Constraint missing when frame section changed

Valued Contributor

Hello All,

 

Suppose I have a frame with SHS-40x4mm section. When I changed the frame with SHS-40x2.5mm section, then all constraints of parts and others related to that frame missed their constraints. But as only the frame thickness is larger, why they are missing their constraints (because that not affects any physical change of the assembly)? Is there any solution to that?

 

Hello @Tushar, @hawcad, can you please suggest me?

 

Regards,

Aslam

Hi there @aslam,

 

Unless you are editing the parent profile to change the thickness, and not renaming , etc.....then exchanging the profile for another, will remove any relations placed on the previous frame elements, even though they appear to be the same, they are indeed, different.

All I can suggest, is plan your relationships very carefully, when using frame....as they are a bit fragile, when changes of this type are required.

Hi @aslam

 

Are you using Frame environment to create your frame weldments/ assembly?

Hello @arekkul,

Thank you for your query.

Yes we use frame environment to create frames.
We have our required frame section part files in default Frames folder.
When we want to change section profile, we choose frame section part file from 'Edit Cross Section' option of frame.

Annoying that even just changing the frame path can result in lost relationships.

It appears to me that any modification to the frame results in new faces being generated - thus relationships are lost.

@aslam to be honest not sure what you are expecting from me in regards to this.  It appears that @SeanCresswell already more than adequately covered this with his response but if it makes you feel better, I fully concur with Sean's statement :-)

P.S.  Master ER 7521696 -- replace profile with same shape and keep relationships valid.
