Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

in WF5 I would like to see all my models values to verify that they are correct. Any ideas?

Re: Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

Create an annotation with the appropriate parameter value by making a relation and using that in an annotation note.

Re: Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

You can add parameter values to the model tree. However it would be a big tree horizontally.

Follow the instructions given below.

Select Model tree Columns and select Model Parameters...

to get the tree as below.

Thank you. I should state that I am on WF 5.0 and these options are not available there.

I do not have the ability to add parameters/relations to all the parts.

Re: Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

You can add them to the relations at the top level only if you choose.

You can select subcomponent parameters in the relation dialog.

Re: Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

can you show me an example? I have to review a hundred parts in a large assy. I do not want to have to modify each part.

Re: Add k-factor on sheet metal to model tree!

This should be similar in WF5. I highlighted the critical selections.

You open the parameters dialog from the relations dialog. Once you have navigated to the component parameters (hence the sublevels), you can select the parameter and have it inserted in Relations. It appends the appropriate sublevel component identifier which is :74 in this case. This value updates itself and might change from time to time.

I think you have no choice but to visit each part to verify the k-factor.

As far as the model change, itshould not be too painful if you create a mapkey to create the required relation.

You can also view the information using "Info/Model" on each part. If this is an ongoing need, then a script to dump the Info/Model information and a macro to extract the data from the .inf files is worth considering.

Are you using Wildfire 5? Here is as far as I got. (:1 being the session ID of the assy). Am I missing something here?
