I am consistently hampered by one issue or another in my installation : it is HP laptop Spectre, 64bit version
I do not know if this has to do with machine, at least tech support did not think so.
Now that I have resolved the issue of profile error( not closed) by redrawing it, I did a simple extrusion of the profile. When I want to assemble it in 3D, I get an error: " see attached screen shot
so, then it is a matter of not having "compound profile " tool.
How do I get that patched in my installation? Or is there a need to reinstall with some way of ensuring all tools get in or is it possible that I just have not been able to find it? I do see "update compound profile" tool on the right tool palette- & it does nothing.
All my work stops here.
After this is resolved, I have to assemble as a stack 11 of such objects one on top another. A long way to go!
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Just select the 3D objects you wish to assemble and Explode them. This breaks the association between the objects and their profiles, and the Assemble tools will then work properly.
"Use compound profile" is one of the icons on the Inspector Bar; it should appear when you activate Simple Extrude or any of the 3D tools that operate on Profiles.
