We have enhanced the usage of setting the SURFACE, AXIS and ORIENT values to your 'Fastener Data File' *.dat.
In the past you have to enter all ID pairs for all listed fastener in your *.dat file.
Now you can do following:
Add a name to SURFACE, AXIS and ORIENT instead of item ids.
Add columns #SURACE, #AXIS and #ORIENT to control item ids of each fastener instance
The advantages are:
Use one name instead of different item ids.
Easier to customize, more intuitive and clearer.
More flexibility – different ids for each instance in your Fastener Data File
This new functionality is available since IFX 18.104.22.168 but is not available in the OLH now. It will be introduced as new feature in Creo Parameteric 7.0.
