All is in the title.
I wish I renumbered the mates of an assembly, to avoid some concentric45, if only 3 or 4 concentric mates, but a lot of tries and modifying the geometry of the asm.
Tx a lot for your tips
you will find all the selected mates in a table where you can change the names of the mates all in one place.
3. After you've made the changes, click the Apply btn and you'll see the renames in the mates folder
(you can also save this table to a separate file. check the options at the left bottom of the configuration window )
Reseting the counter can be the topic of an interesting ER. For now you can manually rename the mates.
Another interesting ER would be to have the 2 datas, when I invoke the measure feature to know the distance of something to a circle : added to distance from something to the center of the circle, the distance from something to the circle would be really nice.
Perhaps such data already exists ?
Yes, it does exist.
I didn't notice those features until now.
It's a great day, for me.
Btw, I didn't success to define a parameter ( Nb of occurences, with a circular pattern, or the depth of an extrude boss, for instance), with the name of a global variable : the box only accepts numeric keys.
Is it possible to by pass this filter ?
Btw, if I enter a R (my keyboard command for a rotation), this r enters in the box, if I forgot some click somewhere, before the R.
Another ER would be to get an efficient filter, for avoiding such manip, the global variable beginning with an ", for instance.
There might be a possibility to do it with macro. Check API section and try there
You can re-name mates. Click on the mate in the tree to highlight it, then hit your F2 key.
Tx a lot for the F2, but if i posted this thread, it was for avoiding to make 15 times the same thing, and to get some "automatic" renumbering, beginning at 1, and ending at the last mate of a given type.
Out of curiosity, PP, what use are you hoping to derive from having a sequential numbering of mates?
This is totally unuseful, I agree.
Just the cosmetic touch, to have something very cutie.
If you never re-read any of your file, trying to understand what you did 6 months ago, I do it, sometimes.
Then, it's a bit boring to check what exists between coincident 17 and coincident 23.
And my assemblies have rarely more than 20 or 30 parts.
I prefer not imagine what that gives with 2000 parts, as written in the SW commercial leaflets.
Nice tip Aviv.
you may click the Like btn...
I hope PP is going to mark it as the answer for his ?
Just the spring in October.
