Hi

 

Is it possible to use deform part in Arrangement option ?

 

I tried to make one, but could not create the deform part to arrangement specific .

 

Please explain how deform option can be achived in Arrangements 

 

Thanks in advance

It's not possible.  We have several ER's requesting similar functionality.

Consider explaining your context in more detail so that the forum can advise you on possible workarounds.

Thanks Ben . Sure I'll keep this info in mind on next post.

 

The post was intented to get some info on the problem below.

Showing the compressed and non-compressed state of spring assy (like spring position in cycle stand when it is released and made on).

 

I need to present these two assy states. Could anyone suggest a better way on this problem ?

We are on the same page. I tried the same... Smiley Happy

 

Is this the only possibility or do you see any other roads??

Hello,


On your assembly, you probably have a parameter(1) which for arrangement(1) have for value 50 and arrangement(2) 80.


You can create wave link expression for parameter(1). Between your assembly and your spring.


And when you switch beetwen assembly, every spring is updated.

 

But if it's reuse part, it's not the best way.... for demo it's cool !

 

Best regards

Cesare, 

Thanks for this Solution, but for us, it has a hiccup: If we reuse this Part after releasing it, we cannot modify it anymore. The described way only works if you already make Arrangements for all the desired Conditions you want your part to be in before you release the part. Unfortunately, this is not the case for us as the Spring can have billions of different lengths depending on the application. 

 

Does anyone have a Solution for this that works stable? I am close to desperate to get a workaround for this...

 

Best Regards

Franz

Hi

my solution is to pilot the spring compression using the expression of the distance or the measurement.

For example, the spring is created as deformable. In the length value of the deformable part, you put the expression name of eventual measurement or constraints distance.

Thank you...
