We need an improvement in “grouping” at Creo Illustrate. When an SolidWorks assembly is imported, Creo Illustrate recieves each part and subassembly with a subsequential number for the quantity of instances in front of the name, as <xx>. This sequential number interferes a lot when grouping the quantities of componentes at the items list. I have to follow these steps for the grouping to work:
Step 1. To apply balloons in combined assemblies, select the option “Grouping” and poit the option “Compare names”;
Step 2. Select the combined assemblies and apply the balloons;
Step 3. To apply balloons in parts, choose the option “grouping” and point the option “Use structure instance creation”;
Step 4. Select the parts and apply the balloons;
The ideal would be to select all of the items, whether part or assembly, and ask to group the quantity for the files with identical names.
