Working Within the Hardware Parts Tab

The Hardware Parts tab is where hardware items for the product are located. Note: If the Hardware Parts tab does not contain any hardware items, they may be contained in a subassembly.

Hardware items can be manually added to the Hardware Parts tab. For the hardware to show up in reports when processing a work order, you must have, at a minimum, a part name, and a quantity. A width, height, or depth may be required for the hardware item you are adding.

If the hardware item has a 3D drawing block matching the name of the hardware item, values in the X, Y, and Z origins and rotations will allow the hardware item to be drawn. An associative rotation is required if the hardware item has associative machining tokens. For example, concealed euro-style hinges and base plates have associative machining.

Right-clicking with a cell selected in the Hardware Parts tab will display the following menu.


  1. Save Cut List to Disk – Allows you to save the product as a CUTX file.
