We have a customer that is running ST9 MP10.
When they pattern a component in an assembly it turns on th planes in all the patterned parts.
Not the original, just the copies.
Various pattern type behave this way. More than one user.
I can't reproduce.
Anyone have this happen?
The patterned parts follow the same rules as newly inserted parts. There are switches somewhere that determine if sketchs and planes, etc are turned on or off when they are inserted into the model.
I think that in solid edge options, under Assembly, if you go down to construction display options, if you check the "show reference planes of component, and then select the "hide after placement" option it ight remedy this.
If that isn't it, then what is it. Does it place everything with whatever it's last saved display settings were for the particular component? I do agree with 12Ga as there is somewhere you tell it to do this behavior, I just don't remember exactly where that is...
Okay I figured it out. Uncheck "Patterned parts inherit parent part occurence properties by default. Then it will stop.
Actually, check that, I'm going back to my original answer. But you have to be inside of the the component that is getting patterned, then go into the options, then change that setting to hide reference planes after placement. Then you when you pattern that component, it won't show the reference planes after patterning.
Okay, i actually figured it out. Go into the component that is getting patterned, and uncheck all of it's reference planes, even if "reference planes" is unchecked. You need to uncheck them individually, then save. This will fix
All I did was select the pattern function. Everything else is on screen. Oh and I saved. And backed out to the higher level assembly. There wasn't much going on off screen.
