iLogic Tutorial From Autodesk – 09

Add Assembly Control Parameters

Since this is a new assembly document, we need to add some parameters using the iLogic Parameter Editor. For the following steps, open the iLogic Parameter Editor.

Create Parameters to Control Port Sizes

  • Create a new parameter named “port_a_size”
  • Set its type to User
  • Set its unit to in
  • Make it a Multi-value list, with the values: 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, 2.00, 2.50, 3.00
  • Make it a key parameter

Repeat the above to create 2 more parameters: port_b_size and port_c_size.

iLogic Parameters Editor

Create Parameters to Control Component and Block Type

Create a parameter called component_type

  • Set the type to String
  • Create a Multi-Value list of: standard, custom
  • Set the Multi-Value list to standard
  • Make this a Key Parameter

Create a parameter called block

  • Set the type to String
  • Create a Multi-Value list of: tee, elbow
  • Set the Multi-Value list to tee
  • Make this a Key Parameter

Create Parameters to Control Component Part Numbers

Create 7 additional parameters. For each, set the type to String, and the value to 1. Call these:

  • port_a_union_part_number
  • port_b_union_part_number
  • port_c_union_part_number
  • port_a_screw_part_number
  • port_b_screw_part_number
  • port_c_screw_part_number

Your entire set of new parameters should look like this:
