Search by SIZE of a model - ignoring 'FAR / Off Body' Datums

Search by SIZE of a model - ignoring 'FAR / Off Body' Datums

A very practical way to search for Solid Models (Components) inside an assembly

is to use the 'Search tool' and choose the 'SIZE' Rule.

All components matching the criteria definition are found automatically .

But what happens when Solid Models have 'Far / Off Body' Datums (Points, Curves, Planes)

that extend beyond the real SIZE of the spatial circumference of the Solid Model?

In these cases, The Search Tool finds irrelevant Models, as it looks for the TOTAL Size of a Solid Model,

NOT ignoring the datums...

It would be most recommended to add an option to ignore/disregard Datums while using the 'SIZE' Rule!

Regards!

Thanks for opening this idea. As this is relating to the Creo product, I've moved it to the Creo Community space, for visibility and votes from the appropriate people.
