Advanced Techniques
This chapter explains how to use many advanced techniques in Drawing mode, such as creatingsnapshot views, using snap lines, creating and changing line style, and using the model grid.
Working with Multi-Model Drawings
You can manipulate views of different models that appear in the same drawing in several ways:
Display an assembly and all of its component parts.
Clearly show all part and assembly dimensions in the same drawing.
Display several members of the same family with different sets of features.
Work with detail items, tables, repeat regions, and so on, belonging to anyone of the models.
An Example of Multiple Models in a Single Drawing
When working with multi-model drawings, keep in mind the following:
 You must add all models that are shown in the drawing to the drawing beforeyou can display them as views.
 The system sets the drawing scale of each model independently (you maynotice the scale value at the bottom-left corner changing when you setdifferent models). Modify this scale for each model when the model is active.
 To add views of a particular model, you must set that model as active.
When you add relations, the system adds them to the current model. Therefore, select a model before adding a relation.
When you replace a generic assembly with an instance assembly that usesPART_B instead of PART_A, you must choose
from the DETAILmenu and click
in the Show/Erase dialog box to show dimensionsof PART_B.
Adding Models to the Drawing
Before you can use a model in a view and dimension it, you must add it to the drawing. Adding amodel to the drawing does not place a view of the model on the sheet, but enables the drawing toreference the model so that you can place a view. Add the first model by choosing
fromthe DRAWING menu and typing the model name. For all subsequent models, choose
from the DWG MODELS menu.
 You can remove a model by choosing
Del Model
from the DWG MODELSmenu; however, you must delete
views of the model first.
 You can replace one part with another by choosing
from the DWGMODELS menu
the parts are members of the same family table.
Setting a Default Model
Pro/ENGINEER considers only one model in the drawing to be the default, or current, model.The last model added to the drawing becomes the current model, but you can set any model ascurrent by choosing
Set Model
from the DWG MODELS menu.The system references an active model when you are adding views, or for any function thatrequires a default model. For example, when you add a repeat region to a drawing table, typereport parameters in the repeat region, and update the table, it lists information from the modelthat was the current drawing model at the time that you added the repeat region to the table. Inaddition, the Pro/ENGINEER 
menu and the
command in the DRAWING menuapply to the active model.
How to Set a Model as Current
1.Choose VIEWS >
Dwg Models
Set Model
.2.Do one of the following:
Select the model with which you want to work from the namelist menu.It contains only model names that you have added to the drawing.
Select a view of the model that you want to make active.3.To highlight the active model, choose DWG MODELS >
Model Disp
.4.To return the model display back to normal, choose MODEL DISP >
Verifying Differences Between Drawings
Using the
command in the Pro/ENGINEER 
menu, you can verify thedifferences between two versions of a drawing. After storing a picture of the drawing, you canlater retrieve it over the drawing. Anything that is the same cancels out, leaving on the screenonly the differences between the two.To generate a report that lists the differences between two objects, choose
from theDRAWING menu and
from the ADV DWG OPTS menu. For more information, see
 Introduction to Pro/ENGINEER
Including a Bill of Materials in a Drawing
If you do not have the Pro/REPORT module, but you want to add a Bill of Materials (BOM) toyour drawing, you can create a BOM file in Assembly mode by choosing
from thePro/ENGINEER 
menu. Add the BOM file to the drawing as a note entered from a file. Toformat or arrange the information in the BOM, you must use the system editor. You can fullyedit the BOM displayed on the drawing as a note without affecting the original BOM file. For more information on creating and formatting a BOM, see.
