Parameter for level of assembly

Hi,

We are trying to introduce a parameter for level of assembly inside a part.

I try to utilize the report parameter &rpt.level of drawing inside part.

It doesn't work. Help me with a parameter to retreive level of assembly or a best practise for it.

We are going to use it for building a logic for part naming.

e.g. xx-yyyy-zz xx- level of assembly.

Re: Parameter for level of assembly

Hello Dhinesh,

I don't think it's doable to go backwards, and get a drawing repeat region to alter a parameter in one of the assemblies's parts.

Are you going to pull the level parameter from your part name, and try to put that into your repeat region afterwards?

Re: Parameter for level of assembly

What you are looking for is a parameter typically applied to indented Bills of Material. usually, this is not appropriate for intelligent part numbering parameters as this "level" can be different if used in a different assembly. Also, what do you determine to be the -top- level assembly which is usually considered level 0 or level 1. Again, typically the indented BOM "level" starts incrementally based on the queried level.

I also have not run across a Creo BOM report that reports indented bills of material. If someone had developed one, you would have that data in hand. I am sure WindChill has this capability in their extended report functions.
