Another thing i find annoying and maybe there is a way to do this, if so please tell me...

I have my assy open in one window, then i create a new part in another window. i jump back into my assy to put my new part into. To do this it I have to click PLACE, search through explorer to find the part and place it.. i find it time  comsuming considering i know where it is.. its open in the other window!! cant i just drag and drop it into the assy or something ? 


At the top of the model tree of the part, right click on the part node>Copy, switch to the assembly and in the graphics window right-click>paste.

or, just use the same process as adding a model to an idw, select from list of open files, or search for one in the explorer

Actually it's most often just one plane with an angle constraint to get the right side up.

 

Both of us seem to offering suggestions based on our own assumptions of the other's workflow. I envisioned you creating the frame and the going back and changing the filenames for all the parts it generated. (For the amount I might be able to use frame generator, if I took the time to figure out what I was doing I'd probably forget and have to relearn it all by the next time.)

Another wish list item is to allow the C.O.G for a level of detail in an assembly to actually be correct on the IDW drawing!!

How hard is this? it shows in the 3d model, but not on the drawing?

Now i have to make another copy of the assembly, delete all the subassy's i dont want to see and then i can run the COG just so it appears on the drawing correctly!!

 

Aghhh!!!!

rant over.. Anne.

Yes, I too wish that LOD had an effect on the BOM and therefore the COG.

 

To workaround your problem you will have to turn your assembly into an iAssembly, this should give you the COG you're after without having to create copies of your assemblies (which is dangerous as it means each assembly constraint needs to be edited seperately in each assembly).

How about also allowing us to override the cog position when we override the mass.

    a. Add to the popup for a broken constraint: "Accept and Suppress Contsraint"

and/or   

    b. Add a tick box in the constraint window for constraints to be added as suppressed.

Preferably b, if I had to choose one. This would make positions much less painful to create.

Rewrite the code to work like SW.
