Drafting - Connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product

Drafting - Connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product

Drafting - Connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product

(OP)
Do we have any connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product?
Or with other words, by having a line from a view generated from 3D, is it possible to find Product Name?

RE: Drafting - Connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product

Hi.

Do you have access to CAA?

RE: Drafting - Connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product

(OP)
I do not have CAA, but I had heard the name a few time and maybe I would need to read more about it.
Any ideea how much a license would cost in order to use CAA?

RE: Drafting - Connection between GeneratedItem and 3D Product

prices are not supposed to be public, so contact your VAR to check the price

Without CAA your only option is to exploit behaviour activated with "3D color inheritance" mode switched on.

1. Switch to model
2. Color parts in question in some unique colors (Selection.VisProperties.SetRealColor)
3. Switch back to drawing view, update it
4. Search for colored generated geometry via Selection.Search. Determine which geometry relates to which part by color.
