If you have cases where you need to span a single assembly mark across multiple assembly drawings or multiple multi drawings:
- The Assembly Drawing mark will have a space hyphen space “– X” suffix in the document manager;
- Multi drawings will need to have a “ – X” suffix on all sheets except the first one.
Essentially the last hyphen seen in the drawing mark / multi sheet name will be considered the sheet separator / delimiter even if the assembly / multi drawings already have hyphens in them.
In the multi-drawing example to the right, notice there is a sheet 100, which would be the first sheet that assembly drawing views will be linked to and will assign the multi number 100B1 to the assembly drawing and mark.
Any subsequent multi drawings for that sheet should be suffixed with “ – X”.
The tool will then recognize that these multi drawings are tied together and will be combined into one single PDF binder, 100.pdf in this example. When adding assembly drawing views to subsequent multi drawings like 100 – 2, 100 – 3, etc, do not use the link drawing views feature, use the copy drawing views feature.
If you use the link drawing views, it will output one of the “ – X” multi drawings as the main multi drawing in the KISS file.
