Partbuilder autolayout data

297 Views, 3 Replies

I am in the process of creating a bunch of custom parts for our branch. I have complete some cb's complete with grates and a simple headwall. My problem is with a 'simple' pipe.

 

Attached is a screen capture of my new C900 parts. If you look closely in the bottom left you will notice a cyan 'dot'. This dot (which is the autolayout point) should reside in the centre of the part but the freaking thing will not move.

 

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards

Thanks.

 

I already looked in that thread. My part is a custom one and not from existing parts. I was still not able to modify the autolayout point origin.

 

That being said it after I could not find a solution I simple did a saveas from an existing pipe library and modified it (the autolayout was in the correct point).

Unfortunately I am not sure why you could not move the autolayout data after it was placed. Did you mistakenly place it there, then go to change the point or did it mysteriously appear there?

 

Either way I am glad to hear you were able to modify an existing part to get the desired effect.
