9.5.1.7.1.2. 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. In above figure the connection point is "part2" with connection point "IP1KNUEBELOK".

  • 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.

    Reverse direction: turned off

    Reverse direction: turned off

    Reverse direction: turned on (what is definitely wrong in this case)

    Reverse direction: turned on (what is definitely wrong in this case)

  • 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.
