Revision block

Hi..

 

 

When I created the drawing templates for my company I used a temporary fix for the revision block. I marked the revision table as title block as well. It's a simple table with values we have to put in manually:

As you can probably tell this isn't the most convenient way for drawings with more than 3 revisions. I've searched the forums and I've come across macro's and such to implement a more user-friendly way for a revision block. I hope creating macro's isn't the only way to realise this. In AutoCAD it was relatively easy to create a dynamic block that would allow more revision lines in the table:

Note that we are not using teamcenter, and all information is stored in the drawing/model.

Just for the issue of adding rows, I leave our revision block as a tabular note, and NOT add it to a Titleblock object.

 

Note I do have some API to aid the filling in, so in the drawing templates it is just one row (plus the header)

Kind of like adding a parts list table to the drawing? Only it's set up as a revision block?

When you say "parts list" I am thinking a PL where all the fields get automatically populated based on the assembly structure.

 

My rev block is just a "dumb" tabular note - i.e. the user has to enter the text in every cell (hence why I use an API program to help the user out).
