Part to include text stating which assemblies it is a part of

Pioneer

Hey guys.  I am making a template and I want the part file to state which assemblies it belongs to.  Probably just the names of the files without the extensions.

Thanks.

Hi there,

 

You can't do it in "Part" perse, but you can do this type of query using the Revision Manager - with the "Where Used" function, to list the files it is used in.

I'm pretty sure this isn't possible, since a part can be in multiple assemblies.

Interesting.

 

I don't believe there is any kind of "Where used" functionality in the model files. I'm just starting to figure out how to use that in revision manager. I wonder how the revision manager figures that out?

 

Parts can be used as many times as you like. I have a few parts that are used in 100's of files.

The Where Used function is available in part and assembly -
Application Icon > Manage > Where Used.
In an assembly you can RMB on a part then Manage > Where Used.
Unfortunately it is not available as a 'property'.

As far as I can tell, all this "where used" stuff does is find the original file.  Since I don't have a part file in each project folder, I don't see a connection to any assemblies.  Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

When you do a "Where Used" on a part, select a broader folder....that assembly has to be in that folder or any of its subfolders. If you need to then select the drive that contains all of the assemblies.

Ugh.  Simple as that eh?  I had selected the folder I wanted, but when I clicked "add" then it took the folder within that folder that was highlighted only.  Thanks!
