Hello, While working in a sub-assembly of a larger assembly, is it possible to add components to the sub-assembly but have them reference features in the main assembly? For example, If the screw and DIN rail pictured below were in a sub-assembly, could I reference the hole that is in main assembly? I'd like for the mounting hardware to reference the mounting holes, that way - if the holes locations move, the screws would move too. Thanks
What about the rail? Is it moving too?
If not, what is the logic? How are you going to control that the screw isn’t falling outside of a slot in the rail?
@cowski1, is this option available in NX 10? I couldn't find it. Maybe I just missed it. Thanks
@mike_fdo, for sake of simplicity for this question I was just wanting to see if this type of option was available. I believe I had this option in a different CAD software, so was stuggling to find a simple option or even a "work around" for NX. Thanks
Yes, position override has been available for a long time. Here is a link to the NX 10 docs:
Right click on the component you want to override, the option should show up in the pop up menu.
Thanks @cowski1, I initially typed "position override" in the command finder, but it got the reply back: "No Matches for: position override". I believe I also checked "position" and "override", but didn't find anything. I continue searching. Thanks
