Hello Everyone,

I want to create a 3dpoints on selected face. I tried to select the face but not able to create the 3d points on it. Purpose of this script is to measure the thickness at particular location. if anyone knows the solution please help me

def main():
types = ['FACE']
entity = base.SelectEntitiesList(deck, types)
print('Selected entity ', entity._id)


Thanks and Regards,
Shubham

do you have another point to project on the surface.? Surface is big area. At which point in the surface do you want to create point. Need one more input.

I don't want to project the existing point, but just like 'Weld Spot' function i want to create a points on a face. But i am not able to create the co ordinates of that points, just by clicking on face.


def main():
face = base.GetEntity(base.CurrentDeck(), 'FACE', 63046)
coords = []
coords.append([2688.54, -353.579, 13.3602])
coords.append([2724.17, -331.047, 13.1536])
coords.append([2779.36, -313.861, 12.4984])
coords.append([2833.71, -323.72, 11.4548])
coords.append([2851.94, -338.252, 11.0163])
coords.append([2861.41, -347.123, 10.7709])
ret = base.HotPointsWeldSpot(face, coords, False, True)
print(ret)


Thank you.

Use True for produce3dpoint parameter like below. It is working.

base.HotPointsWeldSpot(face, coords, True, True)


It was clearly mentioned in the help where you copied the above example.
ansa.base.HotPointsWeldSpot(face, coordinates, produce3dpoint, ret_ents)

Thank you for your reply,

now my next concern is how to get the coordinates of projected points on surface, I had tried this but not working. I dont know how to use base.Entity function


def main():

# Selects faces and create points

ent_types = ("FACE")
entities1 = base.PickEntities(deck, ent_types)
print((entities1))

types = ['FACE']
entity = base.SelectEntitiesList(deck, types)
print('Selected entity ', entity._id)
face = base.GetEntity(deck,'FACE',entity._id)
print(face)

all_coordinates = base.PickPointOnSurface(entities1)

print(all_coordinates)
print(type(all_coordinates))


base.HotPointsWeldSpot(face, all_coordinates, True, True)

#Project the points

ent_types = ("FACE")
entities2 = base.PickEntities(deck, ent_types)

projected_points = []
for coordinates in all_coordinates:
projected_points.append(base.HotPointsProject(coor dinates[0],coordinates[1], coordinates[2], entities2))
base.All()
print(projected_points)

collect_point = []
for coordinates2 in projected_points:
collect_point.append(base.Entity(deck,coordinates2 ._id,'HOT POINTs','position'))
print(collect_point)
