Re: a2+ : partial update would save my life.

where is it supposed to update an external part (its *geometry*, not the constraints linked to it) The macro does not update parts. You select a part so the macro knows where to start solving constraints. If you have 100 parts and you know the first 97 are constrained correctly you can select part ...

Re: a2+ : partial update would save my life.

Edited See next post for Version2 update After some more testing I found that fixing the part by using the properties below the tree may be better than by fixing with the api. I also removed the auto selection because when you are adding constraints the base part keeps changing, so now you need to ...

Re: a2+ : partial update would save my life.

But, if beside the *global* recursive updating existed a function the user could use to choose a *unique* sub-assembly present into the panel, then launch a limited update to this target, it would be a huge improvement. Really. This idea is not that bad. I will put this to my todo list. fcaduser: U...

Re: A2Plus icons grey and not active

scratch head because the assembly items are grey You need to use the control key to select second part. Select first part hold down control key select second part The available choices for will then be enabled. I converted from the dark side and Solid Works For more of a SolidWorks style you can tr...

A2+ Icon for extra dialog stays grey.

When I use the extra dialog for the constraints and then close the dialog the icon stays grey out. To get the icon enabled I need to undo a command. Whether I create one or ten constraints only one undo is needed.
It works correctly in version 18. Stays grey in 19.

Re: A2plus constraints between parts that are A2plus assemblies themselves

2) In the model browser the coincident-face constraint shows up twice on the same level as the two parts that I want to link. When it was working one of the coincident-face constraints used to be a child of one of the related parts Flo, when I opened the model the parent child looked correct. The p...

Re: A2plus bench - constraints always greyed out

I just missed one tiny detail ......to use CTRL key when selecting. I think adding code so parts can be selected without the control key would be beneficial for: 1: New users who forget the key: 2: People who like myself has trouble using the control key. I'm trying to write some code for my use bu...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

Unit1, I found the problem I was having in this file. Unit1 I changed gears on displaying the constraints. I found you need to be able to see small movements to detect the movement in your model. The attached program puts the information into a table. As you move the mouse over the constraints name...
