Okay… put the TabGen-055-alpha-fix-1 into real use for the latest project.
Big time savings.
One thing that I might have been doing wrong, (or I’m not sure how it’s supposed to work with a parametric change), is that after I changed some of the starting parameters for the box size, the tabs didn’t update automatically in the final model.
Are they supposed to? (If not, that’s fine. I just need to make sure I understand what parameters are being impacted. Oh, and I did not have the Disable Parametric box checked when I did it.)
Well, heck. Now it’s updating them. Swear to God, I had to re-create two of them this morning…now it’s working fine.
I’ll see if I can duplicate it…maybe it was the order things were created before.
Okay…there it went… apparently shrinking a parameter is okay…expanding it is not.
Tabs created and cut out.
Parameter change - reduced width - everything still okay - tabs recalculated.
Parameter change - expanded depth measurement. Tabs did not recalculate, and slots popped up.
If it’s not supposed to be used that way just let me know. I wasn’t sure if anyone else was trying to test parametric boxes.
