Adjustable part ind assembly pattern

Creator

Hi All

 

Long time I did not post and lots of new stuff for ST10 (I get rusty :-) ) .

 

Please refer to exiting post if they exist

 

I'm looking at info regarding adjustable parts/assembly in assembly pattern.

 

Ex1 i have a part, that I pattern at the assembly level and I wanted to have that part adjust in height along a pattern ( or adjust in many ways for more complexe scenario).

 

Ex2 I have a assembly with three parts and I wanted to have the parts in that assembly that adjust to its surrounding as I pattern the assembly.

Adjustable parts use variables. I suppose you could tie those variables to measurement variables along the path. You would need a unique adjustable variable for each instance of the part. Adjustable assemblies use mates so maybe the mate distance values could be driven the same way. Not sure.

Hi Bruce

 

Thanks for the suggestion but not quite what I was looking for..

 

 

I am now explore....

 

  1. Copying the first part to a new location
  2. Replace by a copy ( which should give ne two seperate parts)
  3. Update the inter-part copy (which should in theory give me the same result as if i had create an new part in place)
