Re: save file bug

It was the revision index indeed. Thank you!

Will save new revisions using revision index from now on. Seems like best practice.

save file bug

There is one library file, with which save file doesn't work properly. When I try to "save" TopSolid doesn't save, but opens the "save as" window, and suggests to save it as a previous version.

Any suggestions?

So now that I've finally found a workaround for my 3...

link parameters

I know this way: - add parameter in sub-assembly - make it a driver - create same parameter in intended top-assembly - use existing parameter (automatic) on import, or manually add when names differ. But when a sub-assembly is already added, how do I connect sub-assembly parameters to top-assembly p...

deactivation of subsets

I'm working on a closet with a variable amount of bodies (1-4) All of the bodies are in different in-place subsets. I seem only to be able to deactivate specific assemblies, and deactivating an assembly does not seem to effect nested assemblies. In order of prefference I would like to know: 1 - Is t...

Re: library verification error: "file outside any library"

Hi Todd,

Thank you for your reply. My example wasn't meant to be specific though, because this appears to be the case for all referenced files.

Good to know though. It seems worth considering storing these tools on a shared drive.

Re: Why should we bother providing feedback?

Won't you look at that.

It's almost the half year anniversary of me stating that "giving feedback to Missler feels like talking to a wall"...

How meta.

Ok, so i got the documentation, which describes how to implement drawers, and automatically get the correct drawer runner and machinings when the drawer length changes. What I want to know though, are the basic principles behind supplier code and .cat files. Which I find hard to deduce from the draw...

Re: Expressions, how they really work

fair point, the expressions available are quite limited and sometimes you're going to have to make do. If the num values are only ever 1 or 0 you could replace num_1==1 with just num_1 and keep the same functionality. Personally I would probably split this up in two and something like this: chosen_p...
