Planar Assistants




I am actually going through the Planar Mechanical User's Guide and following the instructions step by step. I added the "Planar Mechanical 3D Viewer" and the "Planar Mechanical Assembly" icon. In the guide I am told to first open the 3D viewer and later the assembly but when I try to open the assembly I get the following error message:

"An planar assistant icon is already on the sketch

Use only one planar assistant by circuit"


After that I cannot open either of the assistants.

Hi Alex,



The "Planar Mecanical 3D viewer" icon is not really necessary. You can remove it

from the sketch. The Planar assistant is already connected to the "Planar Mechanical

assembly" icon.


That kind of eror message sometimes appear when there is a compilation failure during

the switch from "Submodels" to "Parameters" mode. In such case, the workaround

consists in closing the model and re-open it.
