Manipulating Parts List Generation of Callout detail #'s in NX9

Manipulating Parts List Generation of Callout detail #'s in NX9

Manipulating Parts List Generation of Callout detail #'s in NX9

Is there any way that I can group certain items of my assembly to have the parts list assign callouts 1-100 for one sub-assembly, then have the next sub-assembly to start at 100-200, the next 200-300. Etc

RE: Manipulating Parts List Generation of Callout detail #'s in NX9

Just make several partlists, one for each sub assembly. For each part list, right click on the list to change list levels for selecting only one sub assembly (and its children), then right click on the list >> update part list and finally right click on the list >> settings, in the part list menu (left pane) you can change the starting number and the increment. Beware, you have to go to the part list settings, not the cell settings.

What's the purpose of this request ?

I doubt that it's possible.
maybe if you run NX under Teamcenter , but then it gets more complex since Callouts is not something Teamcenter puts much effort into.
