Summary

The Edit Project Variant dialog allows you to edit the properties of a variant.

Access

The dialog is accessed by clicking Edit Variant button in the Variant Management dialog after selecting an available variant.

Options/Controls

  • Description – enter an appropriate description of the Variant, which will be used as an identifying label.
  • Allow variation of fabrication outputs – check this box to allow variations of fabrication outputs (as well as assembly variation outputs).
    If an output job has a variant nominated for a fabrication output, and that variant does not have this option enabled, the job's variant name will be displayed in red. Note that the red variant name is simply a warning flag, and the variant-specific output files will still be generated.
  • Parameters – this region is a list of variant parameters (name and value). Parameters are added and edited via the Parameter Properties dialog.
  • Add – click to open the Parameter Properties dialog to add a parameter for the variant.
  • Remove – click to delete the selected parameter(s).
  • Edit – click to open the Parameter Properties dialog to edit a selected parameter.
