Laminate configuration

Does "wood/configuration/laminate configuration" work?
I'm trying to use panel with edges and laminates as a standard component. I place this component into assembly and then I can modify material, edges and properties but options of laminate configuration are disabled.

Does it work?

we came across the same problem at the user conference last week.

we wondered if the faces and edges could be drivers too.?

I have a driver on the laminate thickness, like sometimes it has to be 0.5 mm, 1.0 and sometimes 2.0 mm.
When placing the component it asks ABS thickness.

What else do you want to change?

You have to set laminates as modifiable in the template of your part to be able to configure them when including them as standards.

Open the template and open the laminate configuration, then select whichever laminates you want to be able to change. Select your codification or manually choose any material and click "Set Modifiable In Assembly", then Apply.

Then you should be able to configure the laminates of that part however you want in any document you include it into.

Hope this helps,

Thank you!

It's not bad idea to ask smart people sometimes!
