Supressing Features with Relations

Supressing Features with Relations

I have created a relation control the number of and size of weight reduction slots for a family table of parts. I would like to add a check to determine if the area available for slots is too small to diassable(supress) the pattern feature.


Searched the forum, and didn't see this.



Has anyone done this, or is this even possible anymore?



Thank


Brent

Forgot to mention, we are running creo elements/pro 5.0, build M130

RE: Supressing Features with Relations

Pro/PROGRAM is the functionality that facilitates this. Features in a part or components in an assembly can be suprpressed or resumed based on some condition you set. That condition could be a parameter setting like from a layout (Pro/NOTEBOOK) or a value from an analysis feature. I believe thereare examples in PTC's Knowledgebase.

RE: Supressing Features with Relations

Thanks to all that helped with this. The general concensus was to use Pro/Program. Here is how it worked


I had already created a parameter (WD) in the relation that was the working distance for the part.


Using Pro/Program (Once I found out where it was moved to) I created an if staement that looked basically like this:


IF WD > 10


ADD FEATURE


END ADD


ENDIF


So as long as the minimum length is met, the feature will be added.
