Trying to use Sync

Phenom

Hello all,

 

I'm attempting to use Sync the same way I use Ordered. Can any help me along?

 

Attached is a vid. It shows how I make an ordered sheet metal part that re-sizes it's self to another piece of sheet metal.

 

I atempted to so the same thing in ordered, but it does not work.

 

How do I get sync sheet metal to re-size it's self like ordered?

 

What I attempted was to have the four sides of the second tab follow the insides of the first part. It does not update.

I edited the vid to public. Learning curve of posting vid's on youtube

The video is private and no one can view it. I think you were looking to make it unlisted, not private.

more learning curve. Never posted youtube till yesterday to get vid on this site. This is an attemp to just use the site vid.

The fastest way to to this is with the "Create Interpart Relationships" command (search in command finder when in Assembly). This lets you pick one part and it will look at another part and find all the coplanar between them (for example) and do all the necessary stuff. 

 

It will be like a few clicks only, compared to what you are doing and should give the result you want. It is super powerful, but we don't highlight it well to folks. Give it a go.

I can't find the cammand "Create Interpart Relationships". Must I move up from a fundamental license to use that?

Found here. I don't think it requires a special license.

That was it. (why they put relations with the copy and past...who knows) It works in fundimental.  At this point I have to go play around in Sync for a while. It's rough making the conversion to Sync.

This has been great help. Now it's time for the next step if it's possible.

 

Attached are two more vids. One show what I want to accomplish in sync using an assembly driven part. What I really want is to be able to insert, position, and link file accomplishing the same end result. The result being one master part and many slaves in terms of overall dimensions.

 

The second vid is very simple and does not accomplish anything, but demonstrates the Idea I would like to make work. When the last relation was added, I want the added part to re-size it's self.

 

I don't think adjustable assemblies applies because every demo I have seen on that applies to uniform scaling along an axis, not stretching a part along a dimension.

 

I'm not sure what I need to do to allow the added part to "stretch". 

 

In general, I would like mates to drive the overall size of the part.

On your third mate, instead of using a Mate (which means rigidly transform the part till it mates with the other part), use "CoPlanar" in the "Face Relate" group as shown below. This is the command to use when you want to stretch the part, rather than use it rigidly.

If I use co-planer instead of a mate, nothing happens. 

 

All I know to check is the following:

1. The added part has no dimensions or other restrictions (Unless sync added something)

2. The driving part is compleatly defined

3. The co planer command never really allowed me to finish, it was still looking for a surface to locate the co-planer relationship.

Do I use co-planer on everything instead of mates? Or only use co-planer for one of two relations along an axis?

Do I perform any action to let the part know where to stretch?

What was I missing to properly complete the Co-planer command?

 

Big picture, This vid shows what I'm currently doing in ordered. This thread is to see if I can change to Sync.
