|This task shows you how to create a parent-child relationship between two elements. This function can be used to create a relationship between resources, between a resource and an element like an area; or between products in a process. The example below uses electrical parts and robots. The procedure is the same for all types of objects and elements.|
|1.||Click the Attach button .|
|2.||Select the parent (or master) element.|
|3.||Select the child (or slave)
element. The attachment is created. If you move the child, the connection
between the two will remain; however, unlike a master-slave relationship,
the child element will not snap back to its original position. If you move
the parent the child will follow.
hide all the
Parent/Child symbols and text (attachments) in a product, click the Hide
Attachment button, then click the Product in the specifications tree. All
attachments in the product will disappear.
To hide individual attachments, click the Hide Attachment button, then click the object. The attachment will be hidden.
|If a local Attachment
is selected, e.g., an attachment between two elements in a product, only
that attachment is hidden or shown.
If a Product is selected you not only Hide/Show all attachments of the selected product but also all attachments to the children of the selected product.
If you open a product and don't know if there are existing attachments, click the Swap Visible Space button to reveal any attachments that may have been hidden.
|5.||To show all previously hidden attachments, click the Show Attachment button, then click the Product in the specifications tree. All attachments will be shown. To show a previously hidden "local" attachment, click the Show Attachment button, then click the object or select it in the specification tree. The attachment will be shown.|
