Design Scenario with Fixtures

Question asked by Mahir Abrahim on Jun 10, 2009

I would like to automate running multiple studies that differ only by the method of fixture. For example, I have an irregular bar fixed at the ends with the other fixed points variable. I can't drive the fixture location with a dimension because the split line creates surface entities whose ID changes based on where the split is located. So instead I have 4 different studies with different permutations of 4 fixture features (1-4) that are either suppressed or not. The 4 permutations are 1, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4. Right now I'm manually running these studies, but would love to find a way to click a button and run them all one after the other. Again, the different permutations are exactly the same (material, load, mesh) except for the application of fixtures. Thanks for any help.
