using a Design Table

Hi all


I am creating a guarding system made of similar panels.


i have been advised that a design table may be benificial.


i have created a master panel. With a parameter for panel number (linked tothe part number)and a parameter for the width of the part, both of these are linked to a design table. when i change the table the part changes fine.


now what do i do with the part to put it into an assembly?


is it possible to have different variations of the same part in the same assy?


or do i have the wrong end of the stick with all of this?

You can save each configuration as a part or even better create a catalog.
...then you can insert them in any assembly

Thanks for the reply


i have sorted it now. as a panel consisted of a product i could not use a catolouge.


also each panel would be unique in width so there was no reuse of panels, plus it would have caused problems if i needed to change a part of one panel.


instead i created a Design table of a product with variable width only. placeing a new from into the assembly.
