Partlist in idw about Component only

Status: New Idea
by sbkim on ‎11-01-2012 05:32 PM

In Some Case, Part or assembly quantity is required in drawing about top assembly

Top Assembly drawing can place a partlist about all component

In component drawing can place only partlist about itself and quantity is 1

if i want to insert using component quantity about top assembly , i should place a top assembly partlist and change a visibility of not using component.

So i want place a partlist with quantity that is using a top level assembly

I see this question A LOT. The part files have NO relationship to know which of the parent assemblies they are used in.


How would you like to define which assembly the QTY is pulled from?

I think that the best way to fine relationship between part and assembly is relationship part and assembly
But there is no option for checking part used without Vault(where used)
So currently Partlist for part with qty about assembly is created with full assembly partlist and suppressed all part and component except part
I suggest a function that designate a assembly manually in part or component partlist there are used
