SUBCOMPONENT PARAMETERS OF MULTI-LEVEL FAMILY TABLED ASSEMBLY IN TOP LEVEL
This one is killing me - as I've got to be missing something.
3 level assembly - with each level family tabled.
Each level has parameters assigned appropriate to that level.
TOP LEVEL - RATCHET ASSEMBLY (finish, shipping weight, etc.)
2ND LEVEL - STRAP ASSEMBLY (Hook style)
3RD LEVEL - STRAP (MATERIAL, COLOR)
I've got ALL of the parameters in the TOP LEVEL and was setting them with a relation - and then I realized that the session ID is changing for each family table instance!
What I'm really looking for is a way to put the component parameters on a drawing without having to "look up" seesion ID's each time. This seems like very basic functionality - so I'm hoping I'm missing something.
In relations - is there a way to find the "active" instance?
To set parameters of an instance I always use the family table. Trying to do so via assembly relations never seems to work, unless I seek out the generic session ID and set its values. Creo seems to ignore attempts to set parameters for instances, at least as far as I can see.
