Conditional Equations

Cobalt’s parametrics now contain equations for more complex and intelligent geometric constraints. This enables adding if-then-else statements to the parametric constraints bounding the upper and lower limits of geometry.

For example, a sketch has the dimensions: D2+D1x3.

If the maximum constraint of these dimensions is 20 and the minimum constraint is 1, then a conditional equation could be written:

If (D1x3≥20;20; If (D1x3≤1;1;D1x3))

This bounds the dimension at 1 and 20.
