IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

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.

Re: IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

Hi,

if your problem is related to Creo Parametric 6.0, then I can tell you that there is a bug in $CREO_COMMON_FILES\ifx\parts\prolibrary\search.pro file.

Attached you will find original and corrected file.

Re: IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

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.

Re: IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

Hi Ben,
I'm not sure if I have IFX full license, but I remember when I was on 3.0 I have no problem with ANSI library. I don't really believe how could DIN standard is requirednfor purchasing while DIN standard is free to use. Not trying to edit file, just trying to get ANSI-English parts working correctly. I'm pretty sure I didn't edit IFX in 3.0 and ANSI just worked fine as DIN.

Hi Martin,
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

Re: IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

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.

Hi,

in Creo 6.0.1.0 with wrong search.pro file I get error message

Model 'E:\PTC\Creo6_010\Creo 6.0.1.0\Common Files\ifx\parts\ifx_fastener_data\csdd.PRT' not found.

when assembling

In Creo 5.0.4.0 I can place the same screw successfully.

Re: IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

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?

Re: IFX cannot find ANSI fastener prt file

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!

Hi Ben,
