How can I define the characteristic of the part?

Follow the steps listed below to define the characteristic of the part:

  1. Make sure that you are in the dialog area 3D CAD CATALOGS and search for the required part.

  2. At directory level  select product groups as long as a concrete assembly  or concrete single part  has been specified and choose an assembly or a single part.

  3. Define the characteristic of the part, by clicking into the option field of the desired row.

    -> A default view of the selected model which may differ from the selected characteristic, is displayed under CAD model preview.


    If you want to view an exact replication of the characteristic, under  Actions click on Generate preview.

  4. Switch to the variable view by clicking on the part description.

  5. The variable view shows all important data of a specific characteristic in a compact form.

    -> Click on Back to return to the table view.


    For parts with value range fields, the variable view helps allocate the values.
