I have an assembly made up of instances of a Variable Part placed in a drawing, is there a way of getting the Lengths of these variable parts to show in my part list. I cannot find any indication of these lengths in the assembly file.

Isn't the part variable length(s) controlled by variable(s) in the assembly? I think you would have to expose the assembly variable(s) and show them in parts list columns. Haven't tried an assembly with multiple copies of an adjustable part with different values assigned to the adjustable variable in each.

Has this been created as an adjustable part, or a family of parts ?

I would have thought you would only get one instance of an adjustable part in an assembly parts list, no matter how many times its used.

On further thought, @beachcomber, what you say is obvious. Thanks
