Insert A Cavity In A Part In An Assembly - SOLIDWORKS PowerPack

The Insert A Cavity In A Part In An Assembly Generation Task will insert a Cavity Feature into a Part in an Assembly.

Properties

Property NameDescription
(Name)The unique name for this Task.
Cavity Part Instance NameThe Part name, with Instance Number of the Part that the Cavity Feature will be inserted into.

Instance numbers will change when models are replaced in SOLIDWORKS.

This Task requires the instance number to be as it is listed in the SOLIDWORKS Feature Manager.

This will be different when running as a Pre Drive Task and Post Drive Task.

For example:

Running as a Pre Drive Task will require the master instance name and number.

Running as a Post Drive Task will require the finalized instance name and number.

We recommend running this through Model Insight to confirm instance names and numbers.

Part To Use In CavityA pipebar (|) delimited string of Parts (with Instance Numbers) to use as the Cavity.

Instance numbers will change when models are replaced in SOLIDWORKS.

This Task requires the instance number to be as it is listed in the SOLIDWORKS Feature Manager.

This will be different when running as a Pre Drive Task and Post Drive Task.

For example:

Running as a Pre Drive Task will require the master instance name and number.

Running as a Post Drive Task will require the finalized instance name and number.

We recommend running this through Model Insight to confirm instance names and numbers.

When naming Parts to be used it is important that the name(s) you enter for the properties are an exact match including case sensitivity and spaces.

The Parts and the Assembly must exist for this Task to work. This means new files need to be released and generated before the Generation Task can be run.
