NX Experts, Hoping you all can help out a NX Newbie...
I want to drive a component of a sub assy from the next higher level assy.
I have looked into Arrangements and Deformable parts but I'm hoping this is much simpler than these methods.
The typical Pneu Cylinder is a perfect example:
Option 1.) If the stroke length is the "driving" factor I agree that arrangements is the route to take...
Option 2.) If the stroke length is irrelevant, such as if the Cylinder is being used as a damper, the stroke is "Driven" from other components
I'm looking for a solution for Option #2. I have a simple 2 part sub assy: Cylinder Body and Rod. I Constrained the Axial relation of the rod to the body and set a parallel relation to limit rotation... so the only DOF left is stroke lenght... I don't want to set this length but allow it to be "Driven" from upper level assy constraints...?
Is this possible... How do i tell NX to drive under-constrained sub relations from the active assy.
I have found the option within Arrangements to "ignore all constraints" but can not seem to get this to work either...
