Create Assemblies from CSV: assign assembly numbers
« on: June 07, 2018, 09:59:43 AM »
Hi,
I just found the function to import a CSV file to assign components to new assemblies, which works fine.
Is there a way to change the assembly number in the same way? I get #1, #2, ... etc.
The help file "Creating Assemblies" uses some "# ID" in the first field but (if this is what I am looking for) I do not know how to use it.
Thanks,
Jan

Hi Jan,

Although you cannot directly control the numbering, it is possible to do so by hand. When you import .csv files for assemblies, it uses the name of the .csv as the name of the assembly. Importing multiple will number them in alphabetical order.

There are two ways to use this to number them how you want:

  • Manually change the assembly numbers in the FEM viewer after creation
  • When importing, preface your assembly name (in the .csv filename) with a number.

If you do the second option, you can number the assemblies (from 1 to n) in the filename, and they should respect the relative order (ascending order of the numbers) when imported.
