Iv attached a picture to show the error & my rule text. I have created the Parameters etc. & the statement includes if & end if. Cheers,Capture.PNG

If Parameter("HEIGHT")=152.4

Parameter("UC_PROFILE")="152.4"
EndIf

 

If you are finding usnderstanding ilogic difficult, have a go at the online tutorials.

when you created the "UC_PROFILE" Parameter, did you create it as a text parameter?

 

If not, in the parameters dialogue, use the drop down in the bottom left which by default says "Add Numeric". Select "Add Text" instead.

** Use "End IF', not "ENDIF"

 

Pasting into IE erased the space.

Cheers,

 

My text in the 'UC_designation' Parameter contains 'x's. E.g - 152.x152x23

 

Inventor recognises this as an equation, therefor the rule doesnt work. Is there any way around this without replacing the 'x's?

Do you know if there is a way in which rules can be run automatically? E.g Everytime the part is updated or saved rather then having to press iTrigger

I'm not that knowledgeable about triggers I'm afraid, as I have only really been creating rules which I need to run on command, but have a look at this...
