Using Custom families with Auto Sleeve

If you would like to use your own sleeves for automatic sleeve placement, there are a few parameters that must be included in order for compatibility with the commands.

Be sure to use the shared parameters from the eVolveSharedParameterDefintion file from Resources to apply these parameters to families.

  • eVolve_SubCategoryId = Use the value “Auto Sleeve – Round”. This affects the available oversizing options for the sleeve.
  • Sleeve_Nominal_Diameter – Control the width of the sleeve.
  • Sleeve_Length – Controls the length of the sleeve.
  • Sleeve_Status – Will write the chosen default status of placed sleeves from Sleeve Settings

AutoSleeve Rectangular Required

  • Sleeve_Length– Controls the length of the sleeve.

It is not recommended to edit eVolve families. If you desire to edit the families in order to have a starting point please save out a copy to prevent any unforeseen problems.
