B-SIM V2.5 Reference - Blow molding simulation
Image distortion using IGES polylines
New B-SIM feature enables image pre-distortion with a precise location of the image represented by its outlines. The image outlines must be represented by lines or polylines and saved as an IGES file. B-SIM reads the IGES file and project the lines and polylines onto the deformed parison/preform. The projected lines/polylines can be pre-distorted just by selecting the first simulation record. Then IGES export generates an IGES file with the distorted/pre-distorted image outlines.
Steps to pre-distort IGES polylines
Open a solved project for post-processing and click on View / Image mode. Click on the icon with tool tip "Project IGES":
Windows File Open dialog appears.
Select the IGES file for projection and click
Open. The image outlines (polylines) are automatically projected.
Windows Save File dialog appears. Specify
a file name and click Save. IGES file will be created.
Polylines will be automatically removed.
