Drawing of a generic& fam table instance.


New member
Hi All,

Is it possible to get family table instance drawings automatically if I made the drw of the generic asm only ?

Here the fam table is of an assembly just varying dimensions.

Thaks In Advance

Not automatically, but very easily!

First bring up the generic drawing. Then rename it to the appropriate instance name. Then go to VIEWS/DRAWING MODELS/REPLACE and select the appropriate instance from the family table. The drawing will update automatically. Regenerate your views, move any details neccessary, and save. Repeat this proccess as needed for each instance.
