I have a sheet metal part, no asset, consisting of a face and various flanges.
This place I'm in a fds layout.
Now when I sync with acad I want the flanges are not visible and only the face is visible.
Now I try to list the part a level of detail to make but that is not possible.
I have also tried in the fds assy but that will not be retained.
Is there a possibility to flanges on and off in a level of detail?
I want the acad drawing does not show detailed part.
I think you need to suppress the flange features by like iLogic code. So one key parameter control the flage features suppressed on/off.
I have tried to create a iLogic rule to control the flange features suppressed or not based on the model you sent to me before. In the model, you can set the key parameter "FlangeFeatureSuppressed" True or False, then the flange features will be suppressed or not.
Dim oDoc As PartDocument
oDoc = ThisDoc.Document
Dim oDef As PartComponentDefinition
oDef = oDoc.ComponentDefinition
Dim oFea As SheetMetalFeatures
oFea = oDef.Features
For i = 1 To oFea.FlangeFeatures.Count
If (oFea.FlangeFeatures.Item(i).Type = kFlangeFeatureObject) Then
oFea.FlangeFeatures.Item(i).Suppressed = FlangeFeatureSuppressed
I have made also a ilogic rule and works.
But i tried to make it work in an assy and then only one panel will suppress the flanges.
Now i am trying to make a rule that suppress the features of all the panels that will be insert in the assy so i can suppress al the features at ones in a assy and don't have to do that for each panel separately
I am now ready to succeed to suppress the flanges off the parts in my assy.
The problem now is that if I place a panel with 'Place' it goes well even if I use a different type of panel.
But if I place the panel on "Place iLogic Component" then it does not work.
The panel is the same as when I was with 'Place' insert.
Everything is linked to the same parameters and the same part, the part 'Koppeling'.
Can somebody help me out.
I think that is the issue. The parameter which is linked to the inventor part is not updated if you place the asset by "Place iLogic Component".
So I recommend that you link to the parameter in Excel. Afterwards, All the flange features suppressed or not is controned in Excel.Please give a try to the sample attached.
This is really GREAT!!!
Why didn't i think of that myself.
Now i going to try to link it to a form so my colleague only have to push the button, i let you know.
Thanks very much.
I linked the excel to an assy and its coming on top of the browser.
In the excel i made a pulldown so they can sellect two options.
Now i have a question, can i change the name 3rd Party into 'Zettingen'?
This name is more recognizable.
