need to give a lot of explanations to people who really know the field.

    For the record I think I've read almost every post here since I joined the forums. Maybe 30% are relevant to my needs. But I read to see if I can help someone else or maybe to learn something that may help me in the future.
