    Solidworks Assembly to eDrawings - Components Grouping

    Praveen S.

      Greetings Everyone.

      I may take your time for a long passage. but I would like to detail my issue.

      Am using Solidworks 2018 Standard version.

      I have completed a large assembly consists of 2000+ components (parts & assemblies).

      My Requirement : Submission of 3D model as eDrawing format to End user, and the one should be easy to identify similar components altogether in the assembly.

      Am Freezed in :  Basically i have not done grouping of components so far.

      I explored somehow and identified either it could be done by "Group Component Instances", "Create New Folder" or "Form New Sub-Assembly".

      Am not sure how far am correct.

      But here too (in either of 3 ways) the components that has been Patterned or Mirrored cannot be grouped.

      I tried converting as exe file at this stage (hoping am half the way), but the output of edrawing showed none of the components are grouped together;

      there were no impact of grouping done in solidworks assembly has been reflected into edrawings.

       

      I would be very thankful to resolve this.

       

      Thanks,

      Praveen
