"Batch" distribution of rules driven layers

Hello all,

my problem is simply, but l don´t know fulfil solution. All my layers are rules based (see picture bellow) and l need to propagate/distrubuted it into all my parts and assemblies. l don´t want to copy layer manualy into each part. l think Modelcheck isn´t able to copy rules, just create a leayrs with desired name, but RULES are missing = functionality is lost...

Can trail file help me? Don´t have any expiriences with trail files...

Can some kind of external application help me? Which one?

Do you have any other idea how to copy/propagate them?

Thx all for responses...

Re: "Batch" distribution of rules driven layers

Put those rules-based layers in your start parts/assemblies, create a junk assembly, insert all the parts you want to change, delete all the existing layers from thos parts, then select all the layers you want at the assembly level, and "Extend rules", this propagates all the layers with rules down into any parts and/or assemblies in your junk assembly. Exit and make sure you save all the other parts/assemblies.

Here's where I first learned of them:

Milan,

you can save rule definition to a Query file and later retrieve it.

Thanks for answer,

l´ve never used Save/Retrieve Query To File, have to inspect these function.

Re: "Batch" distribution of rules driven layers

Hello Frank,

thanks for answer and PPT presentation, It´s helpful.The way you described is exact the same like l usually do it. At least l know, that l´m doing it right way.

Layers can be deleted via ModelCheck, but what about passing them back?

The target of my question is AUTOMATION. l don´t want open each main assembly and past layers...

In generall l don´t have so much assemblies/parts, so the way you described isn´t so bad... (1-2 work days)

Thx

If you do it at the TOP assembly, EVERYTHING below will be fixed.
