smart components

Question asked by D. Molter on Jan 19, 2016

I'm having a bit a trouble with the creation of smart components. I can get the features, and components to work, but I run into trouble with different mounting surface thicknesses. My example is creating a smart component of a fan for an enclosure. The fan uses a guard, four screws and 4 nuts. The fan mounts flush to one side of the sheet metal and the guard flush to the other. there are application that this fan might be mounted to 14ga steel or 1/8" aluminum. When I insert the base component into a model and then insert the smart features the spacing of the guard to the fan will only use the thickness that was created in the assembly when the smart component was created, can I make this automatic or some configuration control to adjust this distance.
