missing component with custom catalog

Hello group,

 

I'm trying to create a new IFX catalog, so I will ask several questions this days 🙂

at the first time, please let me wish you an happy new year guys.

 

and here is my first question:

I could add a custom screw, and it works with issues (this is for a next topic). when I save my assembly, close the CREO session (I use CREO4), and re open the assembly in a new CREO session, my screw is missing.

I try several things in the IFX_CATALOGS, like

 

1)

#screws
vis_rabourdin

 

2)

#screws
vis_rabourdin

1021_5_08<vis_rabourdin>
1021_5_10<vis_rabourdin>
1021_5_12<vis_rabourdin>
1021_5_14<vis_rabourdin>

 

or

 

3)

#screws
vis_rabourdin

1021_5_08
1021_5_10
1021_5_12
1021_5_14

 

 

without success.

please note that is a family table I use.

 

does someone can help me to understand why the component cannot be retrieve alone?

 

thanks in advance,

Ron

Hi Ronan,

I think you have your generic part copied to the ifx_fastener_data folder. This will not work. 

Please move all your fastener to Windchill (if available) or move them to a archive folder.

Then set a Creo option search_path to this folder.

I recommend to update the index in this folder

Update IndexUpdate Index

 

Then the files can be found by IFX and of course by Creo if you reopen the assembly.

Regards,

Oli
