This Generation Task will position a component in an Assembly using given X, Y and Z positions. The Task uses the model units.
|(Name)||The unique name for this Task.|
|Component Name||The name of the component in the Assembly, including the Instance number.
Order Of Instance
The instance order in the SOLIDWORKS feature manager does not necessarily follow the order DriveWorks recognizes.
DriveWorks requires the Instance number to be taken from the order it is listed in the SOLIDWORKS Feature Manager. For example:
If you are unsure of the instance ordering, the DriveWorks capture assistant will indicate the order through Captured Parameter Highlighting.
In the image below Flange <5> in the SOLIDWORKS feature manager is Instance 1 to DriveWorks.
Captured Parameter Highlighting indicates the instance parameter in the DriveWorks capture assistant, on the model AND in the SOLIDWORKS feature manager.
|Reset Rotation||TRUE to align the rotation to the Assembly Origin, FALSE to keep the existing components rotation.|
|X Position||The new position in the X Direction.|
|Y Position||The new position in the Y Direction.|
|Z Position||The new position in the Z Direction.|
When this task is added the properties are both static and dynamic by default. See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.
|Property Name||Example Rule||Example Result||Meaning|
|Component Name||"Bush " &DWSpecification&"-1"||Bush 9999-1||This is the component name and Instance number of the component to be positioned.|
|X Position||10||10||This is the distance in the X position that the component will be placed.|
|Y Position||25||25||This is the distance in the Y position that the component will be placed.|
|Z Position||-5||-5||This is the distance in the Z position that the component will be placed.|
Make sure that your component name matches exactly with your rule including any spaces in the name or between the name and Specification name and number.
