Hello all,

I'm designing a atuator cilinder whith many configurations and I need use a Desing Table (excel) for all configurations. With a Distance Mate (advanced mates menu) I put the maximum and minimum value to piston movimentation. How can I put this maximum and minimum mate values in a Design Table?????

Yeah, problems...

It looks like SW2010 add the limits ( ex:LIMITS;0.00000;10.00000 ) to the set distance when reading from a DT. Anytime you change the DT, the 'AdvancedMates' lower limit becomes the

distance + your DT lower limit. This spits out an error because your DT and AdvancedMates don't agree with each other..Some Excel wizardry, will ensure that your upper and lower limits are what is expected. What we're doing is creating a negative number which SW2010 'AdvancedMates' then 'adds' to the existing distance. You could end up with some negative number and errors though, so test. test. test.

Seems to work. Hope this puts you on the right path.
