REUSE LIBRARY -DRAFTING

Can anybody help?

 

While defining  the object in reuse library, is it possible to define the drafting of the object also?

If drafting of the object is not avbl in the reuse library, then  after using the object in a part file,we will have to do the complete drafting from scratch. Reuse library was the best option when we need to use the same part (ex. bolts & nuts) in different files, but problem is with the drafting side.

As there is 2D Section Library is available for standard shapes like structural I shape,L shape. You can add custom section for nut,bolt etc. Drag them from Reuse library and change the dimensions to vary shape as per the requirement.

Product Templates (created with Product Template Studio) can have associative parametric drawings associated with them, and these drawings can be automatically copied and updated as Product Templates are consumed.

 

For Part Families (more common for fasteners) it's somewhat common to create one drawing per family, with tabular dimensions listing all family children, and then just specifying the part number.

 

Does that help?
