AFX conenctor/equipment element_name

Hey,

 

Is there a way to change to the basic element names in AFX? I know there is element_name.txt, but that also use the ELEMENT_NAME but I want to change that.

 

Thank you!

Hi @mvitárius,

 

you can achieve that with the custom_modelnames.txt file. 

There should be a template folder called customization in your afx directory.

 

Inside you'll find text/<LANG>/custom_modelnames.txt

 

Simply add those lines as an example for your element:

verbinder_45_45_1
BOSCH_REXROTH_3842543403
BOSCH_REXROTH_3842543403

 

Also make sure to copy that file into all language folders you are planning to use the element in.

 

To figure out the real model name of the element you'll need to dig into the "afx/parts/... " directory and figure out the original name of the element. Best way to do this is to check the sel_list.txt file. It has the same order as the dialog inside of Creo.

 

I hope this helps.
