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.
We usually make an unassociative wavelink to store all geometry in just one prt file. In our case this is perfectly valid because we seldom have to move components inside a purchased assembly. Sometimes we have to, in those cases we use move object command to move bodies inside the single prt file. We find this approach quite useful because we avoid to create a lot of files that we would have to update, revise... we only make revision of the item that contains the assembly prt file.
May I know if any specific regulatory guidances for the industry are available on document management system/software apart from 21 CFR Part 11.
Thanks and regards,
