Export tree structure

Just wondering... is there a way to exort the complete tree structure to an exel or other type of file where you have all number (parts/assys) and their level where they are in the structure?

I'm not getting there with a multilevel report?

I want a file (exel) that looks like if you would have expanded all assys in your tree on top level

Help me!

Preferred in windchill, not Creo

Re: Export tree structure

Or model structure report.... how you name it:

A complete structured overvieuw how everything is built up.

Like the modeltree we have/use in out interface, very handy, very handy to use in creoview too

But how to save it, to use elsewhere, should (MUST) be possible

But I don't have that option in my Windchill? What am I missing here?

No one, anyone?

Re: Export tree structure

Hi,

On your screenshot above I can see you are looking at the CAD Document structure (your Creo assembly and part structure). The documentation you refer to e.g. https://www.ptc.com/images/cs/articles/2013/01/20225346_ovas.jpg is about the Part Structure. Parts and CAD Documents are different object types that you can use to form two parallel structures in Windchill.

The reason for having both Parts and CAD Documents is that they serve different purpose. CAD Documents focus on you Creo modelling of the products and the responsibility of the Parts is to reflect your complete BOM. This gives you the freedom to not model everything in CAD e.g. glue etc that you still need to account for in your BOM.

There is an auto-associate button in your workspace to easily create Parts in a 1-to-1 fashion from your CAD objects.

You do not specify which Windchill version you are on. I think Parts are not available in the recently introduced 'Windchill Essentials' edition. Also availability of features is of course subject to how access rights is set up in your local environment.
