ProE Tutorial: How to create parameter for Pattern feature / sampling

Step for reproduce: How to create parameter for Pattern feature / sampling

  1. Step 1:

    Create model with holes (sampling-tool in 2 directions (ex. 5 right and 3 up=15))

  2. Step 2:

    Set custom name for dimensions
    a. Select dimension
    b. RMB > Properties

  3. Step 3:

    c. Select Tab Dimension Text and set custom name > Confirm OK

  4. Step 4:

    Apply your custom names for all dimensions for Pattern feature

  5. Step 5:

    Select Tools>Relations…

  6. Step 6:

    Create new relation: Sum_of_holes=Number_of_holes_01*Number_of_holes_02 (where Sum_of_holes is new parameter into drawing) and confirm OK

  7. Step 7:

    Create drawing and drawing view with dimension (You can use Show and erase functuionality)

  8. Step 8:

    For diameter dimension of hole change the text to: (see the pictures)

    &SUM_OF_HOLES – convert parameter to drawing note
    [.0] – set zero decimal placement for parameter
    @D – system create real number for dimension

  9. Step 9:

    Confirm OK

  10. Step 10:

    Note: if you change the number of hole for Pattern feature - system will change the information in the drawing automatically – parameter SUM_OF_HOLES is driven by relation
