I would like to have a tree column option to see drafts and rounds values. Sometimes I have multiple parts that I want to match the order and values. Instead of clicking each draft or rounds, it would be nice to see the value of them next to the feature.
For example Round 1 : R0.5 mm or Draft: 5 deg
I understand you can make several sets of different value rounds or have variable rounds, in this case the tree column value could just be empty.
Yes please! Also, parameters. And if this value could be manipulated via the tree..?
It happens that I need to change a parameter or value on a plethora of parts in an assembly, and without a PDM system I have to resort to opening each and every part in turn and repeat the same changes. It would be incredibly helpful if I could just pick up the assembly, display say the parameter DATE for all included parts and subassemblies in a column, and swiftly edit them from there.
Just to be clear, you can add columns to your model tree that include parameters and the value can be manipulated in the tree.
The original post is asking for feature values (like dimensions) to be available in the model tree. It works great.
@_@ Wha... how long has that functionality been there?
Thank you Stephen, that is incredibly useful to me!
I shall eat a cake to your honor, and I'm even on a diet!
You've missed out. It's been in there a long while now, several years.
Well, I began with Pro|Engineer release 17. A lot happens between versions that I miss out on. Especially since I tend to flip-flop between Creo, Solidworks and Inventor.
I realized just the other day that I don't have to sketch vertical and horizontal symmetry lines, draw a square, and then add symmetry constraints. There is now a "center rectangle" that has been available since God knows how long... 😮
I agree completely, I started on pro/e 15. It happens pretty often, someone mentions or shows or I happen to oversee a technique that I've never seen before. That's one reason I like the community. I learn much much more than I can ever give back and it never stops. There is always something to learn.
