iLogic Tutorial From Autodesk – 04

Rename the Assembly Components

The components that have been added to the assembly so far are listed in the model browser. Presently the components’ names are the same as the file names that they reference. We are going to change the component names in our assembly so that they better reflect their purpose, and to remove the iPart member identification.

The reason we need to do this is because if an iLogic rule is referencing a component name, and that component name changes due to an iPart member change, the component name will be out of date
in the rule, causing the rule to fail to execute properly.
