I'm just working through the tips and tricks doc from Tim Olson.
Now I need some help on the "How can I copy a feature with the Gripper?" exercise.
As I'm only working since a short period of time with this program, I may have only probs of understanding the technique. Or it is a bug maybe ?

What I've done / tried to do:
"Use the Deep Select tool to select the faces associated with the features you want to copy. Then, hold down a copy key and drag the faces to a new location. Upon release, the copied faces are merged into the body. "

And this not work for me. I'm always getting a ACIS Error "gap cannot be filled" followed by a "gap cannot be filled: "Face Copy_xxxx: Hint: Try suppressing feature: Extrude_xxxx" or "gap cannot be filled: "Face Copy_xxxx: Hint: Try suppressing feature: ACIS solid_xxxx"

I'm using ViaCAD 9.0.0 Build 1137.

Any kind of help would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance


PS. I maybe wrong with this posting under "Tips and Tutorials", if so please bear with me, will make it better next time.

Hi Jason,
your question was the right question and it helped me to think about ...
I was trying to copy a complete face, containing simple holes, of one block to another block.
But I believe I understand now what it is about - I can use this technique to copy, for example, simple holes along the face of just one block.

Thanks & Regards
Mike

>>I was trying to copy a complete face,

Hi Mike
Yup! It will get confused if you select the outside face as embedded feature. I added a note to this tip to better clarify.
