Repeating Mapkey

I would like to createa mapkey to place an axis on a rounded surface, and have it repeat without having to reselect the mapkey between each one. Is this possible?

RE: Repeating Mapkey

And while I'm at it.... once I have placed these axes,... why is there no way to scale them equally on my drawing. Even with the grid snap on, each one scales a little differently from the previous one. Arrgh!!

Each of the axes in the pic below was grabbed and stretched to 2 clicks with the grid snap on... from the same zoom as you see in the pic. As you can see the result is three different sized centerlines. Sloppy at best.

Hi Chris,

What if you use a ProToolkit app named Autoaxis to create all axes for you automatically...

Autoaxis is a free Pro/Toolkit application (It source codecames with Pro/E)that will analyse your model and create axes for the holes which does not have them... and it magically groups the axes for you by diameter... very cool...

I can share it with you if you want...

I know nothing about TOOLKIT,... how do I know if I even have that app?

Answer: Check your licenses and modules under the help or information
pull-down in Pro/E.

Hi Chris,

Please find attached the app - It is free so you don´t need to worry about licensing...If you install the Pro/EC API (Pro/Toolkit API)you are going to get the source code at the folder \loadpoint\includes

PS: Don´t worry about Pro/Toolkit license. You will only need to have itif you are developing custom applications for Pro/E. You don´t need it to run a existing application unless the developerembedded a licensing mechanism into the application itself.

In my next postI´ll try to upload thevideo tutorial (15Mb)showing you how to install it...
