In this video, learn how to verify that your surfaces and curves are built cleanly by using the Connect Checker.
- [Instructor] Once we've created surfaces,…we need to analyze the surfaces and/or curves…are within a specific tolerance.…The tool that I'm going to use…is what's called Connect Checker.…Come down here, select my icon.…To get this part, you can either…use a file downloaded in your references…or hit F1 on the keyboard and…open up the document that you see listed here.…Now, let's get to work.…The way this works is, you specify,…in this case, two, three, four, 10 surfaces.…Make this surface number one.…
I'm going to hold the Control key down, pick surface number two…and its going to give me a gauge measuring,…in this case, what's called G0.…G0 is a continuity type, indicating that two elements touch.…As you can see, at this end point and at this end point…the surfaces actually touch.…As we get further away, toward the center,…I have a deviation.…Now, if I look at the bottom of this menu,…I have max info.…At this point, this is our greatest point of deviation,…It's 1.76 millimeters away.…
So at the end everything is good.…
