retain automatically in clone assembly

Solution Partner Experimenter Solution Partner Experimenter

Is it possible?

We have this assembly structure:
Assy
AAAA1
AAAA2
BBBB1

BBBB2

We would like to clone the assembly, but there is no need to clon components which are named "BBBBX".

We wouldn't like to set manually the retain setting in the clone menu. On the contrary, we are looking for an atributte which can set to some of the components to mark as "retained". Something like 'Clone_Retained=YES'...

 

 

Thank in advance,

I don’t expect much from Clone command. Basically it’s unable even to identify Master model drawings of a project.

You have to go through a lot of workarounds and manual inputs to get any work done.

Very primitive and limited functionality compared to other software.

Hi @fsh27,

 

The ability to assign an attribute to prevent a part from being cloned was requested in ER 6557212.

I would first get yourself added to the mentioned ER by GTAC.

Until this is implemented, you should be able to use a clone notify callback to set the default clone action.

Sorry, no source code, didn't need it by now.
