Assembly Document Checks

On the Assembly Document Checks tab , click any of the following to add to the Build Checks requirements:

Component Material

Select the material database and the materials to evaluate the component.

Mate Error Warnings

Fixed Parts

  1. Select Exclude, List, Range, or a comparison symbol for the operator to evaluate the document.
  2. Type one or several comma-delimited values for the Number of fixed parts to evaluate.
For example, consider that you selected List and set the Number of fixed parts to 4, 7, 9, 12. When the document is evaluated, if the number of fixed parts is 4, the check passes. If the number of fixed parts is 5, the check fails. Conversely, consider that you selected Exclude and set the Number of fixed parts to 4, 7, 9, 12. If the number of fixed parts is 5, the check passes.

External References
