Document Management

Just getting started/testing in TC nxmanager.

How do you structure and save into Tc a Purchased assembly?

We purchase item 123-456 which is a ball valve,

We have created the components 123-456_body.prt and 123-456_ball.prt and the assembly 123-456.prt

When saving this into TC do we need to create Items and revisions for all the components?

or can we just somehow have them all; body, ball and assemlby as part of the same item and revision.

Yes they need to stay separte component files for use in arangments and may be used in exploded views.

Production: NX 11, TC11.2.3

Re: Document Management

Separate Items for each component.
