Help! I need an article that helps me to find what I want to find in Windchill faster.
For example: I want to find all parts that have keyword "Nut". I don't want to see all the models I just want to see the various drawings so that I can find the right size I need. However, windchill pulls up all 1500 models and exceeds the table limit and I cannot find what I need.
Also, how can I make search more powerful?
If I have the following library folder structure:
Is there a way I can create to create parameters and search for all nuts with a 1/4-20 thread and only search in the Nuts folder?
This is just an example, I understand that PTC has add-ons for fasteners, but I also want to be able other objects by parameters. For example. I have glass in different lengths and sizes. Is there a way that I can create parameters in my parts to search for all glass: tempered, width11-12").
Being able to find parts that are already being used instead of creating new glass parts for each application can save 1,000 of hours of design and purchasing time.
Please can someone help.

You should look at Windchill PartsLink for narrowing items down by parameters. This is exactly what it was designed to do:
You can search in a folder
