Considering how fussy V5 can be concerning user reps, I'm
surprised that the CATProduct that you posted
worked that well. I think you got away with one.
Please read my previous post on the Do's and Don'ts of building
There are some more rules that I should have listed. In
earlier versions of V5, the name of the sketch determined
whether is was a cutting or non-cutting section of the cutter. I
believe that starting from V5R16, they changed how cutting and
non-cutting sections are identified.
Old Method: Cutting and non-cutting sections were identified
by naming the profile sketches either CUT or NOCUT.
New Method: The cutting and non-cutting sections are
identified with a "String" type parameter. There are four
types. Also note that these parameter names are CASE SENSITIVE.
Collision detection uses these parameters to determine cutting
and non-cutting status of the individual CATParts inside of a
CATProduct. If there is no parameter, CuttingType=CUTTER is
Roger, I strongly urge you to use my seed models. To edit it, go
into the sketch and delete everything except for the very first
