2.2.4.5.2. Specify user defined attributes via categories

The following describes how to specify user defined attributes via categories.

Thereby the attribute value to be transferred to the CAD system can be conditioned on a rule.

  • If A applies then transfer value 1

  • If B applies then transfer value 3

Detailed information is found under Section 2.2.1.1, “ What are categories?” and following sections.

  • In the respective section[45] (here "Custom") declare the user defined attribute "Kind of Part".

    This is specified by the category for part (is3dpart) and assembly (is3dasm).

    [Custom]
    ;          # Part #
    KindofPart(is3dpart)=?"Part"
    ;          # Assembly #
    KindofPart(is3dasm)=?"Assembly"

  • In the respective section (here "Custom") declare the user defined attribute "Catalog class".

    This is specified by the category for Catalog (isCatalog).

    [Custom]
    ;           # General #
    CatalogClass=?1
    
    ;           # NORM #
    CatalogClass(isCatalog(norm))=?2
    
    ;           # AHP #
    CatalogClass(isCatalog(ahp))=?3
    
    ;           # AMF #
    CatalogClass(isCatalog(amf))=?3

[Note] Note

If no category applies the key without specifying category is taken.
