Hiding Family Table columns on drawing


Hiding Family Table columns on drawing

Hi All,

I have a model of some trim strip that has some family table instances,
and I've created a drawing showing the generic along with the family
table to show cut angles & lengths for the instances.
One of the instances has a spinal bend to allow the part to be shown in
it's finished shape in the assembly.

My problem is that I would like to hide the columns in the family table
that pertain to the spinal bend - these have nothing to do with cutting
the part, so I'd like to leave them off to keep the drawing simple.

Is there a way to do this, or am I missing some obvious other approach?

Thank you,

Hiding Family Table columns on drawing

Go to the table

Table > Repeat Region >Filters > (select the region) > By Rule > Add

Type the following:

& != <the header=" of=" the=" family=" table=" column=" you=" want=" to<br="/>remove>

( recall that != is pro/e relation-speak for "does not equal")

The header will probably be something like [SPINAL BEND]. If there is a
space in there, like I show here, you'll need to put it in quotes, so it
would be

& != "[SPINAL BEND]"
