Creating new Parameter table

Creating new Parameter table

Hello,

Can someone help me creating "Property table"?

I want to add few new parameters to models.

I know how to create new parameters but it gets assigned under "Main".

Is there any way to create new category say "User defined properties" and create new parameters under the same?

 

Hoping to see quick replies 🙂

If you named your parameters in a similar way you could use a custom filter to easily find them.

You could also build a filter that only includes the parameters you care about.

If you want, you can save this parameter config file and then share it with all users via the config option "parameter_dialog_setup_file".

I've never heard of there being different parameter tables in a part or assembly. The fact that there is a dropdown list implies there could be, but as far as I know there's no such thing. If you're trying to organize parameters into tidy little groupings, you could take the approach of setting their values with relations, where you can add comments explaining their intent, etc.

I'm assuming you're talking about this:

If so, then no, you cannot add to this list.

 

Think of "Main" as the top level of a model (part, assembly, etc.)  Parameters (and relations) can be created at this top level or inside of other things:

@TomU Yes you got it right! Thanks for reply!

@KenFarley Thanks for the reply and sharing your knowledge!

Appreciated!!!

 

Is there any other way to categorize the properties?

I want to add ( and later update) two groups of properties.

Everytime I create a property it gets attached to "Main". So I can not create groups as such.

 

Thanks once again for your replies!
