5.12.1.2. Configuration

In order to make an alternative size available in the 2-D derivation, the following requirements are needed from the manufacturer in the design process:

  1. For single part or assembly projects (see Fig. „Alternative 2D size“) set the following entries under PARTproject -> Edit project -> tab page General -> section Alternative 2D size:

    1. Control variable

    2. Default value for control variable

    >This entry causes,

    1. the option Shortened view to be displayed on the 2D view dialog page.

    2. that program internally a different value is calculated with.

    Shortened view

  2. Expand table in PARTeditor:

    1. Apply the alternative variable, which is entered as Control variable in PARTproject (in the following "HUB2D", for example).

    2. Apply a column with Default value for control variable (in the following "XHUB", for example)

    Columns for alternative dimensioning: "HUB2D" and "XHUB"

    Columns for alternative dimensioning: "HUB2D" and "XHUB"

  3. In the sketch apply the respective values dynamically with an IF condition.

    Example:

    IF HUB2D = 0 THEN HUB ELSE XHUB ENDIF

  4. Optionally for the display of the dimensioning text:

    In the project directory, in the file customdimension.txt set an entry for automatic dimensioning. See also ???.

    CUSTOMDIMENSIONS {
      HORIZONTAL {
        PNT1 { CONPNT { "vorne" } }
        PNT2 { CONPNT { "hinten" } }
        POSITION { BBOXOFFSET{ 15 } }
        FONTHEIGHT { 3.5 }     
        TEXT { "{HUB}" }  
      }
    }
