I'm facing a problem dealing with visibility formulas... My situation that im dealing with is, I have 2 yes/no visibility parameters, one that is called Right side clearance and another one named Left side clearance. I want to create another yes/no visibility parameter that's called Clearance. I want to link the Right and Left clearance parameter to the Clearance parameter where if it is off, then there will be nothing that shows.. But if I want it on then I would have to select either right or left without them both showing up? I hope I explained this well enough for anyone's opinion or help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
My question: is it not acceptable that the control of the clearance be left to the Right/Left controls? If neither one is checked, then there is no clearance visible.
If not, then you will need to create two additional Yes/No Parameter that will be dedicated to handling Visibility:
Parameter Name Formula
VisR = and(Clearance, Right)
VisL = and(Clearance, Left)
I typically name such parameters so that the typical user will not be confused by the presence of two "Right" checkboxes. I also Group these under another something like "Identity Data" where it is far less likely to be noticed.
Im a little confused on what parameters I should be assigning the visibility to.. Here a Picture of the Left Clearance and the Right Clearance (Clear Revolve).. Below is my parameters
Right now I have Left and Right Clearance assigned in where the red arrows appear. The Blue arrow is the parameter I want to control both but only allow to have a right or left clearance... In other words I want the end user to be able to turn on or off the clearance but when its on, only have a left or right side clearance appear with the users choice.. I added the parameters you suggested where the black arrows point to.. am I suppose to assign to them and then set up a formula off that?
You will not need the "Vis L" parameter since you set it up so that "Right Clearance" is in control ("Vis L" and "Left Clearance Detection" are redundant). I would suggest Grouping "Left Clearance Detection" along with "Right Clearance Detection" under Visibility - it will make it easier for a user to understand your setup if he can see both of these parameters together.
The left and right clearance extrusions' visibility should be linked to the parameters "Left Clearance Detection" and "Vis R", respectively. Remove "Vis L" and assign the formula below to "Left Clearance Detection":
= and(not(Right Clearance Detection), Clearance Detection)
