I've a few questions regarding to Assembly Drawing. If anyone know how to solve them or know the sources/link to get the solution, hopefully can help me.
1) Can Solid Edge retrieve the dimension that already assigned in parts into assembly drawing. For Assembly design can retrieve using retrieve dimension command. How assembly drawing?
2) How to customize the sequences of the balloon. How to manipulate the Item Number?
3) After finish doing assembly drawing, the file can be save as AutoCAD file (.dwg), but the scale is not maintain to 1:1. How to control the scale?
Thank for help.

Solved! Go to Solution.
To manipulate item number, you have to go into your parts lists properties, and under the options tab check the box for "Renumber items/balloons according to sort order", then if you go to the sorting tab and for the first sort criteria you set it to "ITEM" then you can click on a part balloon and key in whatever number you wish. If you want something to go to the end of the line and say you have 20 parts, set it to item 21 and the whole list will reorganize with that part at the end of the parts list at item 20.
The item number and data tabs in parts list properties can be used as well but make sure no sorting rules are active.
When you save as DWG, select options and step thru the translation wizard. On the second page of the wizard you will find the scaling otions. At the end of this process you will need to save the seacad.ini file to a new name as the original seacad.ini cannot be overwritten.
