Original Question: Has anyone brought up harnesses in Productview? I have a harness that I have converted the files to .ed & .ol files Viewing in Productview and Productview Express.I am not able to select the checkmark for the harness part in the Product Structure menu for viewing. Is their a different procedure for viewing harnesses in Productview that I am not aware of?
Productview Express is a web based viewer and will view any pro-e files. Even the harness part without the assembly. Not much functionality though, no measurement capabilities, or adding notes, dimensions. But it is free and anyone can download it.
Productview is a licensed software and has much more functionality. Although to view Harnesses you have to modify settings. I have not modified these settings to prove it out. cable/harness information is not published automatically by the Pro/ENGINEER Object Adapter. Please edit the CAD Worker recipe file (<worker_directory>\proe2pv.rcp) with the recipe editor (\bin\rcpedit.exe). Select the Parameters tab > Miscellaneous tab > select the Cable check box > #Save > #Exit. Restart the worker, republish the object, and view it in ProductView
