Attach Drawings to Published Assets, For Asset Detailing

Status: Gathering Support
by Collaborator petestrycharske on ‎03-08-2017 02:39 PM

All,

 

Good afternoon!  I would love an option to add a drawing file (IDW or DWG) to a published asset.  Ideally, I would like to create an asset (even an assembly asset) and be able to place views in a drawing, dimension and even add a Parts List.  When ready to publish the asset, I would like to add the drawing file as well as an NWC file, and the drawing file would automatically update, as the asset is modified inside an assembly.  Now when I create a layout, instead of having an entire BOM of all the parts, I could open up the drawing of a specific assembly asset and see its BOM and detailed drawing.  This would help with more assembly operations where users have to see how the assets are constructed (or send instructions to the final installer).  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Hope all is well and have a most blessed night!

 

Peace,

Pete
