Adding Attachments

Each system and assembly has a list of attachments that connect it to other systems or assemblies. These are listed on the Attachments tab. You can modify an attachment by highlighting it in the Attachments list and using the entity collector to the right of the list.

  1. From the Project Browser, select a system or assembly.
    The Systems/Assemblies panel is displayed.
  2. Select the Attachments tab.
  3. Click Add.
    The Add an Attachment dialog is displayed.
  4. Specify a label and variable name.
  5. Select the attachment entity from the drop-down menu.
  6. Select Single only or Pair or single for Type.
    Note: Certain entities cannot be modeled in pairs so these options may be disabled.
  7. Optional: Enter any notes.
  8. Click OK to close the window or Apply to continue creating entities.
    The new attachment is added to the list.
  9. Click the collector associated with the created entity and make your selection in the modeling window, or double-click the collector to display the Model Tree (from which the desired entity can be selected).
  • To specify a tag for the attachment, click in the Attachment Tag field and enter a tag string.
  • Delete an attachment by selecting it from the list and clicking Delete.
  • Modify an attachment's properties by selecting it from the list and clicking Edit.
