SHEET METAL EXTENTS FROM PARTS INTO ASSEMBLY

356 Views, 3 Replies

Hello all.

 

WARNING:I am new to ilogic and creating code.

 

I have an assembly containing several sheet metal parts. I have a spreadsheet that needs the length and width extents (stretchouts) for each of the sheet metal parts in the assembly.

 

I created rules that that will update the custom iprops and the user parameter at the part level.

 

My problem is this: I can not get the new length and width extents into the assembly custom iprops or user parameters without opening and and updating the part models individually.

 

JPG 1: this is the ilogic that populates the user parameters and custom iproperties at the assembly, but it wont work.

 

JPG 3+4: this is the ilogic at the part level that populates the user parameter length and width extents. This is the information I need to get into the assembly but I dont know how.

 

 

JPG 1 (AT ASSEMBLY LEVEL)

JPG3 (AT PART LEVEL)

JPG4 (AT PART LEVEL)

TO RECAP: I NEED SHEET METAL EXTENTS TO FILTER UP FROM THE PART LEVEL TO THE ASSEMBLY LEVEL.

 

THANKS FOR ANY HELP

DON

So - you need an ilogic routine that opens each part file in an assembly, runs the 'create unfolded part'command, and then saves and closes each part...

I don't have this routine, but I want it :smileywink: I hope that Curtis Waguespack is reading this!

I'll see what I can come up with, but it might take a few days for me to get back to it.
