how can I "save as .jpg" all the components of my assembly?

hallo

for our Services department we need to have an image (jpg or png )of all individual part or sub assembly contained in our machine.(+400 items)

What is the best way to do that ?

Batch? Mapkey with maybe some vb ?

thanks for your help

I found this CS case about this... and I wonder if by default, Creo has trouble using this.

Those with maintenance can see this:

The noteworthy comment in the notice is that space characters in the Creo installation path will cause this function of converting images to fail.

This issue is true all the way through Creo 3.0 and updated as recently as this year.

Obviously, PTC added the spaces in a default install.  Go figure.  4 years now!

Hello Veronique,

I would do / have done similar with jlink but maybe there are simplier solutions.

first list all components of assembly (excluding scellettons)

open each component

apply matrix eg. for isometric view

raster and save the image

vb might be similar.

Bye

hi,

From Creo you can export TIFF files to disk. From there you will propably need some sort of batch converter, unless you can automate an app that can do it, like MS Paint.

Do you have the Creo assembly locally on your hard disk or in a Windchill workspace?

Re: how can I "save as .jpg" all the components of my assembly?

There are config options, save_bitmap - alllevels & save_bitmap_type - jpeg.

JPGs will be created every time  you save.

Creo Distributed Batch (was Pro/Batch) is a good option if you have access to it. 2016-09-30_16-10-42.png

Trailmaker 0.3 might be another option depending on how often you have to perform it on an entire structure and how much you want to automate it.

Nice, never knew that. I guess Veronique is all set now. In case the data is in Windchill one little export won't hurt.
