Design X Feature Tree Management

Post by Drew_Parker » Mon Feb 06, 2017 9:12 pm

Have been using Design X for almost a year now and its always bothered be that you cant (or I don't know how) manage/organize the feature tree. Anyone have any tips?

Hi Drew

Unfortunately you are correct in that there is no options for organising the history tree into folders, this is because it heavily relies on parent/child setups. You can rename sketches and features to make them easier to find and give a better indication of what each functions is doing. I can make a suggestion to 3D systems for this to be added but for now I think your best bet is a good naming system.

Regards

Patick

Thanks for the input. I do rename my sketches and features. Every time a modification is made to a feature Design X automatically renames it, which is frustrating. Oh well, I guess I will just have to deal with it for now. Thanks again!
