Can I create a custom callout in Creo Illustrate that points to the ASM instead of a PRT?

Can I create a custom callout in Creo Illustrate that points to the ASM instead of a PRT?

Hi all,

 

Is there a way to edit my customized Creo Illustrate callout to point to the ASM part attributes instead of the PRT part attributes? I'm working with a model that has the connector number metadata that I'm attempting to target in the ASM (highlighted in structure) and not the PRT. Most of the models I work with have the connector metadata in the PRT file and my custom callout works fine. Is there a way to modify the XML to get this to work? Please see my annotation and screenshots below.

 

Thanks,

Tom

Tom, did you found a solution for this issue? I am looking for the same solution. Regards, Marc

Hi Marc,

 

I found a workaround but not a solution. My memory isn't the clearest, but essentially what I did to accomplish this was by highlighting the .asm and .prt in the BOM and editing the structure so that they're combined. It was good enough for what I was working on. I hope it helps you out.

 

Cheers,

Hi Tom, Thank you for the feedback, this sounds like a plan. What function of Illustrate I have to use to combine them - BOM restructure? Sorry, I am new on Illustrate. Regards, Marc
