To Display Curve Reflection
1. Select one or more surfaces, quilts, solid geometry, or facets on which to perform surface analysis.
* Reflection curve analysis for the earlier versions is not supported. You must create a new reflection analyses for any old reflection curve analyses that needs to be edited.
2. Click Analysis > Inspect Geometry > Reflection. The Reflection dialog box opens. Quick is the default analysis type.
The reflection is computed and a shaded plot for the selected surface is displayed in the Creo Parametric graphics window. The result of reflection analysis is visible only in the OpenGL graphics mode.
* To clear the contents of the collector, right-click in the collector and click Remove on the shortcut menu. You can then continue to select new surfaces, quilts, or parts to create a new analysis.
3. Click OK to complete the analysis or Cancel to cancel the analysis. Alternatively, click Repeat to start a new analysis.
4. Optionally, to save the analysis, perform the following steps:
a. Select Saved from the list at the bottom of the Reflection dialog box to save the analysis with the model, and to display and dynamically update the analysis while modeling.
b. If required, rename the analysis in the box adjacent to the list.
5. Optionally, to customize or edit your analysis, perform the following steps:
a. Specify the number of lights in the Lights box. The default value is 8.
b. Adjust the angle of lights in the Angle slider. The default is 90 degrees.
c. Adjust the spacing between the linear source of light in the Spacing box, and the width in the Width box, as required. The default values are 10 and 5, respectively.
d. Update is selected by default. You can see the effects of your selections or changes on the analysis plot as you make them. Clear the Update check box to select or adjust multiple analysis options, and click Preview to view the result of analysis.
* If you edit the definition of one saved type of reflection analysis, the definitions of the other existing saved type of reflection analyses also change.
