Again, you guys are awesome.
Thanks to Rui Vaz, Andrew Burke and Eric Hill.
Rui Vaz suggested repeat regions - not sure if that will work.
Andrew Burke suggested pro/Notebook - probably will work but I didn't try it yet.
Eric Hill suggested a 'clean' table, without the ":x" reference. Worked like a charm. Exactly what I was looking for.
Below is the responses in case you have not seen them yet.
Thanks again. This group is invaluable. (You're more than valuable. You're in-valuable.)
1. Edit your table in an empty drawing, or a drawing with only one part (so Pro/E doesnÃ¢ÂÂt stick the model identifier after the colon in the parameter text) and make sure there are no model identifiers after the parameter names in the table (e.g., ¶meter1, not ¶meter:1).
2. Save the table to a table (.tbl) file.
3. In your drawing, add or set the part you want the new table to be associated with as the *current model*.
4. Retrieve your saved table, all the parameters should link up with the current model & Pro/E should add all the colons & model identifiers automatically.
Sounds like you should be using a Notebook instead of a drawing ... that is the purpose of Notebook, to drive the dimensions of a part. Better yet, it is easy to have several parts reference one Notebook, which it sounds like you are trying to do. It is also very easy to have the models reference different Notebooks, sever the connection all together, re-connect models to the Notebook later, etc.
You could try a dummy assembly and a REPEAT REGION, but I'm not sure it
Hey everyone. I don't think this has been asked recently...
I have a table that is associated with a part. This is not a family table, but rather one that points to parameters. (The advantage is: 1. no family tables, 2. yes/no parameters...)
Example: Part A has Table A.
In the drawing table, you can change the parameter 'height' and hit regen and your part updates.
Now, you add Part B, with an identical parameter 'height'. I can copy the table and associate it with the new part manually. (By changing the table value from height:0 to height:1.) Unfortunately, I have a lot of parameters in the table.
I want to be able to control both parts by tables in the drawing.
How can I re-associate the table automatically? Or at least faster than one-at-a-time?
I'll post a summary.
