Will it be delivered with some Standard libraries, bolts, nuts, etc.?
You do have it in a tab named "Library".Yes, but nothing to be considered comprehensive and all of it in ISO. It is less of a "standard parts library" and more of a "dynamic design generator" though it can certainly be used as a standard part library.
I also imagine that some folks on here will devote a nontrivial amount of time to making and sharing libraries of such standard parts.
Nothing says that the parameters you pick have to result in any change to the part - they could just be a scale parameter with data. I imagine that Value Driven could be setup to show such data on user selection of sizes. It wouldn't give you a birds eye view of the data though.I guess that as somebody who maintains more than 125 "Component Libraries" in "Spreadsheet Index" access format, my impression of this Feature does not leave me that "excited." I often include such data as "Shear Area" (in inches²/inch of engagement) for threaded entities as part of the "Selection Process." And presenting such information to the user is not apparent to me. Yes, I realize that (as first identified by Generic Software) there are the few -- and then there is Lew. -- Lew
Thanks David. One other question ... this allows you to have a single instance of a part in the library, so derivatives can be generated, i.e. I can get rid of my existing 'vast' pre-generated libraries ...Ranges are possible.
but is there any way to generate the part name? In this example the library parts would be a M22-271xx05, but the xx value needs adding based on the part generated (in this case the Pins parameter formatted to 2 digits with leading zeros!). Same if you use it for general fasteners, etc. or does it just add it as <new part>? and you then have to do the last 0.1% as a manual error prone process?
