Lets say I import a solid model into Esprit 2008. Is there a tool that I can use to analyze the solid radius's so I can determine what size cutter I'm going to need to use? Mastercam has Analyze Entity and Analyze Dynamic which quickly allows me to figure out what size radius's the part model has. What is the best way to do this in Esprit 2008? Maybe the only way is to smash the solid and then pick the wireframe arcs and see what it says in the Property Manager?

If you select the solid model, you will see "Minimum Radius | Click to Calculate" in the Property Browser. Click on "Click to Calculate" and the minimum radius will be displayed along with an arrow pointing out from the radius. If yo need to do more, I would import the wireframe when you open the solid model and select each the arcs to find the radius. No need to Smash if you import the wireframe with the solid.
