|This task shows you how to instantiate a 2D component you previously referenced in a catalog.|
|Performing this task assumes that you have already created a component catalog using the Interactive Drafting workbench. For more information, refer to Creating a Component Catalog in the Interactive Drafting User's Guide. To enable you to perform this scenario, a component catalog sample is provided.|
|Create a layout and a projection view. You will be using the Detail1.catalog document.|
Click the Browse another catalog option from the Catalog Browser dialog box and open the Detail1.catalog document (from the \online\cfyugsm_C2\samples\Drafting directory).
Double-click Bolds chapter from the chapter tree.
Click Special K10 from the list available.
Double-click Special K10 from the list.
Link with detail: instantiate a 2D component. The component instance is linked with its reference in a catalog.
By default, this icon is activated.
Expose: instantiate and expose a 2D component. The component instance is not linked to its reference in a catalog, but to an identical 2D component reference in a detail sheet.
Explode: instantiate and explode a 2D component. The component instance is not linked to its reference, so behaves as independent geometry and annotations.
Fixed together: instantiate and explode a 2D component, and apply a fixed together constraint to the geometry elements.
Change component origin: define another point in the view.
Change component angle: define the angle in the view.
Flip component horizontally: rotate horizontally the 2D component instance.
Flip component vertically: rotate vertically the 2D component instance.
Angle: define a value for the angle.
Scale: define a value for the scale.
Click at the location where you want to position the 2D component instance in the layout view. The 2D component instance is created.
If needed, use the displayed manipulators to scale the instance, or move the instance by dragging it.
Repeat steps 4 to 7 if you want to instantiate additional 2D components from the catalog.
Click Close in the Catalog Browser dialog box when you are done.
