General Usage Instructions

It is only visible when a part or an assembly is active.

The "Assign" command is only available when a component is active.



Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description


For each different fit, color has to be assigned according to the company standard representations. This needs to be done only once. The definition is made in a dialog.


When creating holes in the part without assigning fits the command ‘Assign’ is carried out to apply a selected fit to the selected holes in the component. The hole’s casing surfaces are thereby dyed simultaneously corresponding to the assignment.


By calling command ‚Dye‘ all holes already provided with fits are dyed in accordance to the predefined mappings. If the functionality is launched from an open assembly, it acts on all of the components.
