Family Of Assemblies Issue

Creator

Capture.PNGHi,

 

I am new to Solid Edge, I have been using it for about 2 months. One of my projects required me to use the family of assemblies to show a drawer in the open and closed positions. I did this correctly to my knowledge, but today the drop down that let me choose the drawer position turned into a blank bar (shown with blue box around it). Also when I make certain changes (relationships and show/hide part) and save, the assembly doesn't keep them. When I look at the assembly in design manager it doesnt show any of the existing parts. I can still open the part through solid edge. I might have a corrupted file? Does anyone know how this might have happened and how to prevent it in the future? I included screen shots.

 

Thanks.

I have never seen that happen and we use them here.

 

You probably need to contact your VAR or GTAC as the file and all components used will be needed to diagnose what is going on.

I can try that, thank you. I figured it was worth a shot to see if anyone had seen anything similar.

welcome @Careframe   couple things.

1st, not a big deal here, but you would do well to start a new thread, this one is a couple years old and sometimes old issues don't have the same root cause/solution as new issues.

 

2nd, to the problem we see symptoms similar to this (if I'm understanding correctly) whenever a FOA is opened from a draft.  Handy feature to be able to just double click a drawing view on a draft to open the model.  I would recommend not doing that when using FOA.  In our experience the damage is done not when the FOA is opened from draft but once it's saved.  


->If you cannot find a Solid Edge setting, confirm you have a file open of the type that will be affected.
->If you have started a thread and a response solves the problem or answers the question you asked, then please mark it as solution. Note, there can be multiple solutions for a thread.
