I can't believe this. I created a new IPN and even though I knew it
wouldn't work I decided to try automatic explosion. Now we all know that
this command doesn't give you anything useful 99.99999% of the time (kind of
like auto balloon and get model dimensions).

Hit the OK button and I'll be damned if it didn't explode that assembly
PERFECTLY. I only had to tweak one part.

This must be my lucky day....:smileyhappy: Maybe I should go home and quit while I'm
ahead

I haven't tried that command since the day I took IV 5 out of the box!

Never works for me either... (Doesn't in MDT either)

Seems to be dependent on which constraints are applied in which order.... kinda
like potluck. You just lucked out. :smileyhappy:

I always tweak manually in each package....

Holy (edited)! Sean, did you just slam inventor? Cripes, I think I see the

I think I complimented it (and made a sarcastic remark in the same sentence)


Mark if you think I only compliment IV you haven't been reading enough of my
posts. I like IV but I do call a spade a spade when required...
