Hi,

 

I would like to know if there is a "Power Copy" function in Solid Edge like in Catia (see video link)?

Hi there @Sadeq,

 

I think you maybe looking for "feature library".

...but that is not always a practical way to model, if the design is later to be manufactured. At which point, you'd be better using an assembly, and making interpart links to drive the "child" parts relative to the changable "parent" item.

That all seemed like an awful lot to go through just to model a simple cylindrical part. I guess I don't understand the way Catia works or something.

Hi,



besides the fact, that I can not clearly understand what is going there I think that a adjustable part, used in an assembly can do something similar.

 

You can insert it with adjustable variables as You need them.
