I have a question regarding automating parts and families

, let's say I have 100 columns with unique nodes for each of them, then I want to apply part A for each of them. can I generate a function or expression that will apply part A for all of them considering a unique feature for them? for example their name, material...etc

it would be easier than dragging a line for each node of them.

  • Hello Abdelrahman,

    I tried your example with some unique point nodes. I have used the following function.

    function ( )
    {
        Node[] a = Nodes(n=> n is Point && n.XTranslation ==100);   // Select all point nodes that have XTranslation equals to 100
        for (int i = 0; i < a.Count; ++i)
        {
         SetPropertyValue(a[i], 'Part', 'Point');   //set property 'Part' equals to value 'Point'
        }
        
        return a;
    }

    Update the model after running the function. Let me know if this works for you.

  • Thank you for giving me a start point: it helped but I made some adjusments

    function ( )
    {
        Node[] a = Nodes(n => n.Name.StartsWith('slab'));   // Select all  nodes names that start with slab
        for (int i = 0; i < a.Count; ++i)
        {
         SetPropertyValue(a[i], 'Part', watch1);   //set property 'Part' equals to value 'part name'
        }
        
        return a;
    }
