Working with imported points in design modular

Hi,

I have inserted around 100 randomly generated points in design modular by using point option from the "create" menu. After that around every point, I want to create a circle of a definite radius in 2D/ sphere in case of 3D analysis.

But I am unable to create circles over the imported point. In the sketch, it does not select the points while creating the circle.

 

Can someone help me out here!

Thanks

Om

For the 3D case, in DesignModeler, there is a Sphere primative.  You can set the Sphere details for Origin Definition to Selection, then you can pick a point your created.

Thanks for replying peter!

As I get to select only one point at a time to create the sphere, and I have to deal with 100s of points. Is there a fast approach which I can follow?

Learn the scripting language, then you can read the points from a file and create all the spheres. Do you have SpaceClaim?  You might want to start with that one. I haven't learned either one yet.

Here is someone who has done it.

Thanks for sharing.

I think I can work with this.

Appreciate your help.

Hey!

I have written a code for generating random triangles in a 2D box. This will directly generate a  .txt file which user can copy paste in SpaceClaim's script to generate the geometry.
