16.1. PARTdesigner-Expressions

[Note] Note

PARTdesigner expressions can be used at different places (e.g. in the sketch or in dimensionings).[112]

IF THEN ELSE ENDIF

 
VAL SIN(VAL) Sine
VAL COS(VAL) Cosine
VAL ASIN(VAL) Arc sine
VAL ACOS(VAL) Arc cosine
VAL TAN(VAL) Tangent

VAL COT(VAL)

Cotangent

VAL ATAN(VAL)

Arc tangent

VAL CONTAINS(STR1,STR2)

Check whether STR1 contains STR2:

Result: 1, if yes; 0, if no.

Example:

CONTAINS("Sechskantschraube","schraube") = 1
CONTAINS(NENNX,"X") = 1

Variables do not need quotation marks.

Text does not have to be set into quotation marks.

VAL SGN(VAL)

Signum function

The function assigns +1 for x > 0, 0 for x = 0 and -1 for < 0.

Example:

SGN(10)   =  1
SGN(5)    =  1
SGN(0)    =  0
SGN(-10)  = -1
SGN(-5)   = -1

STR TOK(STR,STR,VAL)

TOK(string, separator, position of the searched value)

Result: String of the searched position

Example:

TOK("a,b,c,d,e,f",",",4) = d

VAL NTOK(STR,STR)

NTOK(string, separator)

Result: Number of string elements

Example:

NTOK("a,b,c,d,e,f",",") = 6

STR QTOK(STR,STR,STR,VAL)

QTOK(string, separator, sign of text identification, position of the searched value)

Result: string of the searched position in quotation marks

The expression is similar to TOK, but here the particular elements of the string are marked with a sign of text identification.

Example:

TOK("<'a','b','c','d','e','f'",",","'",5) = "e"

VAL NQTOK(STR,STR,STR)

NQTOK(string, separator, sign of text identification)

Result: Number of string elements

Example:

NQTOK("<'a','b','c','d','e','f'",",","'") = 6

VAL CVAL(STR)

Transformation from type STRING to type DOUBLE

STR CSTR(VAL) Transformation from type DOUBLE to type STRING
VAL SQRT(VAL) Square root
VAL ABS(VAL)

Absolute value

Example:

|-3.4| = 3.4

VAL CUT(VAL)

Cutting the decimal places

Example:

CUT(3.8) = 3

VAL RND(VAL)

Round

Example:

RND(3.8) = 4
RND(1.4) = 1

STR LCASE(STR) Transformation of all letters to lower case letters
STR UCASE(STR) Transformation of all letters to upper case letters

VAL INDEX(STR,STR)

INDEX(string, searched part of string)

Result: Position of part of the string

Example:

INDEX("test","e")=2

STR MID(STR,VAL,VAL)

LEFT(string, number of elements to cut out from the left side)

Example:

MID("test",2,2) = "es"

STR LEFT(STR,VAL)

LEFT(string, number of elements to cut out from the left side)

Example:

LEFT("test",2) = "te"

STR RIGHT(STR,VAL)

RIGHT(string, number of elements to cut out from the right side)

Example:

RIGTH("test",2) = "st"

VAL GETTHREADVALUE(STR,STR,VAL,STR)

Compare the following function:

GETTHREADTEXT gets a text from the table and GETTHREADVALUE a DOUBLE value.

VAL GETTHREADTEXT(STR,STR,VAL,STR)

Used with threads:

Using the following expression you can generate different output.

Example:

NAME  =  GETTHREADTEXT(D,'DIN 13','',P,'NAME')

A detailed description is found under Section 7.9.3.11.1.1.2, “Different pitches and derived automatic calculations for e.g. Row Label and Core diameter ”.

VAL KFIX(VAL) Don't use, not supported!
STR FORMATSTR(STR,STR) Don't use, not supported!
STR FORMATVAL(STR,VAL) Don't use, not supported!


[112] Similar, but not identic, functiions can be used in attribute algorithms. On this compare Section 7.8.11.1, “Mathematical functions (Attribute algorithm) ”.
