Verify that every assembly component has a drawing

You are here:

Drew can make sure that every assembly component has a drawing. Just open an assembly, click Find Drawings and the components show up in this list:

assembly component drawings

Drew finds all components (with the assembly itself at the top) and checks if a drawing (with the same filename) exists for each part and assembly.

Filter checkboxes

The icons on the left are to filter out Parts, Assemblies, Toolbox components, Virtual components.

The icons on the right are to show files without a drawing and files with a drawing.
