Creo 4.0 V-Groove: does the cut prep exist in the part or the assembly?
If I apply a weld with a V or J-groove into a weldment, where does the cut/prep exist in the part or as an assembly cut or can I choose? It seams to default to the part and wouldn't I want that prep to exist as an assembly cut?. I want to use rectangle tubing but want that prep cut to exist in the assembly and not effect the part so I can use that same steel tube elsewhere as it may get a different prep for that one. Ideas, thoughts?
Maybe it is customary to include the prep work to the piece part even it that part is used elsewhere in the assembly. Im about to call a Caterpillar engineer friend and see how they do it there.
