Qty of level of detail

103 Views, 3 Replies

I have a assembly with 2 level of detail1 (LOD1), level of detail2 (LOD2), and master.
LOD1 uses 3 part1
LOD2 uses 2 part1
I use the two level of details in the same drawing (idw) on different sheets.

Question: how can I show the exact qty of part1 of each of level of detail automaticly on different sheet?

Thanks in advance,

You can't... LOD is a memory management tool only to allow you to supress some parts to unload them from memory. It is not meant to be used inplace of creating a new top level assembly. Please look into iAssemblies instead of using LOD's.
Or provide more detail into why you are choosing to use LOD's instead of creating new part numbers for those different configurations.

I was trying to get him to better define what he is really trying to do before i told him you can't do it as a tabulated dwg. Just to make sure that is what he is trying to do.
