Tabulated Drawings

I am trying to figure out how to create a tabulated drawing using the family table in PRO E.  I can create the table but I am not sure how to enter the text into the table to call the information directly from the family table.  Please help me if you do know how to do this.  Thank You very much for you time and effort.

RE: Tabulated Drawings

It involves creating a repeat region.  Here is an abbreviated method of creating one using the 2D method:

To create a report table to reflect the information in a family table, first create a table with two rows and two columns. Then add a 2D repeat region using Table, Repeat Region, Add, Two-D. Select the upper left and lower right cells to define the outer region, and then select the lower right cell again to define the inner region. In the lower left cell enter &fam.inst.name, in the the lower right cell enter &fam.inst.param.value and in the upper right cell enter &fam.inst.param.name.

If your family table isn't complicated enough to warrant a 2D repeat region, you can do it without using the 2D method:


If, for some reason, you can't access PTC's cs portion of their website, let me know and I might be able to get it to you another way.
