After making a drawing of an assy an cicular pattern went screwed up.
about 50% of the parts in the pattern were gone!
nice work!! nice software!
Are there configurations involved?
Can you post some screen shots of your drawing and/or the feature manager
in the model?
Good morning J
I agree that it is nice software, it is 98% or better; issues are normally related to the information input, is there a part that you changed? Did you happen to delete a sketch or a created axis??
Hello sorry for the late reply
there was nothing deleted and no configs involved.
Its an assy with over 1000 parts
Good morning J,
What for line did you check for your circular pattern??
an axis, which is in de assy template
With the amount of information we have from you it is almost impossible to assist you, so if you could get a screen shot of what your talking about, it would be a big help.
Did you pick a temporay axis or did you create an axis.
If you pick a tempory axis that is based on a circular hole or circular extrude and then later change the the profile of that part it can screw up the tempory axis.
A better way is to draw a construction and use that to insert a axis then pick the axis that you created.
The axis of the patern is in the assy template ( axis of a plane + origin). It's a constant thing no temp axis.
From the circular pattern feature, parts were missing (disselected).
Are the parts only missing from the drawing, or also the model?
In the model, have the parts been included in the Instances To Skip section?
What are your system specs?
the parts were also missing in the model
the parts were not included in the instances to skip (it was a pattern of 180°)
Intel xeon 2.33 gHz
3 gb internal memory
nvidia Quadro FX 4500
Solidworks 2010 sp 4.0
Is the problem repeatable in the same and other assemblies?
Nope was the first time, I reselected the parts and it's stable since then......strange thing
Good morning Jan,
You had mentioned that your assembly is 1,000 pcs, what is your large assembly threshold qty setup at, Tools/Options/Assemblies. My guess is this;
As you add more components and your assembly threshold qty would be set at 950 pcs and then your pattern would take it to 1050 pcs., that could do some stuff in SW.
Is your pattern in the main assembly or a sub-assembly??
My large assy mode is turned of for some time now, but it was set on 300 parts, so maybe that has something to do with it?
the pattern is in the main assy
Don't hurry my day, still morning here
I don't know how your assembly is set up but anytime you can do your pattern in the sub-assembly it might be better, than add the sub-assembly to the main assembly.
I might do that nex time, thanx for the tip.
now i'm celebrating my weekend
thanx for the advice
