Beginner Tutorials and Undo/Redo was created by Keenan
Is there a location for more basic geometry creation tutorials? I found this page , but it is geared more towards the advanced features and post processing. It'd be nice if there was an easier way to create a part than know exactly where each vertex is going to be located before hand so that lines, faces, and then a shape can be made. So far I'm just frustrated with trying to overcome getting some geometry created, since the interface is really different from other applications I have used.

I'd also like to know where the undo/redo feature is located. As I am a beginner at the application, I am making all sorts of changes or mistakes along the way and it would sure be nice to not have to start something completely over again when I really mess something up.

There is little in the way of geometry creation but it sounds like you want to get some 3D geometry quickly. There may be other user contributions on the wiki that cover creation of geometry. Salome is great for meshing (given that is free) but I do not like it for geometry creation. My one attempt at a 'real life' problem was done using geometry created with CATIA.

Im not sure if there is a redo/undo. The 'tree' in the panel on the left in Salome is a sort of history and items can be deleted to undo the last step. I dont know about redo.

Best regards,

I did notice that things could be deleted from the panel along the left, but was definitely hoping that maybe the undo/redo feature was just a setting that was turned off by default someplace.

I hope I am not the only one who is frustrated by the geometry creation method. It feels very clumsy and unintuitive. It leaves me feeling like I'm trying to perform normal tasks without opposable thumbs. That said, everything else I have used so far has seemed well thought out and pretty easy to use.

Maybe it's just me... :dry:

you can find something on the salome web site:

www.salome-platform.org/user-section/sal...y_of_salome-tutorial

By the way, you are right when you say that the geometry module of salome is really difficult to use. Normally the best thing is to model the solid using a cad-package and then export to step format and import into salome.
