I have an assembly 12 sheet assembly drawing with every type of information in it (Dimensions, GD&T, Notes, Welding signs, tables etc.), and i want to automate it. For this, i envisage 2 options;
1- To have a template, that is, to create the assembly model in Teamcenter first, then create an assembly drawing that is associated with this model, and when a new design is needed,
Save as (Clone) the template assembly
Make changes by updating expressions
update the drawing
status the parts and the drawing
Can this drawing update be done with Coding? When something is added, is it possible that a code would go and find the missing dimensions, GD&T and whatever, and put them in? Could it be that smart?
2- Second method is to create everything from scratch. I know the assembly model can be created with some sort of a Journal, but to date, i have not seen a code that can generate a drawing from scratch, unless it is a very simple drawing like a prismatic shape.
I am talking about many sheets of drawing with GD&T and tables, and notes and a lot of stuff. Could you share your views?
