DriveWorks Pro 15: Table Driven Pattern [send feedback...]

Introduction

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Table Driven Pattern

ParameterTypeDescription
TableFileNameTextLoad the location points of the table driven pattern from a *.sldtab or *.txt file
GeometryPatternTrue/FalseChoose to only pattern faces and vertices to decrease computation time
PropagateVisualPropertiesTrue/FalseSet the pattern to propagate visual properties such as cosmetic threads or part colour
SkippedItemArrayPipe delimited string i.e. "1|-7|5|-54"Set the list of pattern instances to skip
