Adding different parts to one drawing

Hi, I am trying to create a drawing for a customer for three separate parts, but I need to have part 1 on sheet 1, part 2 on sheet 2 and part 3 on sheet 3.  The parts are not an assembly and are in no way connected to each other, other than they are for the same customer project.  They are 3 separate models/parts/files but I want to combine into one drawing file so they show as a series of drawings as sheet 1-3, not 3 separate drawing files.

The 3 files are all saved in the same project folder.

Can this be done?

For now, just make a new assembly file with the three parts and then make a drawing of that assy. You can then hide non-relevant parts on each page. Another approach would be to create PDFs with a manual page number and just combine with a tool like Adobe.

Yes, that would work for this job, but what if I had 15 parts or 50 parts?

I don't want to add 50 parts to an assembly and then try to split them up for the drawings.

Or try to make 50 individual drawings and then combine using Adobe.

It really should be easy to add in another component to a drawing sheet without making it one assembly.

No doubt... But for now this is the workaround. Drawings are definitely a progressive area of development for Fusion, but this just isn't available yet.

Thanks for your help.

I'll work with this for this project.

Hopefully they improve the drawing functionality in future updates

Hi @contactE874N 

 

Every customer request that we get, from meetings, emails, forum posts etc. gets collected and categorised in our feature request database. This information is used to prioritise the features that we build next. I've added your request to our database. We are starting to see more interest in "Multi-Asset" workflows, keep an eye on the roadmap (https://bit.ly/2DRoadMapFusion), this is something that we may consider adding in the future.
