Override position

Creator

Hi,

 

I have an assembly with 3 components which are constraint Csys to Csys, as I need linked data in the mold-opening dirtection.

 

One the parts are ready I want to make some representations on the assembly (open/closed/in bewtween position) , but the assembly is fully constraint (is the rest position)

 

How can I do this (NX 8) without using the 'exploded view' function ?

 

thanks in advance

Assembly arrangements are one way to accomplish this.

Hi Cowski,

 

I'm aware of arrangement, but so far I always used them with 'changing the constrain( to arrangement specific'

As I worked align Csys to Csys, I'm not able to use it (as far as I know ...)

 

I could change the alignment to an ange constrain which could be set to arrangement sprecific, but I'm not sure the model will always update due to the linked data (which I do not want to break of freeze so far)

 

I would think these is an option to override the position, one all is finished, only as a representation

 

any suggestion ?

Have you used 'ignore constraint' option in assembly arrangements ?
