To create a table, PilotAssembly it is necessary that a document 3D either open in SOLIDWORKS.

We will take as example this assembly:

 

Initially, we will recover all information of this document while clicking on the button “To build the table.

 

The appearance of each line corresponds to the adjustments carried out in visual options.

One can see above a detail of recovery taken on the component ''flat washer regylar_arm'' (this posting is obtained while clicking on ''+''): 


Explanation of the colors of the lines:

  • Information of color ''Gray'' corresponds to the recovery of the properties of the file, if required and parameterized in visual options.
  • Information of color ''Yellow'' corresponds to the recovery of the parts, if required and parameterized in visual options.
  • Information of color ''Light blue'' corresponds to the recovery of the assemblies, if required and parameterized in visual options.
  • Information of color ''Blue cyan'' corresponds to the recovery of the constraints of assemblies, if required and parameterized in visual options.
  • Etc…


For each one of recovered information, it is possible to interact according to names of the columns:


 

 This column lists all recovered information of the assembly.

 This column lists the type of information recovered: component part, component assembly, property, dimension, constraint, function…

 This column lists and makes it possible to manage Visible” or “Nonvisible” state the “of the components.

 This column lists and makes it possible to manage Solved” or “Suppressed” state the “of a component in an assembly or a function in a part.

 This column makes it possible to control the dimensions of constraints of assembly, the dimensions of functions, the identifiers of the components, etc…

 This column makes it possible to control the configurations of the components (parts and assemblies).

 This column makes it possible to choose the lines which must be rebuilt (YES or not).


It is possible to save the options of reading of the entities by default (see To save).

 If a table were already created, if you click on the button “To build the table, that will have for effect to recreate a table and thus to reset all the cells which you would have modified.
