First if this topic has already been discussed I apologize for asking it again...
In our company if we put a component in 5 different assemblies, we want that component to have the same item number no matter where it is in the parts list. In addition we group components to have a special item number... Meaning hardware like washer, bolts, and etc. to start with 500 series number.. Piping components would be 800 series...
Is there a way to do this in ILOGIC/VB?
I have a similar requirement which i discussed with autodesk some time ago.
It is not possible to manipulate the item number object via ilogic or the API unfortunately.
Thanks... I figured that was the answer because I couldn't find anything in my search for this type of code.. I kind of have a semi-automatic method where my iLogic problem does a BOM export into an excel spreadsheet, locates all duplicate parts and assigns the correct item number. From there I paste/copy the item number cell from the spreadsheet into the BOM view/dialog box in Inventor. Clunky but it works..
