Summary - def_layer

Huh, sounds like it's not possible.  Goofy.  I'll just create rule
driven layers with the same names.



Thanks,

Hi,

Perhaps you could try this :

- create a new assembly (with layers defined by def_layer).
- put in this assembly all you want to update
- then in this assembly, choose to propergate layers to all members (with extend rules).

Is it something like you wanted to do ?

Two problems with that approach:



1 - A new, blank assembly will have no layers in it.  The layers defined by config.pro 'def_layer' statements are only created when needed.  So, until you create a plane, there is no plane layer.  I'd need an assy with a plane, an axis, a cosmetic, a GTOL, a curve, a surface and a coordinate system. 😄



2 - Even if I did that, I'm not sure that these kind of layers would respond to the 'extend rules' command since they are not based on rules.



Also, I did forget to mention that two folks said that Model Check could do this, but I don't run model check here and don't really want to figure it out for this.
