Adding Collision Rules to the List

To add a new rule, you add an empty row to the list, then specify both the components and whether they can collide or not.

  1. In the Scene, Mechanism or Assembly editor, right-click in the Explorer panel and click Insert > Collision Rule Container.

    The list of rules appears in the Property panel. You can also create addition Collision Rule Containers to organize the collision rules.

  2. Click the Add Rule button.

    An empty row appears at the bottom of the list.

  3. Click the Browse button in the cell you want to connect.

    The Select dialog box appears.

  4. From the Explorer panel, click the component you want to add to the rule.

    The name of the component now appears in the Select dialog box.

    For extensions, you must also specify the group. Not all extensions are defined with groups. If a group does not appear in the drop-down list, you cannot specify this extension in your rule.
  5. Click the Confirm button on the Select dialog box.

    The name of the component now appears in the rule entry.

    If you would like to see the component's property page, hover over its name and click the Jump button. The Property panel displays the properties for the component. To return to the Collision Rules click the Return button on the Property panel:
  6. Associate a different component to the other cell in the rule entry using the same method.

  7. By default, new rules have collision enabled. To disable collision for these components, uncheck the Collide option.
