Part Mount Junction

Hi All,

 

When adding a machine to the setup you get the option to "use Assembly Positioning" or "Use Part Mount Junction".

If I use the Part Mount Juction option I'm not able to select anything other than my current workpart.

The selection filter is set to entire assembly.

 

Attached is a video to explain my problem better.

Is there anyone else that gets this behaviour?

It seems to me that this is a bug?

I did not understand you selecting a part with option 'use assembly position' and then change 'part mount junction' option?

 

Did you try choosing 'Part Mount Junction' without selecting anything first?

Thanks for your response.

If I don't select aything that doen't make a difference.

I'm still not able to select anything other than the current workpart.

I believe it refers to the part mount junction in your ISV machine

If you open the machine in machine tool builder you can see where it's located

It will mount the part where that is set-up.

 

I'm not sure if it uses the top level MCS or the WCS of your current part.

The problem is that even entire assembly is selected I'm still not able so select anything other than the workpart, as shown in the video.

 

It seems that the selection options do not work in this dialog.

I do not belive it to be a selectable event. if you choose part mount junction. it will mount your part on the machine.... at that machines part mount junction. the junction is set-up in your ISV machine already.

If you look at 00:15 in the video you can see that I have the option to open a CSYS dialog to define the part mount junction in the setup, the machine will be placed on this junction.

In this dialog I need to define a CSYS, it is in this dialog that I can't select anything alse than the workpart.

 

Why do I have the option to select entire assembly if that's not working?

Or it is a bug and I should be able to select evertything or Siemens should remove the entire assembly option.

As far as I know, you can only select coordinate systems for the part mount junction. Try creating one before you open the dialog.
