I have a situation where the position of standard components placed in a product varies from project to project.
Is there a way I can control the position and orientation of these parts using a design table?
Or another method?
Yes, of course.
I have worked file based and used constraints for a few years.
Now I work with a catia environment controlled by VPM where positioning is stored in VPM itself.
What I want to do is automate the repetitive task of bringing in standard parts.
At the moment they are added to a product and positioned with compass, etc., and this position saved to VPM. The position of these parts is critical and I would like to incorporate their positioning and checks with the data we are supplied from our sister office which controls this data.
Does this make sense?
