Multiple sheets or Multiple drawings

Multiple sheets or Multiple drawings

Multiple sheets or Multiple drawings

(OP)
Hello all,

Looking for a bit of advice.
In NX it is possible to create One drawing with multiple sheets, or you can create multiple drawings with one sheet each.
What would be the pro's and con's for each possibility?

RE: Multiple sheets or Multiple drawings

See attached movie Link that shows you how to accomplish this under nx10. I showed three methods that accomplish the same task. As far as I can see there is no advantage to "create multiple drawings with one sheet each".

RE: Multiple sheets or Multiple drawings

From a configuration management point of view, all of the sheets make up the drawing package. The easiest way to control them with the same revision and release is as a single drawing file.

RE: Multiple sheets or Multiple drawings

We used the master model concept in Native previously. We have a customized BOM per sheet and the sheets follow work centers. ie: laser, fabrication, assembly. We make separate specifications for each drawing and they are all under one item in Teamcenter.
