Virtual components

Top  Previous  Next

Virtual components are good for adding quantities of paint or solder or padding ext. They appear in the BOM. They can only be inserted into an assembly, not into a part.

 

You create them like this:

 

Create-a-virtual-component

 

They have that white cube icon in the assembly.

 

Now here is how you can set the component to hold data about weight (for example). Create a user parameter which contains the data you need, then...

 

Modify-a-virtual-component

 

Now the component will appear in the BOM like this:

 

Virtual-Component-In-BOM

 

If this does not work in your situation you can also try this technique.
