Using assembly parameters in family table instances

Using assembly parameters in family table instances

Dear all,

 

yet another parameter usage post. Hopefully not the usual. I could not find an answer to our problem.

 

I have a family table part and i need to use assembly level parameters into the instances. But fact is, the generic part is not used in the assembly. 

it looks like - though the instances are called into the assembly and have their session ID - the generic has no session ID.

If I use the assembly level parameter in the instance relations, the relations apparently are modified at generic  level crapping up the overall assembly.

The feeling - not sure I did the right troubleshooting - is that i can not inject assembly parameters into an instance as I somewhat inject the assembly parameters into the instance. is there a way to act at instance level?

 

thanks in advance,

Edo777

Hi,

it seems to that driving family table instances "from outside" is not implemented.

Re: Using assembly parameters in family table instances

How do you "inject" the assembly level parameters into the part?

 

If you are using EXECUTE statements, then this might be a solution:

  • Place the generic in your assembly. Hide it. We also use a user parameter in the family table to exclude the generic from our BOM
  • Use EXECUTE statements to drive/inject the parameters of the generic
  • Use those parameters in your instances

Hi HamsterNL,

 

thanks for your suggestion.

I have to dig down a bit myself on how to use the EXECUTE statements you propose, we never did it before here. o

And my specific project now asks me to focus on other details, so, I will let you know when I am "back-on-the-piece". Well, assembly.

 

Thanks for your suggestion!"
