Channel subassembly

How can I get the channel subassembly to attach to the assembly insertion point at the channel flowline marker?  I need the flowline to follow my profile elevations.

Try this: attach the channel subassembly to the assembly center marker normally. The flowline should be some distance below the assembly center marker, depending on your specifications. Next, use the Autocad MOVE command to move the channel subassembly vertically up the distance from the assembly center marker to the channel flowline.

 

The assembly should now behave as you want.

I have tried that but it would only allow the channel assembly to attach at the elevation of the point code: channel top. I need to somehow attach at the point code: channel bottom. Shirley D.

I just tried it and it worked great. Did you attach it first normally, at the point code channel top? Then use the normal, regular, run-of-the-mill Autocad MOVE command (NOT the Move command associated with assembly construction) to move it up? It should work easily.

Wow! That did work so easily. I don't remember that being allowed in 2010. Now that I'm using 2012 I have to catch up with the features. Thanks for your help. Shirley D. Wilson, E.I. EJES, Inc. 201 Wilkinson Street Shreveport, LA 71104 Phone: (318) 670-7275 Fax: (318) 670-7284 Cell: (713) 689-4272
