Whenever I export a family table instance out of Creo, it only export the generic. Is there a way to export just the instance without either saving the instance as a different part number and export that number or using Power Shell?
Running Creo 2.0 & Windchill 10.0
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do a backup of just the generic file. There is only 1 file that contains all of the instances.
If you need to export just 1 instance, then do a save as to another folder on disk to get that one instance.
Thanks Ben. We'll have to do a Save As another name in our workspace and export that way since working with Windchill isn't allowing us to automatically choose another location for the Save As. We're starting to work with 3D Interconnect with Solidworks and needed the specific instances of the parts.
The Save As should allow you to choose a system directory outside of Windchill, which is where you want the individual members so you can use them with SolidWorks.
Are you using Windchill to store the Solidworks 3d-interconnect file? They mention there is not support for it and we are trying to figure out a workaround so we can still use Windchill.
The opposite actually. Our plan is to migrate Creo data into Solidworks PDM until a time comes where we can recreate it in Solidworks. In the meantime, the plan is to use 3D Interconnect in SW when using existing Creo files. There are some hurdles because of software versions between the 2 CAD softwares so it's still a work in progress.
