Smart Features

Question asked by David Town on Oct 25, 2013

I have some hardware that I added smart features to, and for reasons unknown to me, the 'update feature component size/location' gets broken.  I move the smart part, or change the part size, and the holes remain where they were.  They always start of working fine and moving with the part/feature, then one day it just stops.

 

I've tried reloading the smart part, I've tried deleting the smart features from the mating part, and editing the feature to add the holes back but it never works.  It goes through all the steps.but fails to put the holes in the part.  I select to add the hole features, then it asks me to select a face, and I check the 'update feature' box, and nothing happens.

 

The only way I've been able to fix this is to delete all the hardware and reinsert/mate them, then add the smart features.

 

1. How to I re-add smart features after they have been inserted once?

2. How do I prevent these from being broken?
