About Report Functionality in Piping
You can use Drawing report tables with Piping to create a customized table or Bill of Materials (BOM) for a piping assembly. A piping assembly drawing is the same as a drawing of any other Creo Parametric object, except that it uses special parameters. The customized table updates automatically to reflect changes in the piping assembly. You can customize drawing tables to reflect the standard practices of your company.
When you use Drawing report tables in a piping assembly, keep in mind the following:
The system creates pipe segment bend information and stores it in the piping assembly. You do not generate the bend information directly in the drawing. However, you can access it automatically by using the Drawing report tables after you use Show Report Setup in Assembly/Piping mode. You can format the report table in any way that you choose.
To create a piping report, be sure to set the repeat region attribute to Recursive.
To create a report that contains only piping information in the top-level assembly, set the Recursive attribute in the repeat region and add the filter [&rpt.level==1]
You cannot use report parameters that contain more than 32 characters in report relations, for example, as filters for what is shown in a table.
