The Assemble, Domains & Blocks command requires selection prior to use. The selection should consist of either connectors or both connectors and
domains. Domains or blocks will be assembled from the selected entities. The type of domains or blocks created, structured or unstructured, is subject to the
state of the Grid, Set Type command. Note that the Assemble command may require significant time to
execute, depending on the entities selected.
The Assemble, Domains & Blocks command automatically assembles domains and/or blocks based on topology.
The Domains Blocks panel provides a few controls over the automated assembly logic. In the Entities to Assemble frame, you can choose
whether Domains Only should be created, or both Domains and Blocks. By default, Assemble is set to create both Domains and
Options in the Topology frame allow you to control how topology is considered for domain assembly. The Manifold check box, which is off by
default, allows connectors to only be used twice at most. The Solid check box assumes that all the
topology selected essentially forms a closed volume and will continue looking for domain loop paths where
all candidate connectors have only been used once. This option is on by default when
Domains and Blocks is selected for Entities to Assemble and off by default
if Domains Only is selected.
On the toolbar, the Assemble command’s functionality is available through the Assemble Domains
() or Assemble Blocks
() commands. The latter may also create domains if necessary. Neither of these commands opens a
panel, but they do employ the settings from your last use of Assemble, Domains & Blocks.
