I need at Assembly Assets Update frames, created by FG, when geometry of Asset changed.

Would it be correct that if we change the size of the asset, it is now a new asset?

Are you looking to get the detailed drawings of each of the pieces from the Frame Generator model?

When we created assembly assets it is very helpful of using frame generator via creating assets.

In a simple example I created part Simple_Equipment (01) placed it to an assembly and created frame

with parts edge. I created assembly (02) user parameter Width to manipulate with width of part (part made adaptive).

I created asset

Then I created an assembly and placed some new assets

Then I change parameter Widh

As a result – part updated, frame – not

There is a short video about workflow





Best regards,

Hello Konstantin,


In this case, an "asset" is probably not what you would want.  You'd be better to use "insert model" in this case - the reason being that since assets are library components, you can't really


However, I think we need to look into how Autodesk can make a better, more straightforward workflow for this.
