Flexibility in assembly


New member
I want to make an assembly which is used in others assemblies. Some parts of this assembly have different position in the other. So I would define flexibility for this part, but not with dimension, only with position. Is there anybody knows how do it?

It's called Family Tables in Pro Engineer. 2001: Family Tab command from the menu manager. WF: Tools > Family Tables.

You can get a lot of the information on the process elsewhere (Pro E help, articles), but in essence, in the Family Table you'll specify assembly constraints (e.g., offset dimensions) as the columns, and your rows will be the different configurations (called instances).
