Rename parts with a parameter

Rename parts with a parameter

Hello.

Is there a way to rename parts/assemblies/drawings using a parameter? Or is there a way to rename automatically several files writing the name only one time? The problem is that I have to rename the drawing, assembly and a part with the same name a lot of times, so it would be good if there is a way to reduce the time inverted on it.

Thanks in advance

You can't use a parameter to do this. The best you can do is to use a mapkey or one of the APIs if you can program.

Re: Rename parts with a parameter

you can also click save as copy, where you can rename them all at once. it also supports search and replace and wildcards (*) so if you have a properly defined name in the beginning, you can convert it to whatever you want.

Re: Rename parts with a parameter

Hi,

renaming is dangerous operation, because all related objects must be opened in Creo session, renamed and saved.

Solution no.1: Rename files using Windchill functionality, if you have Windchill implemented

Solution no.2: Create custom application, which executes renaming action for you according your company rules.

Im currently using creo 3.0. I can't find the option for opening the dialog box. From where do you open it?
