i have both creo 6.0 and 5.0(EDU) installed, when i insert mm/DIN fastener it seems to be fine, but if i choose ANSI bolt like 6-32 Socket, it will say csdd.prt not found. i did navigate this file, it's not in ifx_fastener_data forder but in prolibrary. i want to know how to add path of prolibrary with ANSI standard to IFX, or how do i merge all prt files from prolibrary to ifx_fastener_data folder.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You cannot merge existing parts into IFX.
To modify the IFX files requires the purchased full license.
The IFX lite distributed for free with Creo 3+ does not allow editing the files.
Look in your license file for this line:
# Optional Modules = Intelligent Fastener Extension
If you have that, you have the full version, I think.
I do not have it in my SE perpetual package file, but that is in the subscription Design Advanced file.
Thanks for helping me! I'm going to try these today. I talked to my friend who is on 5.0, he said he got exactly same problem. Does that indicates 5.0 got same problem? I skipped the 5.0 and just moved to 6 due to another critical bug in 4.0
in Creo 22.214.171.124 with wrong search.pro file I get error message
Model 'E:\PTC\Creo6_010\Creo 126.96.36.199\Common Files\ifx\parts\ifx_fastener_data\csdd.PRT' not found.
In Creo 188.8.131.52 I can place the same screw successfully.
i can now see there's definetely sth wrong in either 6.0.1 search.pro file, it point everything to old 5.0 file structure. Im wondering whether i should manually merge new IFX folder to old style (under AFX folder along with factory parts&structure library) or replace .pro, is Creo in the future plans to have IFX separate and make AFX library much easier to access and manage IFX as part of standard core file instead of user-defined library?
If not, can i merge folders so that i could avoid future upgrade file corruption?
also could you screenshot the fixed search.pro first couple lines? I think my system doesn't really take that character encode. Are they just for comment?
Thank you so much!
Sorry for late reply, i just checked, didnt find that line, but it worked somehow. im not the guy purchasing license so idk how the hell the Flexnet thing works here.
