Automation for assemblies
One of my company's products is a modular roof-edge solar installation. For each project, we line the roof (flat roof, think top of an apartment building) with our solar units using a small handful of configured parts. First, the base unit assembly is defined by things like solar panel size and angle of installation. Then this unit is replicated to fill the roof edges and corner units are added. The goal is to semi-automate this process using FeatureScript, but we're struggling to figure out a way to do this without using assemblies. Derived parts might work, but it would be a shame to lose the clear hierarchy of assemblies.
So, is there any way FeatureScript can be used with assemblies? Or is there any equivalent script/automation tool for assemblies? Will there ever be?
