Generates parameters for a detail in order to easily change dimensions, angles, etc.
Make sure you run this command in the detail file and not in a project.
Detail files are saved in the folder, and its subfolders, which is defined by the DETAILSPATH system variable. By default this is C:\ProgramData\Bricsys\Details\.
Accessing the Command
The parameters and constraints can be edited in the Mechanical Browser.
BimCreateDetail - Creates a detail that can be saved in the library.
Parametrize - Adds constraints and parameters to pure geometric models.
ParametersPanelOpen - Opens the Parameters Panel.
ParametersPanelClose - Closes the Parameters Panel.
MechanicalBrowserOpen - Opens the Mechanical Browser panel.
SmParametrize - Creates a consistent set of 3D constraints for a selected sheet metal part. Recognizes rectangular array of holes on flanges.
DcAligned - Constrains the distance between two points.
DcAngular - Constrains the angle between two lines or linear polyline segments; the total angle of an arc or an arc polyline segment; or the angle between three points on entities.
DcConvert - Converts an associative dimension to a dimensional constraint.
DcDiameter - Constrains the diameter of a circle or an arc.
DcHorizontal - Constrains the horizontal distance (X-distance) between two points with respect to the current coordinate system.
DcLinear - Constrains the horizontal distance (X-distance) or vertical distance (Y-distance) between two points with respect to the current coordinate system.
DcRadius - Constrains the radius of a circle or an arc.
DcVertical - Constrains the vertical distance (Y-distance) between two points with respect to the current coordinate system.
