Assign control numbers to parts

  1. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Numbering settings > Assign control numbers to open the Create control numbers dialog box.

    • To number the entire model, do not select any parts.

  3. If you want to assign control numbers only to parts in a specific numbering series:
    1. In the Numbering list, select By numbering serie.
    2. Enter the Prefix and Start number in the corresponding boxes.
  4. Define the control numbers to be used.
    1. In the Start number of control numbers box, enter the first control number to be used.
    2. In the Step value box, define the control number interval.

      For example, to assign the control numbers 2, 5, 8, 11, and so on, enter 2 in the Start number of control numbers box and 3 in the Step value box.

  5. Use the Renumber list to specify how to treat parts that already have control numbers.
    • Select No to keep the existing control numbers.

    • Select Yes to replace the existing control numbers with new ones.

  6. Use the First direction, Second direction, and Third direction lists to define the order of control numbers.
