I wanted to know if there is anyway to import paramaters from an already existing assembly file to another. I know there is a way to import using a .xml but I don't have an xml file. What I mean is I have an existing blank .asm file with parameters already set up and I want those to be imported into an existing asm I already have which contains no paramters but the built in ones. I really don't want to have to restart this asm as it was very time consuming. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Open the blank.asm and export the parameters as an .xml file. Import this .xml into the .asm file where they are needed.
I'm working with Creo 4.0 here, and I found that you can open the parameters dialog, select all the ones you want to copy, then right-mouse-button Copy. Open the assembly/part you want to copy them to, open its parameters dialog, then right-mouse-button Paste. It will complain if any of the parameters are already in the target, but that's a good thing.
In addition to the other comments, if this is a systemic problem and not just a one-off you can look into implementing Model Check which can create and check the parameters for you.
