Pro/Program to add inventor parts

Is it possible to use Pro/Program to add inventor parts using a variable?

 

tried:

Use_this_part="0000499747.IPT"

Use_this_part="0000499747.ipt"

Use_this_part="0000499747"

 

 

ADD COMPONENT (Use_this_part)
INTERNAL COMPONENT ID 49
END ADD

I'm not sure if it's possible. If you're swapping parts by passing a parameter to Pro/Program you need to have an interchange assembly setup to allow you to resolve references when swapping components.

Did you setup an Creo Interchange Assembly with the Inventor part? Not sure if this is possible either but maybe a good place to start.

I didn't set up an interchange. 
With Creo parts it works great but I just can't get it to work with Inventor parts.


 

 

You could always contact PTC support.

I sent one in yesterday. 

I feel like their #1 priority is to close tickets and not necessarily to help find solutions. A lot of the time they just say "nope, try adding it as a requested feature."

The answer is no, you can not use Inventor parts with Pro/Program using a variable.
