# Can arrangement selection be driven by expression in NX 12

## Can arrangement selection be driven by expression in NX 12

(OP)
so with 0 and 1, so if some expression value is 1 then one arrangement will be on and if value is -1 then another will be on.

### RE: Can arrangement selection be driven by expression in NX 12

I suggest
to check if there exist a
current arrangement term
an using it.

### RE: Can arrangement selection be driven by expression in NX 12

What I think you are asking is something like this :
Arrangement_1 = p53 = 1
Arrangement_Leftside = p53 = 8
Arrangement_simplified =>p53 = 5
Arrangement_only_outer = p53 = 12

Arrangement names, expression names and values only for illustration.

Such that if you changed the expression "p53" to 5, the NX Assembly would change to the "arrangement_simplified"

Correct ?

( a bit difficult to trace backwards but apart from that a nice idea.)

Tomas
