API for Checking Duplicate Entities in Connectors

Siemens Phenom Siemens Phenom
Siemens Phenom

In some cases, a duplicate entity may be assigned to both the Master/Target and Slave/Source Connection Regions for a Connector.  In other cases, the same ID of the Connections Regions assigned to the Connector has been assigned.


The attached API script (and test case model) was developed to generate Groups of the Connection Regions entities, including expanded mesh entities then creates a Boolean, In All Group if the duplicate entities.  It will also list out a summary of the status of duplicate entities in the Messages pane.

This script will be expanded or a seperate script will be developed to check the continuity of tangencies in a Connection Regions in the future.

Dear Chip,

Very good API, good job!!. I tested in a FEMAP model with more 1129 regions and the result was 100% correct, but took a lot of time, around one hour of processing ... but nice API, I have included under my favourites USER TOOLS APIs, congratulations!.
