Missing Componets Retrieval

HI , 

When i open a model on CREO 6 , some componets is missing , so i must retrieve them manualy. 

I have all my componets on subfolders in 3d_library folder , and search.pro file refered on those subfolders . In the model tree , componets 08021800_kabiles_m8x30 , are located in the same main folder with the missing componets. The missing componets on the second abstract , model retrieve them , if i make regen twice.

and location of componets in subfolders on 3d_library folder

 

D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\KABILIES.  (ok, retrieve them , componets 08021800_kabiles_m8x30)

D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\SCREWS (need retrieval , missing componets)

D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\PODIA_KOYZINAS (second missing items , retrieve them after two regenarations)

 

Can anyone help me ? Where is my mistake ?

Hi,

if 130 components are located in the same directory then you need 1 search_path option.

If every component is located in its own directory then you need 130 search_path options.

Re: Missing Componets Retrieval

If I understand there are missing components when retrieving "BASE_102.ASM" but when you regenerate twice the missing components are retrieved.

 

If this is correct it sounds like Creo dies not search for the components until you regenerate a specifc model and is not an issue with search paths. Do you know why this model requires 2X regeneration to fully regenerate?

 

I would investigate the subassemblies of the top level assembly and determine why they are not regenerated upon retrieval from disk. Clear all models from RAM and open the subassemblies one at a time to determine why they are not regenerating and work your way up to the top level assembly.

Re: Missing Componets Retrieval

When regen twice , Kitchen_feet componets retrieved. 

Bida_mont_allen componet , does not. I must retrieve it manualy. 

I have try everything. 

The same goes for other models , not only with  "BASE_102.ASM" . I musτ retrieve almost everything manualy.

Hi,

remove search.pro file and add following options into config.pro

search_path D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\KABILIES
search_path D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\PODIA_KOYZINAS
search_path D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\SCREWS

Re: Missing Componets Retrieval

Maybe it was a typing mistake, but you show in your config.pro that

 

search_path_file D:CREO_CAD_CAM3D\START_MODEL_DIR\search.pro

 

But you say that the search.pro file is in D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D

That might be part of the problem, but usually if parts are "findable" by Creo it will load them. The only time I've had to regenerate is when they were in a directory not listed in the search.pro.

Re: Missing Componets Retrieval

Hi,


How @MartinHanak said, remove the search.pro file and add the search path to your config.pro. You can add multiple paths on the same line.

 

remove search.pro file and add edit the search path into config.pro

search_path

D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\KABILIES, D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\PODIA_KOYZINAS, D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\3D_LIBRARY\SCREWS

 

Second thought...

Double-check if you call the search_path_file it is set for the correct location.

From your pictures, you have a different path in Creo config.pro than the actual location of the file

Creo config calls: D:\CREO_CAD_CA,3D\START_MODEL_DIR\search.pro

And the actual location of the search.pro file is: D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D

 

Take care!

Re: Missing Componets Retrieval

Thanks all for your help. 

At first , i had typing wrong the path of config.pro , as the correct location is  D:\CREO_CAD_CAM3D\START_MODEL_DIR\search.pro . 
 I have try anything. My last change is the suggest of @MartinHanak to edit the config.pro with search_path option , in a row with commas separators.
I dont know what else can i do

Commas separated in search_path,

it works..... i have a library of at least 130 components . I must do the same for all of that ? Jesus Christ. And to feed search_path when i make something new ?

I wan to cry ....

Hi,

if 130 components are located in the same directory then you need 1 search_path option.

If every component is located in its own directory then you need 130 search_path options.

Re: Missing Componets Retrieval

If you do a search in (the little box at the top right of this page) you will find lots and lots of discussions about how to set up a search path, using a reference in your config.pro and a file, usually called search.pro, that lists all the directories you want Creo to search for your files. If you want to do this on a project basis, it's been discussed and I've supplied a DOS .bat script that will build a couple of files for you. Here's a link to the discussion.

 

Past Search Path Discussion 

 

Using a utility program like this is better for me because it avoids the inevitable spelling errors that occur when manually creating the search.pro file. Bear in mind, however, that the more directories you specify in the list, the longer it will take Creo to (eventually) find your parts/assemblies.
