How do I assign assembly components to specific levels when exporting into Mastercam?
Back when I was doing this, I was exporting to parasolid and importing to MC. Components came in on assembly tree order, so reorder your assembly tree to the order you would like them to be in MC. Assembly tree order is arbitrary, unlike the feature tree in a part, so you can do this without breaking your assembly. Of course, this only works if your component levels match assembly tree order.
Thanks for the input Matt. This helps, but what I'm looking for is to specify a certain level for each component. Say, I want all 6-32 screws to import into level 8000 in MC and all 1/4-20 screws into level 7000.
since SW doesn't use layers (levels) there isn't a way with SW can do it out of the box, now maybe someone can write a macro?? to do this, not sure.
Have you called the MasterCam reps? maybe they have something to customize the iges import?
