Did you know about enhanced placement references in IFX 6.0?

We have enhanced the usage of setting the SURFACE, AXIS and ORIENT values to your 'Fastener Data File' *.dat.

 

In the past you have to enter all ID pairs for all listed fastener in your *.dat file.

 

Now you can do following:

  • Add a name to SURFACE, AXIS and ORIENT instead of item ids.

  • Add columns #SURACE, #AXIS and #ORIENT to control item ids of each fastener instance

The advantages are:

  • Use one name instead of different item ids.

  • Easier to customize, more intuitive and clearer.

  • More flexibility – different ids for each instance in your Fastener Data File

Example 1:

Before:

SURFACE 29 12 128 296
AXIS 10 8 117 24

After:

SURFACE PLACEMENT_SURFACE
AXIS PLACEMENT_AXIS

 

Example 2:

Before:

SURFACE 29 12 128 296 75 ...
AXIS 10 8 117 24 12 ...

Aftern:

SYMBOL DN    ... #SURFACE #AXIS
...      
FASTENER1 10 29 12
FASTENER2 10 12 8
FASTENER3 10 128 117
...      

 

This new functionality is available since IFX 6.0.2.0 but is not available in the OLH now. It will be introduced as new feature in Creo Parameteric 7.0.
