Manage eVolve Properties


Before using the command, its important to know how eVolve Properties work. If you have not already done so, its highly recommened you first read ....

Finding the Command

The command is easily found under the Settings dropdown in the eVolve Mechanical Ribbon.

Using the Command

The command is designed for users to be able to easily add or remove evolve fabrication parameters while having them maintain the same guid. This allows you to not only quickly customize what parameters you want in your individual project, but also easily change your mind if need be.

Shared Project Parameters Grid

The avaible list of parameters inside the grid is pulled from the eVolveMechanicalSharedDefinitions file located in your SharedParameter File location set in Workstation Settings. These parameters are created by eVolve when it encounters any new fabricaotin part properties in your models.

There are a few actions to control these inside of your project.

  • Active/Inactive - This allows you to control which shared parmeters you want in your project. Checked includes it as a project parmeter, and unchecked removes it.
  • User-Created - This provides insight as to whether you created this paremeter of it was made by eVolve.
  • Enable/Disable All - Allows you to quickly either check, or uncheck all parameters in the grid.
It is important to note that there are not the only eVolve related parameters in your model. There are others that are created from the SharedParameterDefinitions file in Resources that are not able to be controled here. These are relied on throughout the program and are important to keep for stability.

Import/Refresh Fabrication Parameters

Creates fabrication parameters for all drawn parts in the model.

Automatically create eVolve Property Parameters

This option allows eVolve to create new fabrication parameters as new ones are added to the model. This is important in order to build your list of aviable fabrication parameters. Though if you would rather you can simply open up a large model a

Delete eVolve Mechanical Parameters:

Allows user to remove all eM_ parameters and values in the current project. This will remove not only the ones found in the grid, but also those that were created by other shared paramter files.

This is important for if any fabrication properites were made while a user was pointed to another shared parameter file location.
