The Range Growth Value and Offset values determine the range of the family from which you must pick the copy candidates. The technique for using Range Growth Value depends on the type of family with which you are working.

Similar Standard Family

If you create a similar standard family with F1 as the source and F4 as the target, the software maps F1 to F4.

If you specify a default Range Growth Value of 0.8, then the range of the family extends from the source frame -0.8 to the source frame + 0.8

Similar Overlapping Family

To create a similar overlapping family you must have at least one frame in common between the source and the target. For example, you could create a family with F1 and F3 as the source and F3 and F5 as the target. In this case, F3 is the common frame. The software then maps F1 to F3, F2 to F4, and F3 to F5.

If you specify a default Range Growth Value of 0.8, Smart 3D sets the range of the family from the minimum source frame value - 0.8 to the maximum source frame value + 0.8

Symmetry Family

If you create symmetry with port as the source with five positive frames and starboard as the target with five negative frames, Smart 3D maps L-1 to L1, L2 to L-2, L -3 to L3, L-4 to L4, and L-5 to L5.

If you specify a default Range Growth Value of 0.8, Smart 3D sets the range of the symmetry family from the centerline + 0.8 to infinity.

Across Models Standard Family

If you create an Across-Models Standard Family with F1 as the source and F4 as the target, Smart 3D maps F1 to F4. This behavior is the same as creating a standard family within a model. The software also maps the X and Y axes in an Across Models Family. If you specify a default Range Growth Value of 0.8, Smart 3D sets the range of the family from the source minimum frame value - 0.8 to the source maximum frame value + 0.8.
