Expression keeps disapearing

Experimenter
Experimenter

I have been working with string and logic expressions. The string expression changes text and a value, depending on the length. The text is an extruded cut into the model.  The logic expression I am having a problem with is used as a value for P5. I set P5 = to the variable name of "printext".  I have created "printext" as a length and a constant, neither works more than once. "objlen" is the controlling variable. I can change it once and "printext" works. Then the value for P5 returns to a number, and doesn't work correctly after that. I have attached a jpeg file of the expressions. I am having trouble attaching the prt file. If someone is interested please notify me and I will try to email it.

ZIP your part file, then you can attach it.

A free (speech and beer) option to do this is 7 zip

Interesting...

 

The Text(3) feature that controls the Length expression (p5) does not appear to be correctly storing the expression formula here.

 

I would suggest submitting an IR for this against the Text feature, specifically.  Development can then look at whether they think this is a PR or an ER.  I would lean toward a PR, personally.  :-)

 

Good catch!  Thanks!

I sent the file to Siemens as an "IR". They are presently working on the problem.

HI Taylor Anderson

I was wondering if you have heard anything about my IR 9054677 ?  I don't know how to check with GTAC about it.

Thanks

Steve
