Determining interference of solids

You can create a composite three-dimensional solid from the interference, or common volume, of two or more solids. You select the solids in sets. If you define a single set, progeCAD checks all the solids in the set against one another. If you define two selection sets, progeCAD checks the solids in the first set against those in the second.

To determine interference of solids

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Interfere.
    • On the Solids toolbar, click the Interfere tool ().
    • Type interfere and then press Enter.
  2. Select the first solid set.
  3. Select the second solid set.
  4. If you want to create new solids, type y and then press Enter. If not, type n and then press Enter.
  5. If you want to highlight pairs of interfering solids, type y and then press Enter. If not, type n and then press Enter.



Select the entities to check for interference.

The resulting solid with a common volume of the selected solids.
