Opening drawing from part model

Pro-Gurus,

I had a Solidworks guy here ask me if there is a way to open the drawing
in which a part is used in from the model itself? This is obviously
assuming you have the part/assembly and the drawing in your workspace. I
know you can do the inverse of opening the current model that is in a
drawing..the current model will automatically highlight when you select
File>Open while the drawing is up.



(Wildfire 3.0 & Intralink 3.4)



Thanks,



Nick

We use Start Up Tools to perform this action. There are other Toolkit applications that do this as well, but both options only work if the drawing name is the same as the part name. I.E. 12345.prt and 12345.drw

Hi

 

We uses a VB script to achieve this. Feel free to use it, but no support and no guaranties that it works for you.

It's made for Creo Parametric, currently using version 5.

Hi nsfreund,

 

You can do it also using a mapkey, look at this thread, a post from @lhoogeveen of 01-04-2019.

But it could be that it doesn't work for you because it is for Creo 4 M040.

 

Best wishes
