9.5.1.7.2.  Positioning

  • Connection part and Connection point:

    Assign connection parts to the currently selected connection point. The selection of part and its connection point is performed via these two fields.

  • Translation: Distance between two connection points (via value or variables). In the figure below the profile shifts (later on in the CAD-system) in the defined distance between the connection points 1 and 2.

    • In the input field of Translation, the start position of the movable element in CAD is defined.

    • The option free allows assembly components transferred from PARTdataManager into a CAD system, to be freely rotated around the translation axis.

      If the option Free is activated, a minimum and maximum position can be specified (see next point).

      [Note] Note

      Free translation is only possible, if in the CADENAS PARTsolutions interface for the respective CAD system, the automatic link function is activated (config in $CADENAS_SETUP/if<cadname>.cfg -> key UseAsmMates=Yes)!

    • Min and Max specification is used in order to effect the restriction also in CAD system.

  • Rotation: The part rotates around a connection point (via angle or variables).

    • In the input field of Rotation, the start position of the movable element in CAD is defined.

    • The option free allows assembly components transferred from PARTdataManager into a CAD system, to be freely rotated around the rotation axis.

      If the option Free is activated, a minimum and maximum position can be specified (see next point).

      [Note] Note

      Free rotation is only possible, if in the CADENAS PARTsolutions interface for the respective CAD system, the automatic link function is activated (config in $CADENAS_SETUP/if<cadname>.cfg -> key UseAsmMates=Yes)!

    • Min and Max specification is used in order to effect the restriction also in CAD system. For example, a lever could only be moved in the set range.

      Lever with start position 0° and rotation range from -90° to +90°

      Lever with start position 0° and rotation range from -90° to +90°

      [Note] Note

      Please also have a look on the example on this.

  • Reverse direction: The part is rotated 180 degrees at the connection point concerning the Z axis.

    Direction turn-around: turned off

    Direction turn-around: turned off

    Direction turn-around: turned on

    Direction turn-around: turned on

  • Simulation

    Details on this can be found under Section 3.6, “Simulation”.

  • Tilt: ...allows inclination related to a connection point.

    [Note] Note

    As of V11 only displayed at old assemblies which already used this feature. Should not be used for new creations anymore.

  • Swivel: ...enables turning in an inclined position.
