hallo we are working to start stopping 2D drawing for some parts, so all informations today in our 2d must be in the 3d We have a table above the drawing, with all informations about revsion, reason of modifications, dates and author in a .drw I just a table how can I have also this in the 3d in the annotate module? I tried with a Note but the tabulation is not easy thanks for your help regards Veronique
I'm afraid the only option is putting TAB character to align "columns".
Thanks for making me think about this. I don't have the full solution yet but I do think i can get you there. I did a quick experiment and created a Custom Symbol (see picture attached). You can sketch a table as a symbol and you can also add text to that symbol as I have shown.
The bit I can't quite remember how to do is to make the text as variables on the symbol (like you get with weld symbols etc)also you should try to get the insertion position to be repeatable so you can align the boxes well.
Ideally have one symbol that is your header with the description ID rev etc and another that you can add variable text to so you can enter each revs information.
I will work on this a little today as I think it will be worthwhile for many things in MDB that CREO/PTC just don't seem to be concerned with.
Also when inserting make Flat to screen, Symbol can be scaled to make it look ok for each part/assembly
Hope you follow my example.
See this youtube video of how to create symbols. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJrea53xtG8
Key is to have \text\ the backslash makes the text a variable in your symbol. just draw some lines on a grid to create your boxes and then populate your text.
I have added my version (could be a bit tidier, but shows the principal)
Sorry I cannot help you on the other issues.
I don't think Step supports combined states it's essentially a dumb block with some parameters if configured that way, so you will be very restricted there.
On PVZ files I'm a bit rusty but you need to use rcpedit.exe to define the exported features. Good luck with that too.
