Forcing assembly regeneration

wali

New member
I am using WF2 and I have been correcting densities in an assembly to show the correct mass in the model tree.


Changing density does not automaticallyregeneration the part. At part level, I drag the first datum plane past the second in the model tree and the part regenertaes to reflect the correct mass.


This trick does not work at assembly level.


How can I force a regeneration to update the mass?


Thanks

You must set this 2 options in config.pro :


mp_calc_level set to all_models
mass_property_calculate set to automatic


Then when regenerating assembly it will automatically regenerate and recalculate mass.

Thanks Isair - Problem solved.


I wrote a map key for allocating density, which saves time.
