Is it possible to use Arithmetic, Algebric, Trignometric and calculus functions and symbols in (Part / Assy) relations? Can the software recognize and understand these functions?

Here's a list of acceiptable functions in Pro/E relations from the online help:



cos (), tan (), sin (), sqrt (), asin (), acos (), atan (), sinh (), cosh (), tanh (), log(), ln(), exp(), abs(), ceil(), floor()



Where ceil & floor give the next integer above/below

Arithmetic, Algebric, Trignometric functions exist for relations, Calculus doesn't.



If you look hard enough, there are Java classes available that do calculus. I haven't tried it, but it is possible to create a J-Link class that will do calculus operations for you and return the results to a parameter.



Hope this helps.
