Running Trail files



1.Open the trail file which you wanted to run in NOTEPAD

2.Remove those lines which caused the Pro/Engineer to exit.

3.Save the file with any name other than 'trail'.Remember the file must have .txt extension.

4.From Pro/E..choose...Utilities --> run train/trail file.



This is very brief description,which limited me from going in to detailed narration.



I suggest you to set one config.pro option..



set_trail_single_step

setting the above said option to 'yes' forces the trail file to halt untill the user hit the Enter key.



I got some thing more regarding this trail files,if required....feel free to mail.

Geometry checks usually happen when one feature is almost aligned with another, but not quite - so it leaves small edges/surfaces.

Example - a new cut intersects a previous cut and leaves tiny edges - these may cause geom checks.

You can avoid them by either aligning features or changing the accuracy of the model (Setup | Accuracy).

There are several types of geom checks, three off the top of my head are small-edge (probably the most common), self-intersecting surfaces and passes close to.



Small edges & passes close to I typically ignore but anything else I'll fix.



Rounds are notorious in generating small-edge geom checks.



Screwing with part accuracy is always dicey - don't do it unless you have to.



design intent is unclear is the message you get when a geom check is created - what the heck these have to do with design intent is beyond me...



PTC party line is to redesign your part to eliminate these - seriously !!!!



Wish they had a geom check for degenerated sketches..
