I am experimenting with Toolbox, but not without problems. How do I specify a range of M4 screws with lengths of 6,8,10,12 etc mm?
Any help would be appreciated.
You can save the screw to a different location, open the part file, add a configuration for each desired length, and then configure the appropriate dimension for the configurations. There may be another way but this is how I do mine and it works well.
Towards the bottom of this thread there is a gentleman named Ralph.
He created an awesome write up on adding and updating the toolbox/holewizard.
See if that document helps you in what you are trying to do.
Thanks for your help, realised I was looking in the wrong area, found what I wanted.
Another question, Is it possible to show Part Number & Description in the Feature Tree rather than the extremely long configuration name?
Some what. You can RC on the toolbox item in the feature tree and select
"Edit toolbox item" then in the property manager you can select either a different
represenative or change the config name to something shorter.
Or at the top of the feature tree RC on the file name and under "tree display" you can change
what titles and info show up under each component.
Thanks for your help.
I would like the screw in the assembly feature tree to show part number and description i.e "12345-678 M4 x 8 Pan Hd Steel ZP" when added to the assembly. This is basically, or can be, the Component Description, but it still means toggling the Tree Display options each time.
