Does anyone have any tips on establishing a drawing template configured to automatically create drawing sheets based on the assembly and part names? I have an assembly structure on Windchill that i want replicated in the form of individual drawing sheets in one drawing, and preferably have the corresponding active model set and maybe a top view in the center.
I am unfamiliar with any methods besides mapkeys (which I have not been able to achieve my goal with), my main software of expertise is NX, which mainly utilizes Excel sheets and even a VBA macro recorder for automating tasks.
Any ideas or help with my challenge would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
This is definitely possible with Pro/TOOLKIT (or Object Toolkit). Mapkeys would "help" get you to a half-way solution... but to get the "click-of-a-button" type solution that you are looking for, you would definitely need some customization.
Do you know if you currently have access to licenses for either? Either way, - CadActive has a lot of expertise working with automation such as this and would be able to help you define/develop a solution such as this.
As mentioned, you are going to have to create (or buy) some customization. This can definitely be done with SmartAssembly. It looks like you could also do this fairly easily with Nitro-CELL.
