Check.jpg NEW: Import SolidWorks 3DSketch Into VTube

VTube can now import tubes from SolidWorks.

This means that the loop is closed between VTube and SolidWorks. VTube can build parametrically constrained tubes in SolidWorks as well as import parametric tubes.

How it Works

1 - Draw the tube centerline in 3DSketch. Put fillets at the intersections.

It does not matter to VTube if there are intersection points in the sketch, or no intersections with just connections to arc ends.

If you need to, it is ok to draw tubes with contiguous arcs (where the arcs touch each other without straights).

VTube can also handle importing 180 degree bends.

2 - While SolidWorks is in 3DSketch mode, switch to VTube then import the 3DSketch.

Before importing the sketch, you can enter a diameter and wall thickness in VTube's import menu.

Check.jpg NEW: Laservision CSV File Import

VTube can now import Laservision CSV files.

These files contain the part number, comment, linear unit setting, XYZ coordinates, bend radii, diameter, and default tolerance.

How it Works

1 - Press the Laservision CSV Import button.

2 - Choose the CSV file, and press Open.
