Using Trelis Attributes

A typical scenario for using Trelis attributes would be as follows.

Construct geometry, merge, assign intervals, groups, etc. (i.e. normal Trelis session)

Enable automatic use of attributes using the command:

Set Attribute On 

Export ACIS file (see Export Acis command).

Subsequent runs: 

Enable automatic reading and actuating of attributes:

set attribute on  

Import ACIS file (see Import Acis command)

Used in this manner, geometry attributes allow the user to store some data directly with the geometry, and have that data be assigned to the corresponding Trelis objects without entering any additional commands.
