Hi All

 

I've dicovered that making user parts is a very very good tool.

The problem I have yet to solve is how to weld the parts to a column, beam etc and then show those parts on the meember the shop drawing.

I can show how to create the type of user parts to use to help productivity.

Tony,

 

How is the "user part" created?  I can't get one done.

 

Regards,

Ted

I have tried with very simple solids and can't get one created that will insert.  The file is created, I can have DWG files associated with the models and views, but it won't insert anything.  It inserts the standard user parts that came with ASD just fine, like bolts and such, but I can't create my own.

 

Doeas anyone have handrail brackets I could maybe use!?

This method worked for me, even with complex and multiple objects.
