hi there

 

is there a way to create " comprehension node" in assembly like in Catia.

A comprehension node is not an assy, it's just a storage box in the assy, used to facilitate the comprehension of the product structure

Hi @LaurentP

 

from my experience with SE I can only Group the Features/Parts using Group command.

 

Right click on chosen part or parts in Pathfinder

Hi @LaurentP

 

 

 

You can Group assembly nodes in Solid Edge too.

 

Just use the Group function from the RMB within an assembly

This is something I use very often, for example to group fasteneer elements, parts from a certain area, parts with a special function, and so on

Hi @arekkul

 

 

 

sorry for double posting the same answer.

 

But when reading Your post I only have seen the "...feature/part ..." text and I first thought that You were talking about part features to gorup only

and don't really understand how the grouping work.

 

for exemple , when you make an assemble of the group , it doesn't take the relationship on the group level but on le part ( under the group) level.

 

so is there a way to fix multiple part together and assemble the whole group ?

@LaurentP, You may be talking about phantom assemblies. Groups are not that. And there is no phantom assembly capability in SE. There have been times when I wish there were.

Hi @LaurentP

 

if those parts are connected/related completely to each other (or to that "group") then the behave as a fixed group of components when adding another relation to an external component.

 

If You would like to have those parts as they are at the moment, You can use the "Rigid Set" relation to let them behave as a single rigid component for further use.
