Does anybody know how 3d constraints get suppressed, and more to the point
how do you unsuppressed them when they do?

Kent,

I'm sure Chuck Savatsky told us once but i cant find it nor can i
search this particular NG :smileysad: Sorry i never cataloged it!

YooHoo, Anne!, When are we gonna be able so search this NG. Please
make sure whomever is aware if this shortcoming. Whats wierd is we can
still search non existent MCAD.Marketing. Dont think it returns much
current stuff tho :smileyhappy:

Drew -

It's on my every other day reminder list. There are server
changes at this time and I don't seem to be drawing much
attention to the problem. I'll try again daily?

Kent,
To my understanding a 3d constraint gets suppressed, when one of the
entangled features got suppressed. It seems to be a big step ahead, that
MDT4 does not simply throw the constraint away, but tries to keep it in a
suppressed state, until the feature gets unsuppresed again.
Regards, Leo

Hi Kent

There was a thread some times ago regarding ( nearly ) the same problem

If you have a part which is constrained to another part, and suppress a
feature that is used for 3D-constraining on one of the parts, then the
3D-constraint is suppressed too.

Example:
2 cylindrical parts with a hole through, constrained together via
"insert". Suppress the hole on one of the cylinders, and the "insert"
constrain is suppressed too.

Was that your point ?, if so unsuppress the feature, update assembly,
suppress again. Can be easier written than sometime done :-)

Regards
Lars Nielsen

Thanks all for the replies

As usual I have deleted the problem and gone on so things are slightly
different now, but I did not then and don't now see any features suppressed
on any of the parts.
