Sub Components in a Dynamic component start point


#1

If I create a dynamic component with several sub components how do I determine the sub components Position attributes. For example If I want a subcomponent that is a board that goes around the perimeter of the final component would I start the x position at zero minus the boards thickness?

It depends on the insertion point. Tick ‘show component axes’ in the [Window]>Model Info>Components panel to show the axes of components while Designing your DC. Keep in mind that when you calculate the position of a component its formula is always ‘context-dependend’ thus relative.
