How does BUW_NAME work?

I am trying to set up a customized bolt library.

Basically, I am modifying existing dat file to achieve this.

Now, I can't figure out how the BUW_NAME works. The default fastener part will get a BUW_NAME that is different from the dat file.

For example, If I create a M10 coutersunk screw. The parameter "BUW_NAME" of the screw is "Coutersunk Screw". But in the dat file the "BUW_NAME" is "countersunkscrew".

If I change the "BUW_NAME" of the dat file into "coutersunkscrew1", then I will get screws with parameter "BUW_NAME" of "coutersunkscrew1".

It seems the default library screw get the value of "BUW_NAME" from somewhere else.

What is the secret behind this?

If somebody can answer this, please?

Thanks

Yifeng

Hi Yifeng,

the secret is a translation file. All values from the columns BUW_NAME, BUW_TYPE and BUW_SIZE can be translated by using the file <creo loadpoint>\Common Files\afx\text\<LANG>\sl70_par.txt


Use a prefix "sl70_par_" for you keyword from the columns "BUW_*" and IFX will translate the value for you.

If you do not need a translation, then you can of course enter the value directly to your BUW_* columns in the dat file.
