Part studio into drawing

alex_waterhousealex_waterhouse Member Posts: 3
Is it possible to insert the entire part studio into a drawing. I have created a clock design in the part studio and have added numbers onto the clock using the extrude 'new' feature, saving the need to add them on in an assembly. When I then go into 'drawing', it only will allow me to insert the individual parts, or an assembly - which I don't have as I created it all in the same part studio. 
Thank you

    I have been playing around with it. I have been able to do it by putting the part into an assembly then putting the assembly into the drawing. 
    Is this the way that this has to be done?

    Currently no, but it is in the plans.  The current workaround is to add the entire part studio to an assembly and use that.

    I will add you to the request.

    Inserting whole part studio to assembly is pretty straight forward and if you need to add more parts you can simply select a bunch of parts and add group mate which will fix all selected parts into each other - no further mating needed.

    @jakeramsley please add me to that IR too, even though workaround is easy and fast - it is extra work and extra tab.
