Fix/Float command

Fix/Float command is not showing the current state of the mode. That means if it shows “Fix” model is float, if it shows “Float” model is fixed. Is there any reason for that?

Re: Fix/Float command

Your first part of an assembly is 'fixed' when you insert it into the graphics area by default if that's what you are looking at?

Re: Fix/Float command

You have not included browser shot showing the current state - the only thing you have shown is command to change current state.

 

If you can't figure it out - attach your assembly here and someone will demonstrate.

 

Browser Info.png

The browser indicates the Punch Base fixed (f) symbol.

Therefore the only logical operation would be to Float.

 

The browser indicates that Punch Bushing is not fully constrained by the ( - ) symbol, the logical operation could be Fix.


The browser indicates that Column Rev1 is fully constrained (no (f) symbol, no ( - ) symbol, therefore Float would not make logical sense, but Fix could make logical sense.  Think in binary terms of 1 or 0.

Re: Fix/Float command

Am I not the only one that thinks one of the words ought to start with a different character? Say Fixed or Movable? This one interupts your train of thought every time!

Re: Fix/Float command

Maybe they could use something like "default" to indicate that the part is what should be formerly fixed.
