About Grouping Interference Detection Input
When working with large models, it is good practice to create groups to drag into the Input and the Exclusion lists for interference detection. You can organize groups in the following ways:
Create Static groups by adding parts from different assemblies to the input list.
Populate Dynamic groups automatically by attribute types.
Define Dynamic groups by creating an assembly hierarchy.
For groups that contain branch links, these branch links are automatically loaded when you start the interference detection:
Static groups—Required branch links only
Dynamic search groups—All branch links
After you perform interference detection, you can select a result and add it to the Exclusion list. In this way, you can exclude known and expected interferences, such as bolt-bracket pairs, from the Results list. You can also exclude all instances of the pair.
When you select a pair group to exclude, the prompt (Not Synchronized) appears next to the Annotation Set name in the graphics area. Recalculate the interference detection.
