Creo 7.0/8.0+ Multibody Home: Start Here!   I'm creating this blog to be the central home page for anyone interested in trying out the new capabilities first introduced in Creo 7.0  that support multibody design. Below will be links to other blog posts on specific detailed topics under the general heading of multibody. I'm interested in getting your feedback on all the new stuff, but I also want to try to do this in a somewhat organized fashion. So, you can think of this blog as the top node of a tree that will have a number of branches below it for the various multibody related topics.   In parallel to the list of blog posts below, I also plan to maintain a Multibody Infos post that provides you with links to further information, documentation, presentations, and any other information bits and pieces around multibody design in Creo. To get going effectively, I encourage you to first go through the What’s new material and tutorials that you find there, so that you have an overview and high level background on the use cases and capabilities. That will allow me then to go one level deeper and include some tips, tricks etc. in the blog posted here. I hope to be able to post new information regularly and hope you tune in, find it beneficial and give feedback in return.   If you want to send me private messages, that’s fine, too. In particular if you have any suggestion on future blog post topics or questions, feel free to contact me at mneumueller@ptc.com .

Hi all, as this came up in several threads, let me add a consolidated post here referring to  External Copy Geometry (ECG) and body attribute propagation. The questions here are mostly related to the logic of the propagation options for bodies (and also other objects)   Note that the ECG has settings within its option panel to control the propagation of parameters. This includes several aspects ranging from appearances to body names and more, and it also includes an option to propagate the construction body attribute. It also depends on whether an external body/or bodies are added "as is" or being merged into the existing body in the part. Here is how the options look like:   Some questions had been raised for example about how the construction yes/no option works when a body is brought via ECG from a source model to a target model, initially with that option checked and then unchecked during Edit-Definition of the ECG.   The answer to that is that this option is a logical toggle that allows to control whether the status/attribute from the source should be propagated to the target. If you "uncheck" it, the "construction" body attribute/status will no longer be propagated to the target. That means an update of the ECG will no longer force an update of the construction attribute in the target body.  That means the target body will stay a construction body (simply because that is its current state  and no update is forcing the body to change that status.) If you do a right-menu action on the body to "Unset construction body" status, then the body should become a regular solid body and should no longer change to construction during an ECG update. The publications team is currently working to provide additional explanations to the behavior into the online help sections. You should see that in the upcoming maintenance releases.
