CAD document association to downstream wtPart

CAD document association to downstream wtPart

If a CAD document driven wtPart structure has an owner link to a Design view and then using BOM Transformer (aka MAPSB) and a new downstream view is created (Manufacturing) should we expect the downstream wtParts to have a Contributing image link to the CAD?

 

At the moment they have no association to the CAD.

And when revising the CAD Document and collecting the wtParts in Design view would we expect to also collect and revise the downstream wtPart (manufacturing) ?

Hi @LG_10096154 

In my opinion the answer is no,

 

Manufacturing view wtpart does not have direct link to CAD Model if Design view exists.

For change process there is a collecting function to collect downstream view wtpart  (not during revise).

For revision CAD designer should revise just CAD/Drawing/WTPart(Design), Transform user should care about Mfg view in MASPSB.

 

In some cases, you can link 3D model directly to Manufacturing wtpart with owner link, but Design should not exist.

In 12.0.2.5, I see the icons for collecting upstream and downstream.

Our business likes to keep both views in the same revision as they both use the same drawing. 

The only way we know without customization is to use Bom Transformer to see the equivalence link and we only have a few users with that access. To show the users what drawing revision is associated to the wtPart they want to have the .dwg file associated to the downstream view.
