Session id

Session id

Good morning,
I know that I can find the session id of a component in the Relations window.
What I don't know is, if I know the session id, how do I find the component it refers to?

Say I click on a note that includes a parameter, and I see that it reads
'NUMBER OF WIDGETS = &NO_OF_WIDGETS:220'

How do I find out which component has session id 220?

Random stabbing is the best I can come up with so far, but that is no good if the component is a sub-assembly.

Any ideas?


Thanks,

John

Add some text to the note that would grab a parameter with identifying information.

&partno:220
&descrition:220

I think you could even use a system parameter like &model_name:220.

I once created a table that had lines for something like 50 or 100 session IDs so I could display the PART_NAME parameter for each and figure out what part was what.  I used it for making manual BOM tables way back when Pro/Report for generating repeat region BOM tables was a separate license that we didn't have.

In the Model Tree, turn on the ID field.

I think that's only feature ID, I don't think session ID can be displayed in the model tree.

Add the attached note to the drawing to find session ids.


Perfect trick, thanks a lot!

this is a really good trick to get all SessionID's of an assembly quickly and at a glance.

Thank you, it saves a lot of clicks and time.

That is a SLICK trick right there!



I’ve done this a number of different ways like previous posts, but that’s
pretty dog-gone simple, at the end of the day…
