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

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.

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)

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)
