Category: Single Part View in Assembly Drawingdrawing that shows fabrication information for a basic or a nested assembly, including bolts and welds, and that is generally used at the workshop

Assembly drawings show how parts are located in an assembly. They contain the parts of the assembly presented in one or more views.

If you do not want to maintain the scale of the existing single part drawing included in an assembly drawing, set the advanced option XS_USE_EXISTING_SINGLE_PART_DRAWINGS_SCALE to FALSE. When you do this, the scale of the included single part drawing will follow the scale of the assembly drawing, or advanced option XS_SINGLE_SCALE if it is set.

Tekla Structures maintains the original scale in a single part drawing in an assembly drawing when you set the layout to include single part drawings, and set the option XS_USE_EXISTING_SINGLE_PART_DRAWINGS_IN_ASSEMBLY_DRAWINGS is set to TRUE.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
