I have created customized screws and nuts recently for our company.
Now I am creating customized washers.
Everything works fine till the washers coming. Now I can't get the washers work with the screws and nuts. Simply I just can't get the washers available when I am assembling fasteners.
Here are what I have done.
Basically, I take some of the standard fasteners from "mm". Copy the folder and rename as a different name "ABC". Modified the menu file in the folder, rename it respectively.
I can get all these work fine on screws and nuts. But when it comes to washers, it doesn't work any more. In the IFX interface, when I choose "ABC" from the new generated menu, I can choose the screw and nut, but the washes are grayed out.
Please, any one knows where to set this work properly?
Never Mind. Every body.
I found the answer my self.
The key point is in the "*.mnu" file. The first few lines can only have two line of "#".
I am wondering if somewhere has an explanation of the syntax of the input in those file.
in the *.mnu file there always have to be a block of 3 lines.
First line: Folder or Filename
Second line: English description
Third line: Custom language description
You can add a comment block with "#" but this must also be a block of three.
