Auto callout in UGNX

[ Edited ]

Hello All,
Greetings!

I'm looking for a help on UGNX 10.0 drafting callouts

I work on large assembly drafting, I want to know, whether there is any possibility to give the callout of items in the parts list automatically on drawing views? I knew about Auto Balloon in NX 10.0, but we use customized parts list. I have attached reference drawing. Any help on this is much appreciated!

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks & Regards,
SAM

Re: Auto callout in UGNX

Hello Anthony,

 

Thank you very much for your response!

 

I had tried your way and it worked. But I have few questions below:

 

1. I have attached a test assembly .prt files with two top levels in that zip file. One is named as Block assy with callouts and other is named as Block assy without callouts. In this assembly, you will find the regular parts list format we genearlly use in our work and in assembly with callouts, I have placed the callouts in our general way and also I have attached Callout_attribute.jpg image which shows the recorded attributes of each item in its own callout. So, this helps us to identify the left over callout to an item in the parts list when we generate a callout report. Is there any way to match NX parts list properties and our parts list properties? 

 

2. Is there any possibility to modify our parts list settings to make that identify by auto balloon command? Please feel free to test on Block assy_without callouts.prt file. Please help me!

Sorry for troubling you..but really thanks for your help! 

 

Thanks,
Shanmuk

Thanks & Regards,
SAM

You might call it a parts list, but to me it's a bunch of dead lines & manually created text. In my day job I've created a whole series of videos on drafting templates which appear at: https://vimeo.com/album/3065578 Amongst these videos are ones about parts lists and attributes which will detail exactly what you need to do to get what you're after (along with what I've detailed above).
