Is there any way in solid edge that I can use automated material for parts?
Suppose I have a 10 mm plate part. When I will change the plate thcikness to 16mm, the material will be automatically change to 16mm. Generally I have to manually change or create material and assign every time. In this case, there occurs errors several times that I have changed the part thickness but not changed the material. So I need an automated way, like material will be connected with thickness variables. Similarly for frame profiles I want automated way, If i change profile sketch, the materail will be automatically updated.
@Tushar, @hawcad, can you please suggest me?
Solved! Go to Solution.
no there is no direct solution for a part, and to be honest , I think this also doesn't make sense to have so.
The material property is a physical property while the thickness etc. is a geometrical property which does not belong to the material/physical props.
You can have one and the same material in several shapes.
What You are looking for is a different unique proeprty e.g. raw material, which could be selected from a list and with that list to different values are set to the appropriate values.
The physical material with taht material props and the geometrical base proeprty like thickness etc.
But this is a matter of a different approach and a matter of and extra solution by a macro etc.
I would not like to combine those into one single issue.
Since this would result in an metarial tabel with one physicla item and 100s of geometrical raw materials from thatr.
So from my point of view this gets a clear "NO, don't do that!"
Glad that you found a solution. It seems quite innovative!
I do very less modeling but more of coding, so may not be the best person to comment or verify if it works for me.
But nevetheless, you have done a great job !
And anything that works for you - is definitely useful for many.
