Creo-MBD -- enhance/improve PMI functionality
Requirement 1: Attach symbol instance to PMI/dimension via offset placement based on a stable link in Creo Solid Mode
More generally: More generally: attachment of annotations to other annotations via offset placement should be possible in solid mode. If for example there is an PMI/annotation of type dimension in a part,then it should be possible to attach a symbol instance to this dimension via offset placement, so that this symbol is placed in the same placement plane as the dimension and with the same orientation. If the dimension is moved, then the symbol instance should also automatically be moved, so that the relative position is not changed. The relative position can be changed by moving the symbol instance.
Enable above functionality in Creo Toolkit After implementation of requirement 1 as described above, the existing Toolkit functions for creation of symbol instances should be extended, so that the creation with offset attachment is possible. In this case the placement plane for the symbol instance to be created should be the same as for the annotation, to which the symbol instance is to be attached. The explicit specification of the placement plane via function !ProDtlsyminstPlaneSet" should not be necessary.
Requirement 3: Implement user based attributes for PMI
Requirement 4: Enhancements of requirements 1,3 are maintained in exported neutral data file formats JT, STEP, means: - Relation between PMI and attached symbol is existing in exported formats - user based attributes are available in exported formats
Relevant Use Cases: - Labeling of PMI´s/Annotations/Dimensions for characteristics/QS post processes - Enrich data set of PMI´s/Annotations/Dimensions for MBD post processes
