This task shows you how to update bundle segments to take
into account changes to supports created in a different geometrical bundle.
- When creating supports, certain
rules must be respected.
- Ensure options when
working in workpackage mode are correctly set.
Make sure you are connected to ENOVIA V5 through VPM
Search ENOVIA data for the geometrical bundle of
Load documents containing supports linked to the
Update Bundle from
|All bundle segments under the active product are checked.
Update Bundle from Moved Support dialog box appears.
This dialog box identifies bundle segments that can be updated as
well as any that cannot, indicating why. Reasons why include:
- Two instance names of the same support in the session
- Support not found
- Error occurring during bundle segment update, for example
because the publication of a support was renamed.
Click Close to get a status only with no
Click Apply to apply all pending updates
listed in the dialog box, and in our example, re-route the bundle segment
through the support.
Click Close when done.
To export a report in text format (.txt):
Click Export... in the Update Bundle from
Moved Support dialog box.
In the Export Report dialog box that opens:
Identify the folder in which you want to save your text
Enter a file name.
Click Open to export the report in text
The report contains the same information as displayed in
the dialog box.
Manually Updating a Link
You can manually update the bundle segment-to-support link by editing
the bundle segment route:
- Edit the appropriate branch.
The Route Definition dialog box appears. The support is identified as the
routed object in the Route Definition dialog box.
- Select the support in the dialog box.
This runs a query for the support which, if found and unique, is
highlighted in the geometry area.
- Click Replace and select the support again.
The bundle segment is re-routed through the support.
If the support is not found, or if it is not unique, the 3D label
identifying the original position of the support is displayed in red.
