As the topic says, I would like to remove all links from a draft.
There is this function that if you right click a view on a draft you can select "convert to 2D" and if you right click the parts list, you can "convert to table".
Atm you can't select several views, so if you have 30 views divided on several sheets, it will get abit timeconsuming. If you have alot of drafts you want to do this to.
Any ideas guys?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would like to be able to save the draft, and have all the links removed.
So the draft will act like an autocad drawing.
This is how we revise our drafts as of today. We are a small company of only 2 engineers.
The process is.
1. open the draft you want to revise.
2. make a revision and do all the updates.
3. Open the old draft and remove all the links to models, this is to ensure that there will be no updates to the draft and we will be able to see how the part looked exactly at that time. This also makes it possible to measure the part if needed.
Sadly, pdfs are not really accurate enough regarding measuring.
We do make PDFs of all drawings.
Saveing the model is ALOT of work, if it is an assembly incldueing several hundred parts!
I can't really change the location of the model, the model is supposed to be used for the new revision =)
Set the status of your draft files to 'Released'.
Then use Revision Manager or 'Save As' to create your new revision.
When in 'Released' state you can't save changes to a draft file. The views will not change unless updated.
There are macro's on the internet that will change the status in batch mode, or you can use Property Manager on whole folders full.
Thanks for the response, sadly the drafts will be a little bit messy and you will need to scale the views properly to make proper measurements :/
