I want to pattern a group for use in assemblies in a family table.
I only want the main group in the Generic and not the pattern members.
How do I set this up in the family table?
Probably not the best use of family tables.
Give more details of what you are trying to accomplish.
The generic be default has all of the information needed by the instances. Using a family table to control patterns in an assembly would be where family tables excel as a design tool. Family tables are more suited to variations of a basic shape, lengths of bolts or diameters, etc. I have done some family tables of assemblies but they become very difficult as you add more components to the assembly variations.
Not tested, but on the top of my head, this is not possible. If you need a given individual group (whatever is leader or patern member) to be configured as a column of a Family Table, you need first to Unpattern (AND NOT Delete Pattern) the Patterned Group:
Again, as said earlier, not tested. So if anybody else has better ideas, Thanks in advance to share them here.
