I guess the main thing I wanted to be able to do is filter the pieces so that only different piece count ones would show up. I guess subtracting the 2 isn't that hard to do in my head afterward
Since there are like 700 different pieces, going through and reading every single pair of piece counts between models to find which ones are different is a bit hard when there are so many. So like in my screen shot, it only shows the pieces that have different piece counts in the two models.
For example, in the model commonality analysis, you have the 2 columns that show piece counts in each model.
Model 1____________Model 2
Its not much fun trying to pick through that to find the "red
" ones, or counts that are different. It would be nice to be able to filter out the "black
That, and have a bottom table that shows the pieces (and count) that are only in one model. That way it is all in one operation, to easily compare the differences
. Just a streamlining, cause its a bit odd to have the two methods as separate (I have no idea how hard or possible it would be to combine those
) . For example, I don't know how many people use the "average difference" in piece count, so that could be a column that is left off (unchecked)...That might just be me being lazy and wanting it unchecked at the start
In a sense, I'm suggesting having the two features be a "Difference Analysis" and a "Commonality Analysis". The commonality can stay the same, but the "compare models" feature would not just show pieces that are only in one model, but show piece count differences also.
I hope this helped in explaining what I was trying to say, and can be useful too
I also sent you a PM with the LXF that had different piece counts in Excel. I found that the regular "import model and view parts" list left out some parts, like "outer cables", but still counted them in the final piece count. So for my model, it had 33,430 pieces, but in Excel there were 33,410. Out of that 20 difference, 11 were outer cables. I still can't figure out what the other 9 are though.
I'm excited to test out this snappier functionality!
