To Define a Stop Case Transition
This topic is a continuation of the To Define a Chamfer Transition topic. If you did not follow the procedure in that topic, please refer to it under Related Links.
1. If you want to cap the gaps between the active transition and part geometry by creating end surfaces, click the Capped check box located on the Edge Chamfer tab. Notice that this check box is available only if you use the Surface or New quilt attachment type (see About Chamfer Attachment Types). This check box is cleared by default.
Side surfaces must exist in order to extend and use them as capping surfaces. If not, the chamfer piece cannot be capped.
This check box caps only the gaps of the active transition while the Create end surfaces check box located on the Options tab caps all chamfer piece ends for the entire chamfer feature. The Edge Chamfer tab check box overrides the Options tab check box. This enables you to cap the gaps of the active transition even if you decide not to cap all of the chamfer piece ends for the chamfer feature.
You cannot cap chamfers between a solid surface and a quilt surface.
2. At this point, the transition is defined. Do one of the following:
Define another transition.
Click to return to Set mode and continue working with chamfer sets.
* You can also use Back to sets from the shortcut menu.
Click to save your changes, create the chamfer, and close the Chamfer tool.
* To restore the default transition, select Default from the Transition Type box on the Edge Chamfer tab, or from the shortcut menu. The system does not display default transition types on the Transitions list.
Do not use Delete transition from the shortcut menu or use the DEL key to remove a transition type from the Transitions list. If you do use it, you can do one of the following to restore the default transition type: Press CTRL+Z to undo the selection (or Undo > Undo: setting), switch to Set mode, or close the Chamfer tool.
You can also use Capped from the shortcut menu to cap the gaps of the active transition.
To preview various transitions before selecting one, simply place your cursor over each transition type in the Transition Type box. The corresponding transition geometry is highlighted in the graphics window.
You can always select Default from the Transition Type box, or from the shortcut menu enabling the system to determine the transition type for the chamfer. Notice that the transition type is in parentheses.
