|Single Part, Sub groups, Groups, Assemblies
|| Here, you specify to which parts position flags
have to be attached. After having selected a part type, you can choose a
position flag style for this part type which has to be used to display the
No group sub parts means that group sub parts are
not given a position flag. This is equally valid for subgroups and assemblies.
||Sets the dimension details and offsets in
distribution considering the collisions:
|Don’t check collision during insertion
||At distribution the position flags are placed on the
component part without verifying the surroundings of the part. This is the
fastest distribution method, however the most inexact method as well.
||This value indicates how often a new position has to
be searched for a position flag. The higher the value, the better the
positioning result will be, but the longer the search for a suitable position
of the position flag.
|Insertion Point Distance
||The minimum distance between the insertion point and
the end of the position flag’s guideline
||Your model is divided into different positioning
sections with so-called local centers. The position flags are arranged in a
circle around these centers and inserted. This value sets the minimum distance
between two local centers.
||This value indicates the projection of the flag
beyond the edge of the visible geometry.
||This value specifies the minimum distance between
two neighboring position flags.
|Allowed Flag Angle
||In this field, you specify how the position flags
have to look like. The angle is measured between the guideline and the
alignment of the text of the position flag. The angle is always indicated as
angle area, because an exact angle specification cannot be carried out with
|Number of Shape Sections
||For long shapes you can specify on how many positions
except the center of the shape position flags have to be placed. At the value
0, the position flags are placed on the center.
||Here you specify the radius to be used for verifying
the current position flag with regard to collisions with existing part
geometry, position flags, elevations, texts or dimension texts. The bigger the
value, the longer is the processing time.
||Sets the various positioning options:
- Use Only
Parts with valid Position Number - Creates position flags only for
parts with valid position number assigned to them.
- One Part
per Position Number - Only one position flag is inserted for a part
having the same position or shipping number (depending on the setting).
- One part
per Position Number per Local Center
- Only one position flag is inserted with the same
position or shipping number (depending on the setting) for each local center in
Only Outside - The position flags are attached outside of the model
Lines at Collision - The guidelines are interrupted in the case of
collisions with dimensions or texts.
- Animation - You
can follow positioning procedure on screen if this option is activated. This
may require a lot of time in case of bigger models and cannot be interrupted.
|| Position flags referring to parts with identical
position or shipping number are arranged to form a common flag.
The insertion points mustn’t exceed the maximum
distance to form a group.
Distances – The maximum distance up to which identical parts can be
arranged to form a group.
leader lines – A separate guideline to the flag is created for each
identical part of a group.
Count from Model
– If you have arranged position flags to form a
group, you can select which number of parts has to be displayed in the ‘Part
Number’ of the flag. Normally, the sum of the combined parts is inserted.
However, you can alternatively enter the entire number of all parts in the
model having this position number.
