1. Edit a part from the reference libraries

Edit part allows modifying the part geometrical properties by using the functions of Part Factory.

As all the parts from reference libraries are in Read only mode, before editing a part the user must copy it in a User’s library. A dedicated dialog box allows doing that quickly as it is shown below.

Edit a part from reference libraries
1 Selection of a reference library.
2 Selection of one part in the selected library. This part is displayed in the central area.
3 Click on the button “EDIT”.
4 As a part from reference library is considered, a dialog box opens which allows copying the selected part in a user’s library.
5 Give a name to the part.
6 Choose a user’s library in which the copied part will be stored.
7 Button to cancel the edited data of the part.
8 Button to apply inputs and edit the selected part.

Then, Part Factory is launched allowing the reading and/or the modification of the geometrical properties of the part.

2 Edit a part from User’s libraries

In this case, as the part is not in a Read only mode, its editing allows opening the part directly with Part Factory application through which read or/and modifying its geometrical characteristics is done.
