Part Identification

Unread post by kerns » Fri Jul 28, 2017 2:05 pm

I am trying to find out how to get an ID number for each part that references the unit it belongs to.
I tried using the index but it doesn't carry through to "panels" with edge banding.
Example: I have 18 inserted assemblies that I am releasing to manufacturing as one work order. That creates over 100 parts. How do I identify which unit each part belongs to?

Then each assembly gets a number and each part get the number of the assembly before the part index
you can change the separator and numbering type in tools options
