Afternoon,

 

  Question? Is there a way to array a part in assy 2, from feature driven array of part in assy 1, from within assy 3.

 

Example:

 

1)     Top level assy 3 has a Chassis (assy 1) and PCBA (assy 2) 

2)     Chassis in assy 1 has a feature driven array for reliefs

3)     PCBA to have lamps patterned using reliefs of assy 1

Work-a-round:

 

1)     Insert the Chassis part file in the PCBA assy

2)     Edit part properties to exclude from BOM

3)     Use feature drive array from the part

4)     Hide the part and leave it in the PCBA assy

 

This does not seem to be the proper or correct way to do this, but I know of no other way.

 

Thank you again for your time and effort...

 

Regards,
