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.
|ChamferDistance||Number||Sets the chamfer distance for this end-cap feature.|
|OffsetDistance||Number||Sets the offset distance for this end cap feature.|
|Thickness||Number||Sets the thickness for this end cap feature.|
|ThicknessRatioForOffset||Number||Sets the offset distance of the end cap as a ratio of the thickness of the structural member being capped|
|UseChamferCorners||True/False||Sets whether to chamfer the corners of this end-cap feature.|
|UseThicknessRatioForOffset||True/False||Sets whether a ratio of the thickness is used to specify the offset for this end-cap feature.|
|Profile Path||Text||Set the Path and name of the Profile. See examples below.
This parameter is driven into the Type selection in the Structural Member properties.
|Angle||Value||Set the rotation angle of the profile|
|ApplyCorner Treatment||True/False||Sets if corner treatment is applied or not|
|Corner Treatment Type||Text||Sets the type of corner treatment
(ApplyCornerTreatment must be set to True)
|GapWithinGroup||True/False||Sets whether there is a gap within groups|
|Configuration Name||Text||Sets the configuration to be driven.
This parameter is driven into the Size selection in the Structural Member properties.
="C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\lang\english\weldment profiles\ansi inch\square tube.sldlfp"
The absolute path to the profile, the name of the profile and the file extension of the profile are built up in a text string. This location and file must exist on each machine that will generate the models.
="<SystemWeldmentProfile>\ansi inch\square tube.sldlfp"
Using the text string <SystemWeldmentProfile> will cause DriveWorks to search in each of the SOLIDWORKS configured weldment profile template paths to find the first matching profile.
