adjoining parts procedure


How is it possible to place individual parts, each having a hole in it, (their top
views only, for example) on a common shaft in order to define the parameters needed
for the shaft?
Think of a shiskebob at a barbeque.
Thanks

Re: adjoining parts procedure

Since you are talking 2D, you would be looking at using Blocks. Make a
block of your parts, and then place those blocks on top of your shaft. Use
the Library tab on Edgebar to access and place your blocks.

Re: adjoining parts procedure

Ralph,
Blocks would be your best answer. Solid Edge blocks have the ability to
store multiple views in a single block. These would be multiple sets of 2D
geometry that can have different names such as top, front, etc. You can also
create views in a single block for different states such as the open and
close state of a switch. When you drop in the block it will ask you which
view to place.
To find more information on blocks, click on Help - Solid Edge 2D Drafting
Help. Click on the 'index' tab in the help dialog. Key in 'block' in the
keyin field. you will see a list of topics describing blocks.
