Declaration of dimensioning views

See Section, “Example: Variants of Dimensioning views ”.

Correct declaration in the case of 3D models:

Under Variants, you can use the default value (none) and create VERS 1 (exemplary naming), just as well you can leave (none) empty and create the rows VERS 1 and VERS 2.

When assigning the 3D model, simply use the default row under Modes "(none)".

A) Using variant (none) and VERS=1

B) Using variant VERS=1 and VERS=2

Another correct possibility is to create a row with dedicated name under 3D models -> Modes (which is not a real advantage over the use of the (none) row).

[Note] Note

Faulty assignment of model: Once in Modes "(none)" and once in Modes "variant".

In Test Meta a Warning is displayed.

Warning - Error in part: <Path>: The 3db is not loaded ...

Warning - Error in part: <Path>: The 3db is not loaded ...

(none) also acts as fallback

If in the dialog area Variants a 3D model assignment exists for the variant (none), that variant is used as "fallback" for all cases, where variants do not have a model (in below example "VERS=2").

[Note] Note

Up to V11 SP3, in TestMeta, a warning had been displayed, if there was a variant with no 3D model.

As of V11 SP4 in this case no warning will be shown anymore, if under (none), a "fallback variant" is stated.

Following figures shall help to clarify the use:

  • Selection variant (none)

    The model "cube2.3db" acts as fallback for variants without 3D model assignment.

    cube2.3db as fallback

    cube2.3db as fallback

  • Selection variant VERS = 1

  • Selection variant VERS = 2

    This variant has no 3D model assigned. The model under variant (none) acts as fallback.

    -> In TestMeta, no warning is displayed.
