"Open" vs "Open Automatic"

Hi everybody,

 

Today I am writing with the following issue. (Sorry for not being able to post pictures, but I cannot do it because of the confidenciality policy in my company)

 

I got an assembly with the tree structure you can see below, and I had to replace the casing for a new one:

The new casing was placed in the wrong spot, so I arranged it so that it is located ·By "Default" in the right one . Then, I re-constrained all the parts below in the tree respect to the new casign.

Until here, everything fine. I saved the work into our PLM software and it looked OK .

 

After a while, I realized that in our visualization sofware the shafts were still in the old position, while the casing was in a different one.

 

If I "Open" GEARBOX_ASSEMBLY.ASM, I see on Creo what I did (casing in the desired spot, and all the parts constrained respect to it, all in the right position).

But, if I open "GEARBOX_ASSEMBLY.ASM" using the option "Open Automatic" the items "Casing.asm" and "Shaft_1.prt", "Shaft_2.prt", are really far one each other.

 

So, if looks as if "Open Automatic" does not respect the constrains I entered when modifying the assembly... and the questions arising from this story are the following ones:

 

1. What is the difference between "Open" and "Open Automatic"? 

2. How can edit the lay-out so that I get the same result opening the assembly on both ways?

 

I hope I managed to explain the issue properly, but if someone needs more info, do not hesitate to ask for it.

 

Thanks you all in advance!

Re: "Open" vs "Open Automatic"

What release and build code are you using? I've never seen "Open Automatic"

 

*Edit*

I just realized, maybe the open automatic is opening and exploded version. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, does it reference and "explode state"

Hey guys, thank you both for your support!!!

 

Thanks to  the info TomU provided me with, it is more clear  how Automatic Representation works. But, in spite of I could solve my issue, I bet I would have to struggle a bit more future in scenarios... Smiley Wink

 

Kind regards
