iPart Workflow and Vault - generate all or generate only new

Hello Everybody,

 

We are using iPart - iAssembly workflow with Inv-2013 and  Vault Basic 2013

 

My question is related to released state of iparts. Currently we are generating/ releasing

all the iparts when new member is added in order to manintain the parent child version relationship

 

Example  : say i have a ipart 41020.ipt and i have members 41020- 001 ~ 008 . I check out the parent

from Vault and add 009 member to it.

Question :

Do I have to generate all and check those in to maintain the version relationship between the child and parent inside

Vault 2013 ?
 Or

Only generating 009 will maintain version relationship inside Vault 2013

 

Thanks

I understand its a pretty basic question

but is there any explanation for this.

 

Does Vault Basic 2013 take care of the revision and member update by it self

 

or

 

We have to force the relation by generating all members ?

 

Please help me understand this basic concept

 

Thanks

You only need to generate 009, and check in the factory file. The version relatioinship between 41020- 001 ~ 008 are still maintained.

 

Vault basic only have version, the factory file are linked to latest version of member files in vault.

 

Hope this help

not sure about 2013 version, but up to 2012 the relationship remains. However, if making drawings from your iparts, you will get the message that the member files of 1 - 8 are out of date as you have modified the factory. You then need to open each drawing manually, manually check out the generated factory member, and regenerate the file.

 

I don't understand why inventor cannot do this automatically though, as it knows what needs to be done. It asks if the dwg file should be checked out, but leaves the corresponding factory member as it is...

 

Best regards,
