I’m new, so this is probably something simple, but I’d appreciate some help.
I created a DC called “Lumber” with options to choose sizes like 2x4, 1x6, etc. I also gave it a custom attribute to specify an angle to be cut on the end. I was hoping to end up with a “board” with an angled end that I can scale to various lengths.
I implemented it with a DC containing 2 groups, one a rectangular slab, the other a triangular slab. My formula on the LenZ attribute of the triangle uses a simple trig function of the angle and the width of the piece. All seemed to work fine.
However, I notice that whenever I specify a new angle in the Component Options dialog, I get a new item in the Components window named Lumber#1, Lumber#2, etc.
Can someone please suggest a better approach?
