Does anyone know if it is possible to search for a document in an assembly structure? for example: I want to find a part that I have used somewhere in assembly A.
Click on the part in the vault view and select where used tab and it will show the number of assemblies this part has been used.
From the sound of it, I think using the Feature Manager search filter inside of SolidWorks along with the SolidWorks EPDM add in should answer your question. In your SolidWorks assembly, search for the part that you are looking for, then select it. Once selected you will see it highlighted in the EPDM add in. From there you can use the EPDM tools such as Check Out, Change State and even where used.
Ok, but then you need to open Solidworks.
I want to do this in epdm search. but it seems that it is only possible to search in the properties of a file, not in the references of that file.you can also search on a certain location. but all that is not exactly wat I want.
I want to search for a part that excist in in a certain assembly. I know some properties of that part, and I know that the part is used in an assembly. that assembly is known.
