I am trying to create a dynamic component that I will use in exploded view’s.
The sample here is a collection of issue’s that I don’t know how to handle it correctly.
In this sample, I have a folie that f.e will be glued to a wooden frame.
The folie has a glue area and holes.
How do I create holes that will be have the same size even after a scale operation?
Lets say I have info about the hole size in a formula, how do I repeat those hole’s vertically?
If I have some items in a sub component, how can I connect a formula to the parent or child?
How can I hide certain lines from sub components or groups?
How can I stick a thickness to a line? Of course Styles are nog copied over when placing a new component into my drawing.
Component Layers. I am using a few ‘internal’ layers inside the component. Is there a way to hide the layer entry’s in the layer list when the component is imported?
Best way. using a Component work file? If I create a drawing and save that as a Component with right click and ‘save as’ then I got a component at the toplayer, however if I save the workfile the the component sits inside a container. Wat is the best way to have a component saved en ready to edit it? If I keep a work file the I have two files to maintain. Any tips on workplan?
Scale and material on face Now when I scale a plane in a direction the material is scaled too. How can I avoid that? Is there a way to just resize a plane.
Is there any problems or bad working method in here?
