Cross Section selection while in Mechanism mode

Cross Section selection while in Mechanism mode

Please allow selecting, activating, and deactivating cross sections while in Mechanism mode.  Today this is unavailable.

The current workaround is:

  1. Activate a cross section
  2. Enter mechanism mode
  3. Run the analysis
  4. Save the analysis
  5. Leave mechanism mode
  6. Select a different cross section
  7. Re-enter mechanism mode
  8. Re-load the previously saved analysis

Steps 4 - 8 could all be avoided if we could just select a different cross section while still in Mechanism mode.

Tom,

I'm sure may others have ask for this enhancement request using the old enhancement request system many years ago.

When one's setting up a complex mechanism analysis or adding mechanism springs within a complex assembly while defining many motors it would also be very efficient to have the ability to create cross sections on the fly and turn them on and off without having to close out of mechanism mode every time you need to change a cross section view.

 

Thank you for creating this product idea!
