NX 12 List and Angle issue

Phenom
Phenom

I am trying to drive an angle expression value down an assembly. I use Interpart expressions and link up to the top level assy expression. This works all fine. But I would like to be able to control the angles that can be set. Here I thought I would use a "List" expression type. I can create the list but I am unable to get the "driver" expression which is set an angle to accept the list input. Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong here?Capture.PNG

Hello Ryan,

you have to add a new expression with the formula nth().

With this string you can use the expression "Driver" and the list to select the right value from the list.

But pay attention to the units.

 

Best regards,

Christian

Ryan the name of the list needs to match the driving expression with the _options put on the end. See the image below.

I don't fully understand your answer. Can you provide an example of this?

Well, well. That's an interesting. I'm wondering if that is documented somewhere! If not, it really should be.
Thank you!

There's an acronym (or more correctly, and initialism) for that...

Ken-
You're spot on! I take the responsibility for not hitting the F1 key on the keyboard..but I actually have to read the manual on my Surface Book first because the function keys are shared! I guess I have to hit the "Fn" key first!
