Draft (Template Locking Views)

Hi,

 

We have templates setup, so we go in the assembly change the size and update the draft, after updating the draft it seems we need to spend some time cleaning up, if we lock the views which seems should take care of it but the parts still seem to move.

 

Any suggestions ?

How are you placing the views of the parts?

  1. From the part file directly?
  2. From the assembly as a configuration?
  3. As Assembly Part Views (new in ST7)?

If #2, then I would expect them to move no matter what.  #1 or #3 I would not expect them to move at all.


Thanks,

Grundey,

 

I would say like #1 and #3

Re: Draft (Template Locking Views)

And are you trimming the parts using Assembly Features or Assembly Driven Part Features?  In the second view you placed of the moulding, when you defined a user defined view, we saw more in that file than just the half round piece of moulding, it looked like the riser was in there too.  What was that?  May be the reason that the view is shifting because it's not the center of the part file and whne you change the overall length of the step, the half round moulding is physically pushed away from the file's center.


Thanks,

Yes we are using an assembly feature cut on the halfround we want strait showing on that page 2 but not see it in the main assembly (this is for machining purposes)

 

The riser that you were seeing was an inter-part copy

 

The assembly planes are in the center of the main assembly sketch so yes when we change the length it pushes out each end,

 

So what I'm feeling is we would need to keep our curved end from moving in the main assembly.
