Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

Hi Kay, > As to solids of non-standard form: my question actually pertains to the case, > that in the simplest variant one has a closed curve and generates a solid by > moving this curve along an axis perpendicular to it (like getting a cylinder out > of a circle, just with a more complicated curve instead of the circle, e.g., a > polynomial in the x-y-plane with a certain y-offset, and translating it along > the z-axis). although the framework for defining curves exists in the current BREPS module, the ability of defining BREP solids from surfaces generated by convolution/revolution or extrusion is not yet implemented; this also explains the lack of documentation... It is something we plan to develop in future but we currently do not have resources assigned for it, sorry. Cheers, Gabriele
