FAQ Description

How can I adjust the value range fields in the variable view?

Some parts contain value range fields. In order to completely specify the part, a selection must be made in the value range fields.

The settings are made in the Variables section.

Follow the steps listed below to set the value ranges:

  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. Select the desired part by clicking into the option button before the desired row.

  3. Click on the part description in order to reach the variable view.  

     -> You will recognize the value range fields based on their yellow background color.

    There are different types of value range fields:

    - List fields
    Using the arrow  open the value range field and select the desired value. 


    Then select the desired value.

    - Input fields or selection via slider
    Enter the desired value manually or set it using the slider in the given area.

    Inputs outside of the allowed value range are automatically corrected.  

    - Value range fields with images
    Some catalogs support images for variant selection. 

     Click on the image in order to set another value.

    -> A dialog opens for choosing the characteristic per image.

    Select the desired variant by clicking on the image.

    -> It is reloaded into the variable view.

    If you do not want to take over the changes, click on x.

    The part is now completely specified.
