LPub3D 2.0 Released


RE: LPub3D 2.0 Released
(2016-08-15, 6:52)Merlijn Wissink Wrote: Sometimes a model uses the same submodel multiple times, but not all in the same step. However, LPub always displays the submodel/callout for the total amount that it's being used in the model.

Merlijn - I have updated LPub3D behaviour to display the submodel instance count reflecting only the number of instances used in the parent step. However, note that there is an efficiency tradeoff to this change in the form of more redundant steps in your instructions.

For example, if I have 4 occurrences of a submodel in a 3-step model file and I consume 2 in step 1 and 1 each in steps 2 and 2, under the previous behaviour, you would indeed see 4 occurrences of the submodel on its last page - displayed while in parent step 1. The efficiency here is that for step 3 and 3 you will not again enter into the sub model's page(s) on the instructions because all 4 occurrences were already communicated to the user. LPub3D handles this by designating the submodel as being 'rendered' at the first occurrence for the entire model file.

For the new behaviour, the submodel is designated as 'rendered' at the first occurrence only for the step in which it is consumed. So subsequent occurrences in the same step will not enter into the submodel page(s). With the new behaviour, as LPub3D would only communicate 2 occurrences consumed in step 1, it will now be necessary to enter into the submodel page(s) on each step a submodel is consumed. This behaviour will not only communicate the remaining occurrences but it will also compel the user to navigate again and again the submodel's page(s).

For small models this may not be an issue but for large models or models where a submodel is large and used in many steps, the instructions will be overwhelmed with redundant information.

To balance this tradeoff, I have added an option switch under Project Setup to enable or disable the consolidation of submodel occurrences at the first occurrence of the submodel (by parent model of course) in the instructions.

Cheers,
