2D Drafting problem to join two files in one

Hello I need your help please

 

I have two .prt files in master model

"-2D INSULA OPP-10-01"

(Conteins ITEM #003 & ITEM #030)

(2D data sheet file) 

 

"-2D INSULA OPP-10-02"

(Conteins ITEM #006,#010,#021,#210,#211)

(2D data sheet file) 

 

And I have the file:

#INSULA OPP-10 REV-03 180206 

Which conteins the 3D Model

 

I need to join all items in "-2D INSULA OPP-10-01"

(only one .prt file)

Hi @Tooling-Design,

 

I don't think that is going to be possible to merge the sheets of the two drawing parts into a single part.  The command to do this is "File > Export > Part", which has the option to export drawing sheets, however, as your views were inserted using "View of Part", versus views of the drawing or the master model, the views on the sheets are not exporting.  It's possible to tell that "View of Part" was used by looking at the Assembly Navigator:

The highlighted nodes above have drawing sheets behind a yellow cube (and the Info column has Part is Reference Only icons).  These represent "drafting components" that were introduced when a view of a component was added on to a drawing sheet by selecting the component from the list of parts on the Base View dialog (from which the views are imported from).  Had the views been added from the drawing part itself, or the master model, and then "Hide Component in View" used (to leave all but the one component to be dimensioned) then "File > Export > Part" would have worked.

Ok I understood

 

So, The process that I have to folow to dimension one component is:

 

OPTION 1

 

1.- To Add a view from the drawing part itself, or the master model.

 

2.- And then "Hide Component in View" used (to leave all but the one component to be dimensioned):

 

3.- Dimensions

 

??

 

Is this the best option?

 

Or

 

OPTION 2

 

Is it better to create a 2D file .prt for each component?
(This option creates a lot of files No good)

 

 

I preffer the option #1 but it seems extrange for me because I have to hide a lot of components to keep one,

And for each component I want to set propities in the title block for example its name, weight

Your steps are correct, but choosing which one to use is something you'll have to decide for yourself, though I'm sure the community will offer their pro's and con's for each process, along with whether you should add views from the drawing or the master model...

Hello 

Ok Than you

I cheked the process yesterday

 

I think that both process have many areas of opportunity to be better

 

I just want to have the control of the 2D Drawing for all components

in only one .prt file as Solid Edge works but it's too difficult on NX
